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:

Sold, but this fabric is divine.

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

Talk about giving something old new life!

I can just imagine a pallet filled with fresh herbs out on my patio.

A friend was telling me her hubby is planning on building some for strawberries and hanging them on the fence because their dogs can’t resist the berries they grow each year.

Urban gardening at its finest!

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!
