Favorite Finds: Big Daddy’s Antiques

I’ve been digging on Big Daddy’s Antiques for years.

A great place for unique finds and rehab inspiration; it has been really wonderful to watch them grow so quickly.

They even have a new branch of stores called Georgia Brown (Big Daddy’s daughter!) cropping up. (Look for a Beverly Hills location soon.)

Here are my favorite finds from a trip to BD’s this weekend:

Everyone knows I can’t resist a wingback!

Loved the finish on this.

Sold, but this fabric is divine.

Wasn’t sure if I was allowed to sit here, but I like breaking the rules.

Rad Finds at Raj

Loving the boho chic vibe right now, and Raj on 3rd has all kinds of items that you can use to build that look in your home. Some are expensive (they have lots of gorgeous inlay items) and some are more suited to a rehabber’s budget.
Highlights from my recent trip:

Love this chair. The sales girl said it came from Iran.

I'm all about lanterns. And those of you that have been reading for a while now know about my obsession with anything orange or grey!

These stools are awesome! They also have some really cool poufs made with similar fabrics.

Last but not least, the inlay! I love, love, love the white on white coffee table.

Spring Break!

Ahhhh, Spring Break!

Apparently in grad school, it is that time of year when you catch up on work, do papers, and work on the extra assignments professors felt were necessary because you’re not actually making the trek to school.

That’s okay, though, because I will save approximately 7.5 hours next week in just drive time (I live/ work in West Hollywood and school is in Malibu, it’d be a trade off no matter where I lived.)

That being said, with my 7.5 hours of free time next week, I am planning on going a little rehab crazy.

Here’s the “To Do” list:

I have a side table I’ve been dying to start.

I have another bamboo side table that needs a sanding and some paint (bought it at Fairfax this past weekend!)

A set of chairs that need to be upholstered (I can’t seem to find the “right” fabric.)

And I want to put finishing touches on and make a cushion for a doll highchair that has been sitting neglected.

Add in that I want to go through my closet and donate a ton of clothes/ shoes, and it looks like this week is gonna be busier than normal! Think I can get all this stuff done?!

 

Rose Bowl Flea Market: Favorite Finds

Here are a few of my favorites from the last Rose Bowl Flea:

Love this set by Uber Chic home… I brought a friend to check it out, and she ended up ordering a custom piece for her closet. I think I may have to get one for my place!

This color.

Love the color of the legs, love that this table is tiny. For some reason, I was loving everything green this month!

IMG_4322

Love these coffee tables! They had a ton and were right at the entrance… love the grape sweat crates.

I like anything reminiscent of marquee lights!

These sweet little tables had interchangeable tops. Lots of vendors had some, so you’ll surely find commercial versions out soon!

Funky and Fun Details

I like the idea of a little something shiny.

My dad always called me a barracuda because I like the idea of a little something shiny.

Love the funky shape of this chair!

I'm obsessed with these furry stools from Anthropologie. They ring in at $348 each (eeps!) But you could get a similar look by throwing a sheep skin over a small stool.

The boline chair from Anthropologie reminds me of a throne. Fit for a boho queen.

Just for Fun… Some Easy Project Ideas

I am loving these looks right now… apparently I am ALL about the COLOR this week! 🙂
Not sure where the photos came from, I’ve just shimmied them into the “inspiration” folder on my desktop over the past week.

Love, love, love the look of this desk. The blue paint could really brighten up an old desk!

Loving this faux bamboo look that is taking over right now! This would be perfect in hot pink!

This drum table was listed at $429 on One Kings Lane. Love it! If you found something similar at a flea market/ thrift store, the look would be easy to recreate with a can of spray paint.

Notice a common theme (other than color) going on here? All of these items would make for pretty easy projects (the chair would probably be the hardest one because you’d have to re-upholser depending on what you find.) A coat of paint and you’re pretty much done. Perfect ideas for time pressed rehabbers who want to breathe new life into their space!
