Consignment Stores are a great place to find furniture that could be reinvented. Typically the prices are reasonable and the prices go down the longer it remains at the store. Here are some finds at Joy’s Consignment, I usually check out what they have at least once or twice a week. They have a ton of dining chairs right now if you are in the market. remember to keep and open mind they need to be REINVENTED call me if you need help!
Sheila Bridges: This designer not only has exquisite taste and an impeccable eye for pulling a room together, she rocks a bald head with grace and style. Sheila is best know for her “Harlem Toile” as she literally changed the faces of a toile fabric from classic themes of maids and maidens to girls jumping rope double dutch style and people dancing with a beat box nearby. She is a fan of what she call “furnishing forward” collecting pieces cheap or pricey, inherited or a yard sale and using them to furnish different rooms in different homes throughout your life. Great advice for the avid collector like myself. I’ve always picked up pieces I loved and found a place for them even if it is my garage for a year or two! Most things can be reworked with a little paint or fabric. She is also quoted as saying “Most things in life are beyond our control what you choose to put in your home is not.” I couldn’t agree more choose wisely.
It’s always nice to force a little spring around your house this time of year. I love to add pops of color now that all the Christmas decorations are gone and it seems so bare. Here a a few ways you can add color to your place. Happy Weekend!
