Today we’re excited to introduce and feature Erinn V. Maison who shares some of her amazing second-hand finds and tips for displaying pieces that are vintage and rich with historic character. “I love finding items at a Flea Market or garage sale,” says Erinn. “I buy a lot of great old chairs at the Goodwill as well and then recover and paint them. My own headboard I found on the side of the road, stuffed it in my SUV and brought it to my upholsterer who re-did it for me and I had it for close to 10 years now!”
Here are some of Erinn’s finds:
I bought this wingback chair at the Goodwill for $30, painted the frame and then recovered it in vintage fabric. It adds great character and style.
The vintage letters on this bookcase were bought on ETSY. I think that is a great source for cool, curated vintage items and crafts. (blue letters on bookcase)
The art on this wall is a mix, most items were torn out of old art and music books that I bought for cheat at a used bookstore. Frames are from Aaron Bros. (Wall of art) Others are just black and white or sepia toned family photos, which look like more artful than full-color.
This is my headboard that I found on the street and re-did in silk and added the nail heads. I love the scalloped shape! It’s been in 4 homes so far and looks great in each one.
Erinn says, “I think pieces with character and history add tremendous depth to a room.”
