After years of living with the same furniture I’ve had since college (!), it’s finally time to decorate my house and have “a look”. As you can tell by my projects, I love the Americana/Primitive look (think Country Sampler magazine). To that end, I have been scouring the local thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales for some furniture and knick knacks that can be used in decorating. It’s been about a week and I already have several “finds” I am rather proud of.
This is a very nice quilt rack. It just needs to be cleaned up a bit!
This is a hand-crafted wooden bench. This needs to be cleaned and refinished. Shouldn’t be too hard for me to do (I hope).
This is known as a telephone chair – probably from the 40’s or 50’s. I plan to strip off the paint, re-paint it, and re-cover the cushion. Any suggestions for colors?
I just love this wooden carrier – not sure what it was used for, maybe tools? It’s in great condition, and I envision sitting by the fire and using this for my sewing projects. Lots of space to put wool, fabric, and other supplies!
