" shabby chic "
J'ai trouve ces sur Craig's list et Kijiji ( pour les Americaines - Kijiji est la meme chose que EBAY )
D'accord - nous allons commencer
And we will now officially revert to English for the rest of the post LOL ( just felt like showing off a little)
Here's a few items listed for sale this week from both sites
250.00 will get you the sofa - 2 chairs - the coffee table and 2 end tables
All you need is paint and some gorgeous fabric and this set could be a dream come true!
( we had that couch set in gold brocade when I was growing up and I HATED it with a passion - looking back I wish I had it now - these were built to last - and make the most beautiful pieces when refurbished with a bit of taste!!!
And don't look at it the way it is now - Here's how it could look with a little work -
Then there's this one - which I think was 500 for the couch and settee - just gorgeous right?
Why would anyone go to a big box store and by a generic looking couch made in China???
Both these chairs are listed at 300 ( and you could probably negotiate ) again don't look at them the way they are
they could easily resemble this gorgeous chair from Restoration Hardware - again with paint and fabric - not identical for sure - but they could still be stunning accent pieces
Some of you may remember when I transformed this
into this pretty set
Where there is French Provincial - there is potential - 99.9 % of the time - no matter how terrible it looks - which is why tonight I'll be busy working on this
Because the place this type of furniture does not belong is in a garage stuffed into a corner - forgotten about - or worse - a landfill..................
Have a great Thursday all - Come back tonight for the Bloglovin blog hop - it's a great way to meet new people!!!
