I have always wanted a mirrored furniture. One day I saw this beautiful desk/vanity at a store. I fell in love, it is was so beautiful. But no way I want it to spend high tag price. No this time.
At agarage sale i got this vanity. It was sturdy and all it needed was love. I got plenty of that. It was sanded it, painted it and added craft mirrors.
and look at it now. I am in love.
I have bought this white frame at garage sale a few months ago with the purpose of making a jewelry display. It was time to start working on it. I have painted it and these are the images of the procedures. I am very pleased with the result.
I love my contemporary furniture. But I also like vintage decor. So, how to mix both style ? How to combine vintage with contemporary? These are the variables. The common denominator between the two of them is you, your ideas and the methods used as an unique factors.
Lets solve : Vintemporary
Modern contemporary + (Vintage x DIY)= Vintemporary
Vintemporary = ( Modern Contemporary + ( Vintage x DIY)
= ( Big Furniture Pieces + (Small Accessories/Decor x reupholster, re invent, re-use)
= sofa + (used mason jars x re purposed)
= sofa + table lamp
= the best of the past and your present
Another way to get a vintemporary style:
Ex. Upholstering a vintage chair with a contemporary fabric in bright colors or bold patterns… simply “vintemporary”.
The result of the formula reads: home decor is equal you. It is a combination of the best of your past and who you are at the present and what would be the reflection of your future.
What do you think? Could you put in practice Vintemporary styles. Do your homework and feel free to post a link of images that you consider pertaining to this topic. I would like to read your comments .
