Etsy Round-Up – Refurbished Furniture

Normally, I don’t think it is a good idea to refurbish vintage furniture.  Oh sure, I am all for restoration, for matching up a piece with fabric from the correct era, but I have seen some hideous Victorian couches redone with 80’s fabric that have put me off of refurbishing. And sure, experimentation with retro-mod is great, as long as I don’t have to have it in my living room.

But Jeanne Connolly does a good job.

Her “green” furniture store, Vintage Renewal,  has got some excellent pieces that make me drool.  I am a huge fan of her “toddler” furniture.  Especially the Retro Pony Chair:pony-toddler-chair

Absolutely adorable.  I love those pom-poms.

Now, I am not completely sold on all her combinations, but everyone has different tastes, right? Some are too shabby chic for me, and others are just wacky. But some of her stuff hits me just right. Which for Hubs means, right in the wallet.

Shop Jeanne’s designs at her Etsy store and her website. Buy green, buy vintage, buy thrifted!
