Thrift Store Finds . . .

I found these lamps at a random thrift store for $6.50 which I think was a total steal!  I actually left them the first time around because they were a bit heavy and I wasn’t 100% sold, but one night without them made me change my mind.  These will be refinished (maybe painting the shade??) and sold to a friend who has already made their intentions known!

I also saw this a few days ago, and know I would’ve taken it with me if only I had a small storage unit!!

I highly doubt it’s an authentic Duncan Phyfe, but it certainly appears to be well-made, and a trip to the upholsterer would really set this OFF!  This is definitely the type of sofa I’d use in my office if I had a brick & mortar shop (or even a separate dwelling next to my house)–love!

    I have been looking for that sofa. Well, I guess I’ll have to keep looking…

    Great finds! I recently took a lamp similar to the ones you showed from my Grandparents house. I can’t wait to pain it!

    I love the shape of that sofa. What type of fabric would you have used if you’d bought and had it reupholstered?

    Love the lamps! I’m thinking maybe paint them one solid color and cover the shades with a funky pattern. Keep us posted on the transformation!

    That sofa is really nice, I can definitely envision it in a lighter material. The shape is a true classic.

    Can’t wait to see what you make out of the lamps =)

    Karen–I have been thinking about that, and am working on sharing the fabric(s) that I would use to reupholster the sofa.

    Alison–I do! Looking back at my blog today, I was thinking that maybe I should’ve just bit the bullet and bought it . . .

    You have a great eye for lamps my friend and that sofa would be incredible. I think you need to rent a storage unit!
