Reuse can be interpreted in many different ways. For me, I love antiques and thus ultimately reusing products that were previously owned, saving them from waste and destruction.
I took the girls this weekend to the big city, Chicago. We ventured out to Vintage Pine. According to their website, “Vintage Pine is Chicago’s premier source for antique and custom furniture from the English and French countryside.”
Angela was looking for an arrangement to flank an antique frame that we updated with a mirror. A reused item that is gorgeous over her antique buffet.
These items are cherished, valued and continue to be used for many years to come. Updating seat pads and sprucing up the furniture can make the old new again.
Mixing the old furniture with a modern lamp makes my love for antiques with a modern sensibility come to life.
