Sometimes you just can't DIY. Yeah...I don't think I'm crafty enough to conjure up enough magical potions to presto change-o some old wood pallets into a sturdy and stylish sofa. Nope. Not even gonna try. So if I can't DIY my other tactic is usually to buy vintage...aka used...aka salvaged. Or also... not perfect. Don't get me wrong, I love our jolly green giant and that I scored for only $150. But with two bouncing babies, a dog and a husband that won't take his boots off and falls asleep on it all the time... it is definitely showing some (ok A LOT) of age. The legs are popping off, the center is collapsing and some cushion covers are splitting. Yep. It's time to send the mile long davenport out to AmVets pasture.
So what does that mean????
Weeeeeee! And this mama does love a good shopping expedition. New doesn't have to mean without character. My love of vintage will never cease, but I think it's time I have something that I know will last more than a year... and perhaps also has a warranty ;) So here are a few of my vintage inspired finds that I searched all over googleland for. Basically I love anything Chesterfield inspired. Think lots of tufting, tight back, single seat cushion, exposed turned wood feet and rolled arms.....
