I know a lot of you may already know I am obsessed with furniture. Some people love shoes or clothes, I love furniture (and fabric, but that is beside the point!). I have a love affair with furniture especially. I consider myself a treasure hunter and I love to search for THE PERFECT furniture pieces for my home. I have refinished a lot of furniture, and even reupholstered a few furniture pieces. Choosing the right furniture, or customizing it to your space is ESSENTIAL in having a home that feels like YOURS. So, I’d like to announce a brand new series that will take place EVERY FRIDAY here at All Things Thrifty. Here’s the gist: EVERY FRIDAY you will get to see some FREAKIN’ FABULOUS FURNITURE where you will find furniture that I refinish myself, along with the occasional feature of someone else’s furniture. (so yes, I could feature YOU if you have something to submit). I am excited to showcase some amazing stuff out there, and I might even showcase some of the furniture on my “retail wish list.” Over the last three years of interior decorating, I have realized: The furniture that you have in your home defines your style and definitely helps to BRIGHTEN and LIVEN it. I love furniture, and I cannot wait to show you my FIRST FREAKIN’ FABULOUS FURNITURE post!
My friends Dani and Ashton asked me to refinish their intricate entry way sofa table. They had inherited the furniture from a relative, and they were chunky, intricate, and AWESOME (the furniture, not the relative, he, he)! Not only did they recieve this amazing sofa table, but they also got the matching coffee table and side tables too! Lucky freakin’ ducks. I loved the intricate carvings, and for some, the tables might have been perfect without refinishing them. However, for Dani and Ashton’s home, leaving them this wood color would have been a BIG mistake.
As you can see, the furniture turned out GREAT! I wish I had this in MY HOUSE!!Just take a gander at all those beautiful intricate details!
Want another look at the before picture? And the After photo…just to remind you of how stinkin’ SAWEEEET it turned out!?!? NO PROBLEM!
I’m telling ya, I love before and after photos. I’m a little OBSESSED! As a part of my FREAKIN’ FABULOUS FURNITURE series, I am accepting submissions for features. I will be featuring my own transformations as well as an occasional feature of others. So, if you have a FREAKIN’ FABULOUS piece of FURNITURE, send me a GOOD photo to allthingsthrifty at gmail dot com.
