Treasures

Thrift store treasures…..are items that you see in a used furniture store, antique store, vintage store, garage sales or along the roadside.  If you see potential in the piece and have a use for it in your design….this makes it a treasure.   Sure the piece may need a bit of work but that is the fun part.

Finding an old chair which has the right frame and style….grab it!  Make your deal and have fun with it.  I am suggesting that you don’t just throw any old fabric on it and paint the frame yourself (only if you can do it perfectly), have it done properly.  Beautiful fabric and a professional upholstery re-do, voila, you have the perfect chair for your home.  The best thing too….is NO ONE else has this chair, it’s a one of a kind.

Just be patient and have a bit of a vision and you can do it.

Here are a few examples of some treasures re-wound.  If you have any questions, please email me at sandra@sandrabunndesigns.com or call me.
