What's up in the Attic?

I've been busy hunting garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, thrift stores and Manhattan's famous fabric district, and I've snatched up and re-created so many fabulous antique and vintage treasures for you!

As always, each antique or vintage piece I find is completely "re-created" by me. I search for vintage and antique furniture with character, grace and special lines, and then I visualize how to "re-create" it for today's fast-paced world, while maintaining its special old-world charm from yesteryear.

All of my pieces are one-of-a-kind. Most every chair or sofa I acquire is completely re-upholstered by me with some of the finest antique- and vintage-look fabrics. Each wooden dresser, table, desk or chair is lovingly restored using a multi-step process which includes sanding, conditioning, priming, painting or staining, and sealing with hand-applied wax or a polycrylic specially formulated to protect painted furniture. I also add embellishment to many of my pieces -- decoupaging fabric for added color, warmth and charm, or rhinestones on little girl's furniture for extra princess dazzle!
