This summer we’ve been finding a few new vintage items to add to our home. The first I have to share is this typewriter. I fell in love with an $80 one at a local second hand store. Sadly, it stayed there. A few days later my husband knew what he had found when he was at an estate sale in our neighborhood. $3 and he brought home a huge surprise for me!
On the way to the beach on our vacation my husband and I both saw this couch driving by. Without hesitation we turned around and bought it for $20. It had been in storage for years and has 8 pillow covers (I ditched the inserts) and needed a bit of wood repair. Thank goodness Paul used to own a furniture restoration business. What a deal!
Look at this beauty my man picked out as well. He has a great eye!
Our mid-century modern couch reupholstery progress is at a standstill by choice. We just need to add the buttons, but now that we’ve put it in the living room we’ve moved on to new projects.
& to leave you with a little teaser, we put an antique tub in our backyard. Here’s a picture of the beginning of the progress. Antique bricks from our old downtown….
