My Secondhand Finds

I don’t believe I’ve shared with you any finds in quite some time and they are starting to add up so I’ll share just a few as to not overwhelm you (or make me look like I need a shopping intervention)!

Forgive me if I’ve shared my chair before  – although, I don’t think I have.  I bought this sturdy chair last summer for my computer desk (I gave up on the Mod one) and just loved it.  I went to a sample sale a few weeks ago and bought fabric for $1 each.  I used one of the fabrics (normally priced at $155 per yard – that was on the tag) to reupholster my chair.  The fabric is a charcoal  tweed with some wool made by  Pollack.  Here is how it came out…

Next, I came across some little finds, but nevertheless just made me happy!  I’m trying to decide which photo to put in the frame (the one in the photo is stock).  But I did find a spot for it – right on my nightstand.

You may feel that my next find is a little more on the pricey side (comparing to the one’s above).  BUT, I could not walk away from this one (actually, I did and then ran back the next morning).  It’s as close to brand new as can be and when I found out that this velvety chair normally retails online for almost $400, the asking price seemed reasonable.

I’ve spent a few Saturday mornings sitting here with kids as I read a story book.  Oh, and get this, the seat cushion lifts up and has built in storage!

BTW, I’m working on my newsletter publication and plan to send it out in the next few weeks.  If  you’ve never received one and are interested, sign up with your email address (top right side of the site).  Have a great evening!
