Broyhill set reupholstered, BIG SCREEN premier, etsy sale and more!

Things are moving fast! Only one Heywood dresser left and that is the low one with mirror. See details in my ebay shop or etsy. You want it? You got it! Message me and we can make arrangements!

The Broyhill set just received it’s makeover so my AS IS price has been adjusted to reflect my efforts. The wood has not been refinished but I have oiled and tended to it. There are areas where color is uneven and some light signs of wear. Generally, the whole set is decent. I removed all the old upholstery, replaced the foam and batting with new and used a beautiful gold linen velvet fabric which is very high end and lovely. I scored a good deal of 5 yards of it but it is probably $100 a yard fabric. I decided to dress it up in gold because it looks so great with the walnut and was thinking it would be a great touch for the holidays! Get your home holiday ready! You can see the set in my retail space at Fleetwood Antique Mall, 14129 Kutztown Rd, Fleetwood, PA 19522 Wed-Sun 10-6. They take cash or credit. Please be prepared to haul. They will help you load. If you really want it and cannot haul, you will need to contact me and buy direct so I can get it to you. Here is a look and do not forget I have a great Saga line credenza which will soon be redone up top. As soon as I start working on it the AS IS price will disappear. Your DIY time is running out! I am determined to work my way through this stuff!

Here’s a look at the revamped space. I hung the mirror shadow box and if one of you people do not take that thing home you are seriously missing out on the most fab mirror ever! It looks great over a couch or even on a wall with the dining table. Mirrors are a great illusion to open up your space. This one is cool because it is loaded with little shelves and you can display all your kitschy little treasures. I’d fill it with my christmas pixie elves!

Fabulous Sonneman style eyeball arc lamp just added! Priced at $200. Cement base wrapped with aluminum cover. Socket just rewired and checked by my husband. Cool CFL bulb. I can’t plug this in because my plug is up high but it works fine. PLEASE NOTE! The pole breaks down for transit AND it will come off the base. DO NOT lift by the pole! Please remove from base and then break down the pole and fold. It is a super lamp! Just love it and it is a smaller size so not crazy room hogging like some of them. Perfect over a seating area for reading.

MAD MOD WORLD VINTAGE ON THE SCREEN

I sold a dark green victorian settee earlier this year that is currently on the the set of TELL ME A STORY on CBS ALL ACCESS. The show premiered on halloween night and I did not spot the couch yet although I suspect it is in Kim Cattrall’s living room. Episode two is up tomorrow so I will try to screen shot if I find it! The show is dark but so far I am liking it!

I recently sold a 50s industrial tool cart to the set of a movie filming in Philadelphia called 17 BRIDGES. Look for that next summer! It will be used in a kitchen and will be transformed into a counter with another Lyons piece next to it. Can’t wait to see how they work this cool industrial kitchen!!!

This fabric is hard to photograph and capture it precisely.  It was overcast in these shots.  In full sun, it appears much lighter than showing here.  I guess this will be more true to an interior lighting situation.  It is a great shade and a stunning choice!

SUMMER NOTES.  

I have a few trips planned this summer that I know I will be totally off the grid for most or some of that period.  I will try to give fair warning and put updates in my shop during those times.  There is a trip to the Adirondacks coming up soon ending with a weekend at our beloved moe.down music festival, and later this summer, a weekend in the Catskills.  We will be traveling and living in our VW Vanagon and are very much looking forward to connecting with nature and each other.  I will definitely post some pics!  

Weaving update.  Chair 3 is almost complete.  Today got away from me and tomorrow I have to work, but hopefully Friday it will be done and I can start on chair #4.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Weaving progress, research and Broyhill Brasilia.

Greetings!  Wanted to send a few updates.  The weaving project is coming along.  I have 2 chairs ready, 2 more to go!

I purchased an early 70s catalog from importer Otto Gerdau of NY.  Success!  My chairs are in there!  

IMG_5825.JPG

Of course, no reference to manufacturer/design connection but I am convinced there is no correlation to Gio Ponti.  They are made in Italy, hand woven, of course.  There are many furniture pieces in this catalog and I already found a few on the web attributed to folks who probably had nothing to do with them.  I am happy to add this great reference to my library! 

New acquisitions!  I just picked up a pretty set of T back style Broyhill Brasilia dining chairs.  They are currently being rehabbed by my friend, who is out of work and looking for side jobs.  I will be recovering the seats shortly, thinking a cobalt blue tweed but I have options.  Reach out if you are looking for a set of 4 and I can custom cover for you.   

Picked up some plaid coolers too!  I have lots of camping items to list!

Hope everyone has a good week!  Hopefully I will finish the 3rd chair this week!  I have been binge watching Netflix series as I weave. Ha.
