This craft room redesign project has been crazy fun so far, much less daunting then expected, thanks to all of your help here and on facebook. I’ve been scouring craigslist, ebay, local thrift shops, goodwill, and a nearby stored called TINI (stands for This is Not Ikea) for vintage and inexpensive stuff to outfit the new room. One piece I actually found just sitting on the street. Here’s what I’ve found so far!
Any advice on what to do with it all? Leave me a comment, you could win some of Jacinda’s pom pom trim in the color of you choice! Check out some more finds and questions after the jump…
Advice for my Thrifty Finds?
This pink typewriter table is totally busted but I kind of love it like this.
Should I repaint it? This is going to be Scarlet’s crafting table, but I can also use it to throw a sewing machine on when I need to get it away from the wall, since it’s on wheels…
This coffee table is amazing, but it’s brass finished.
I think I might have to repaint? But what color to pop off the new flooring I just installed of yellow Flor tiles? The coolest part about it is that it swivels to save space when we need to fold the couch out into a bed! And it was $44 on ebay!
Check out this chair I found sitting on the street. It definitely needs some work but it was FREE.
Because it was free, does that mean I can pay to have it recovered or should I do it myself?
Looks like a pretty difficult upholstery project. Maybe just a slipcover? Thoughts?
Love this vintage file holder organizer thing. I wanted to hang it on the wall but it weighs a ton. Oh, and it doesn’t actually fit a file folder, it’s a bit too small. What to do with it? Should I paint it or does it have shabby charm?
That’s what I’ve found so far! Still trying to hunt down a vintage bar cart or garden cart to hold my machines on, and some sort of tv stand so guests will have some entertainment. I refuse to buy new furniture. Can’t wait for your tips!
