Furniture for the new house

Good morning! 

I'm very excited to show you my latest purchase for the house.  The chair is from The Elegant Garage Sale on Bayview.  This store is a gold mine if you have an open mind.  Most of the pieces you'll find there will have to be refurbished.  Just like my new chair.  Picture it spray painted black, charcoal or white with a down filled seat and down filled pillow for the back in a neutral linen.  I'm not sure if I want any pattern.  I'm going in search of fabric over the next few weeks.  I'm so excited for this project!  The seat cushion and pillow will be sourced out. I will strip it and spray paint it on my holidays once we move into the house.  Yeah a new project! 

Question, when you bring home an item like this does your husband/partner see the potential or it something you usually have to convince him of?  Ryan's not as excited as I am.  I hope the finished product will change his mind. 


  1. Great find! I would have brought it home too! Kevin doesn't see the initial attraction, but gets it after :) xx

  2. Love it! I've never been to the store - how are the prices?

  3. The store is a lot of fun to browse. There is everything from costume Jewellery, dining tables, dressers, lamps, books, etc. I'm keeping my eye on a dining table for $350!! I need Ryan to agree to refinish it at some point. We'll see if he wants such a big task.

  4. Beautiful piece. I love collecting various different pieces for my home.

    Great blog! I am so glad I found it.

    Have a good weekend,
