Local web sites offering used wares are all the latest craze right now and in my quest to stay an up-to-date kinda gal I’m doing my part to support them. What I love about the web pages is that they give me another option for finding old neglected furniture without even leaving my kitchen!
It’s a wonderful way to shop and savvy sellers are everywhere now. Included in this is the “on line auction”. A week long event that entices us all to bid on some of the coolest stuff I’ve ever seen.The majority of these ladies who run the auctions will even deliver your treasure for a small fee like Melissa from OLDEN DAZE!
It just doesn’t get any easier than that does it?
So with that being said this week’s post is all about the online auction and shopping experience, and even though I don’t have the original “before” photos, I’m hoping you will appreciate the “after” because every piece you’re about to see came from that savvy chick – the on line seller….
Nursing a broken arm and stained cushions this GORGEOUS settee was in dire need of a face lift. Screaming “FRENCH APARTMENT!!” she now only needs a new owner to love her. Super strong now and comfy, comfy, comfy it would even work as a bench for a dining room table.
Do you remember the first couple of pieces that I bought on line? They were a super tall tallboy that I painted celery green and another turquoise colored hutch. These next 2 items are the last from that purchase. Originally I had thought that I would make feet for them but then realized they would not be tall enough. So here they are as wall mirrors. Each as big as a window they’re beautiful!
A close up to show you the slight distressing.
This last piece came from the OLDEN DAZE online auction. I loved it as soon as I saw it and really had to hold myself back when it came to selling it or keeping it.
Thankfully there are only so many walls in this old house so it’s off to market with me tomorrow.
The frame is an old table top that had seen better days. I think they marry very well and are a match made in potato heaven…
Thanks for reading!
