Painted & Stained Vintage Hutch

Several weeks back I picked up this hutch in my neighborhood. It was structurally fantastic, but had seen better days, cosmetically.

Our Take on the Brimfield Flea Market...

Hey there!
 
Even though I grew up just a little bit away from Brimfield it wasn't something I frequented as a child, or as an adult, for that matter. In fact, this past weekend was only the second time I have ever gone.
 
If you've never been we would completely encourage you to go. It's such a unique experience filled with awesome vintage and antique pieces and tons of curiosities.

Black Painted Chair & Where I Get My Inspiration From

One of the pieces we picked up on our trip to Rhode Island (you can read all about that here), was this classic wooden chair.
 
I had been looking for something similar to this for a little bit and the price, quality and style of this one fit the bill. For the record, I paid about $20 and it is a solid piece originally made in Gardner, Massachusetts. Whenever I find pieces from Garner they are always super well built.

Updated 70's Nighstand & Why You Should Buy These Old Pieces

You know what? I'm kind of in love with this piece.
 
Once I find furniture I typically move pretty quickly to get it redone and either put in my own home or listed for sale.
 
This table...I've had it since the beginning of tag sale season...last year! I think it waited more than long enough for its transformation.

Spring Touches & Contributor Post

Spring is one of my very favorite times of the year (and not just because I have an April birthday)! I love how the weather gets warmer, the days get longer (seriously, the getting dark at like 4:30 in the afternoon during the winter gets old really, really fast), and the light and bright colors of the season.
 
This year, I added just a few spring touches to our home. I'm trying to keep things neutral and uncluttered since I'm really looking to sell and will be listing very soon.
