That very same day I came across this almost identical cabinet selling for $6,000. 6K, I kid you not. So yeah, I scored. And I actually like mine better. Clearly I should just sell it at a massive profit and forget about the bar cabinet idea altogether. But ohh no, nothing but the best for my clients.
Some pretty little antique chinoiserie accessories like these cloisenne ginger jars, and pair of foo dogs. These did not come home with me, but I may at some point circle back...
This sofa with honest mid-century lines is being re-upholstered to use in the waiting room of the birth center / midwifery office I'm helping to design right here in Silver Lake. She's not a beauty yet but just wait, just wait.
A couple of comfy chairs are getting completely re-done with fresh and sunny yellow velvet and will be turned into rocking chairs (like I did here) for the birthing rooms at the center.
I passed on this trio of bamboo chippendale barstools and I'm still kind of regretting it.
They're just so classic and cool at the same time! I love the natural bamboo but can also easily imagine them lacquered in some fun color, like so...
Right? I passed on them because I don't have an immediate project to put them to use for, and I don't have the space to store them. It's so obvious to me that one day I'll have to open a shop, just to give me the excuse and the space to indulge in all my thrifting, collecting and curating obsessions (also known as hoarding.)
I also passed on this pair of campaign dressers for the same reason, but they were hard to walk away from because you don't find them for cheap all that often. People know that campaign chests of all kinds are a a classy addition to almost any decor scheme.
That last incredible cobalt blue and gold lamp is an authentic Hollywood Regency beauty, and is a dead ringer for this one from Mary Mcdonald's new swanky lighting line channeling that era. See?

Who doesn't need a mercury glass toadstool? For $1.50, apparently I did.
And that's the latest thrifting round up! I promise to show you all of the furniture items once they've been re-done. Isn't that the best part? Nothing beats a good "before & after." Stay tuned.
