I find quality vintage furniture everywhere from the side of the road, to garage sales, to flea markets. I like to recycle and reuse furniture that big box stores are recreating and overpricing. I use only real, wood furniture made in the USA. I love the fact that it all has a little part of history to it. A big part of recreating a piece is imagining the room that it was once placed in.
I have a typical process that I usually do with each and every piece. All furniture is striped of the old finish, even the metal pieces. I know most upcylers just sand and paint over it. I feel as though you just can't get that perfect look and finish unless you get to that original wood. Many times once I see the wood I can't bring myself to paint it. I will change the whole design. I love to mix stain with paint and paint some pieces that way. Depending on the condition and style of the piece, sometimes it just needs a good cleaning and waxing. I love to take the new pieces that I create and pair them with modern accents and fun colors to give it that one of a kind look! I also refurbish old lamps and lighting fixtures. I put in new wiring, and paint new lampshades to create a vintage/modern twist. I also recreate various mirrors and old picture frames.
