Friday’s Treasure Hunt

13 Aug

Yesterday I visited two of my favorite antique furniture shops. There was so much to take in, as both shops had load of new pieces.

I was hunting for a new desk for my office.  I saw two that I absolutely loved.

This black and gold vintage Lane Furniture desk with a Merlot colored leather top!  Sorry I didn’t take a picture of the top 😦

Look at this beauty! It in near perfect original condition.

This cute built-in side shelf desk

I'm not feeling that pink panther paint color

She would need a good sanding and a fresh coat of stain.  I really love the styling of the front molding.

I didn’t buy either…yet.  I’m still trying to decide which one I like more.  The black and gold desk costs about twice as much as the pink desk, but the owner said he would work with me on the price. 🙂

But, I did buy were these club chairs with cane backs.

These twins need some serious TLC.  I think I can pulled something off like Mandi over at Vintage Revivals accomplished with a similar chair.

After!

Mandi’s before and after were featured on Apartment Therapy.  What do you think?  I think I’m going to stain my chairs a dark mahogany, or black.

Have a great weekend!

    I absolutely love shopes like the one you featured! The chairs you bought are gorgeous. I have always wanted to by older chairs and fix them up.

    I have tackled a vintage armoir and dresser, but that was just sanding and restaining. I can’t wait to see what you do with the chairs.

    Cheers,

    I realize the price is more, but I vote for the black and gold beauty. That is one stylish desk!
