New RESTORATIONS:  I just ordered fabric for the following restorations.  I will be proceeding with the work as my budget allows. My AS IS pricing is no longer active ONCE THE WORK STARTS.  I will run the numbers after I talk to the upholsterer, but I did score the fabric for an amazing price!  I work hard to get fabric cheap and keep my expenses low.  

This piece just needs covers for the existing cushions.  I think the work will be pretty reasonable. I picked this awesome palm print perfect for a Florida room or tiki lounge, just as this piece needs to be!  Estimated completed price $600-800.

I just picked this fabulous pair up last weekend. France and Son Danish teak arm chairs with a beautiful profile.  Design by Sigvard Bernadotte and sold by John Stuart Inc. All metal tags are present.  These will be getting a full rebuild. New strapping, foam and upholstery. I am buying both of the above colors and deciding when they get here.  If you love them, you can choose.  💕 These are high end Danish, collectible and sexy as hell.  Off the cuff, finished price will probably be $1500+/- for the pair.  One choice is more cream, the other is oatmeal.  I think they will both compliment the warm teak wood beautifully! 

Another view. Those swoopy arms though!  The wood is excellent and look at the joinery on the arms! Just need to ditch the upholstery and rebuild the structures.

The main event! So you remember I came home with the Ry Mobler Wall unit and Murphy bed in September.  I quickly proved it was indeed a Hans Wegner design. 🤘🏼💕 Then decided we would keep it for my lucky son.  We finally got around to swapping his room out!  Step one: Trent disassembled his IKEA bed. 

step 2 lots of Danish Oil to bring the old dry teak back to life.

Step 3 lots of heavy lifting.  We disassembled the bed from the cabinet which made it a lot better to get up our flight of stairs in the foyer.  It’s a bilevel so tight for turns.

We made Trent help! He did a fine job taking apart his old bed too.

A few restorations I put on sale this week.  They are too beautiful be in my storage.  All pack flat.  Message on Etsy for shipping quote.

Project of the week- ottoman

As found.

As found.

I just picked up a sweet little bamboo/rattan ottoman that needed a cushion.  This was the perfect project to use more of the cobalt ikat print!  The rocker looks great in it and has sold and is moving out later this week.  I set to work this morning to get a round box cushion made for this piece. The project went very smooth.  I decided what diameter I needed and added an inch for seam allowance.  Then I cut a 3” strip make the side, also accounting for the seam allowance.  I machine stitched the piece together leaving a large enough opening to insert the foam pieces i cut then wrapped with batting.  After all was inserted, I pinned and hand stitched the cushion closed.  It is now available in my Etsy shop! 

A comfy treat for your feet!

The cushion featured medium grade upholstery fabric in a bright cobalt blue ikat print. Perfect for bohemian and eclectic decors.

Just in! Gold Velvet Hollywood Regency settee. This great find is such a cute compact size.  There are some fabric issues but it is usable and structural condition is good. It has been cleaned and sanitized.  If you are looking to customize this it would make a great restoration and I would work up a full quote for the work and help you select and obtain your choice of fabrics.  Customizing is so much fun and you get a fine vintage piece made new in a color you want.  We work together to accomplish this then I ship/deliver a fully reworked piece.  Priced as is, reach out if you want me to get a price on the upholstery work!

The skirt can be removed. 👌

Also just in: mahogany accent or lamp table.  Beautiful piece in excellent condition.  Great for mission and arts/crafts style.  Will mix with mcm just fine. Very nicely made.  Age and maker are unknown. Wood is gorgeous.  High enough to hold a lamp next to your couch or a chair.

On the road again.

Thanks everyone who was been keeping me busy!  I have had no luck with job applications so working this full time and that’s a good thing as I have 2 items waiting for shippers.  We are on the way to Pittsburgh for the weekend and hoping to hit some thrifts as I always find good stuff there!   Fingers crossed!  I will do my best to assist shoppers over the weekend as needed.  Last weekend I arranged a shipper while I was hanging at a music festival so I am good at multitasking.

I just swapped out my booth space this week!  Most of my glass is gone bacause I had no room for a shelf with the day bed in there.  Stop by if you are local!  I am currently offering 20% off with a college ID for the month of August.  KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY students welcome!  I have great college dorm and apartment gear.  Daybed is priced at $150 (less discount with your ID) and it is ready to use.  Not perfect, but I put new foam in the cushion, washed the cover and sanitized the bolster.  Also included is an atomic cover you can toss over if you like.  Perfect for extra seating and doubles as a guest bed.  Priced to move!  Nothing in my space is priced over $80 right now!  I have some great wall art too!  Why buy new stuff when you can start your vintage collection young!? Here is a few shots of the revamped space!  Hours are 10-6 WED THROUGH SUN. Also note I deliver furniture!!! I would gladly deliver anything to the area colleges so if you have a child or grandchild going to school nearby and want to arrange a gift of furniture, reach out!  I can flex on my pricing if you buy direct.  

This mammoth mirror shadow box is mint and so cool! I left some items on the shelves so you can see how neat it is.  It is heavy so you’ll want to anchor into the studs. I think I priced it at $80.  It is worth much more!

NEW ITEM

I have not listed this yet as I want see if I can replace the brass ferrules, many are missing.  It is a gorgeous 2 pc sectional in awesome cobalt vinyl.  Comfy and in really good condition.  You can arrange it in a corner or like a couch.  If interested reach out.  I will deal with the ferrules next week.  I found some but need to measure.  They seem to be $10 or so a piece and I will need 8.  I think it is worth investing in to bring it back to it’s glory.  Here is a peek.

Thanks for your support!  I have some exciting news to share! One of my restorations will be featured in the November issue of Berks County Living Magazine along with 4 other local Etsy sellers.  This is really great for me as my goal this year was to work with more regional clients.  Can’t wait to see what the writer does!  Have a great weekend!
