Today I’m going to show you how I used a vintage chair as an end table and 3 different ways to style it.
This post is especially handy for new homeowners that are probably overwhelmed from purchasing their first home, and are now seeking chic and inexpensive ways to add style and furniture to their new space.
I remember when I purchased my first home. At first I was so excited but then I became so scared and stressed about money that I felt the only way I could save, was to redo all the furniture that I was going to need for my new home. With that said, that’s exactly what I did. However, I obviously, couldn’t refinish/remake all furniture pieces, but for majority of them, I did! And let me tell you, it’s a lot more satisfying when people come over and comment on how gorgeous your end tables are and you can actually take full correct for it!Anyways, lets get started! First, I purchased this rustic chair from a yard sale for $4. I already liked the vintage/aged look it had so I just sanded some of the loose paint and dirt off before bringing it inside. Next, I just stacked some books to create a layer for this flat surface. I then added a picture frame, a faux plant a décor piece and then played around with this design until I came up with something that worked for this space. As for decorating, I usually follow a 3-item rule but it literally depends on each space! And lastly, after looking at my photos, I decided to add a wire basket, some more books and another plant under the chair just to fill the bottom space.
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this idea and thanks for stopping by my little blog today!
