Filling a Home - Flea Finds




I am happy to say that all of the things you see above have been bought and paid for by yours truly.  And this...


 ...is next.  I am going to have a look at it on Saturday.   I've decided that if it's in as good of shape as it appears to be, I'm buying it.  I know this is not something everyone gets/likes, but I think it could be really special when all said and done.  Plus, as I've gotten older the more I subscribe to the mentality below...


Amen to that.

I also came across this picture 


...that made me even more positive about my initial instinct.  No guts...NO GLORY!

Go for it! It's a wonderful sofa. Design is about what the individual likes. You have a wonderful home with loads of character.
Au revoir

That picture is the first thing I thought of when I saw that couch. Those words are so true! I made a mistake with a vintage couch once and just resold it. I lost a bit of money but no big deal. Now I know!

YES! Go for it. Hope it's comfy. And love all your flea finds--especially that cocktail table!

Sometimes I think it would be so fun to be starting from scratch again.

Ha, I also thought of this photo when you first posted that sofa....as long as the rest of the room is updated and fresh, not granny, I think it will be beautiful! Good luck :)

Every time I have played it "safe" I end up changing stuff. Each time I "GO BIG" is when I love it and have gotten the most reward. Trust your gut and your eye!
