Mixing old with new

Ok, I am a sucker for vintage and old furniture!  Who isn’t?  I love the idea of mixing old pieces of furniture within the same group.

One of my favorite pieces to mix and match are old chairs.  You pretty much can find vintage and older chairs anywhere!

  Yard sales, flea markets, antique stores, even your grandmother’s attic!

Don’t be afraid to add a little color!  I am a huge fan of the color green so I am loving these chairs!  It is amazing what a little paint can do to add character to an old piece of furniture.

Take a look at this adorable kitchen! 

This area welcomes family and friends.  The mix of chairs at the large table is warm and inviting.  Don’t be afraid to mix and match several different syltes and colors into one. 

Embrace the contrasting styles.  It adds liveliness and style to any room, especially the heart of the home, the Kitchen!!

The light pendants add extra charm to this area.  This is

definitely a table I would love to sit around!


when you run across an old chair that looks like it has seen better days, do not pass it up!  With a little hard work and imagination, anything can be brought back to life.
