Carefully selected second-hand furniture can add character to a collector’s home. If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at breathing new life into an old piece, check out these tips. Learn where to look for older pieces, how to find the best bargains, and what to avoid.
The majority of venues where you’ll make finds won’t accept credit cards or checks. It’s likely you’ll lose the piece by the time you’ve found an ATM and made your way back. Cash also imposes a mandatory budget, so you may think twice about impulse purchases.
Keep a Flexible Goal in Mind
It’s a good idea to have an actual picture of what you want before you start scouring shops and flea markets. However, finding an exact match is difficult. Instead, note what you like about your inspiration piece. Does it have clean angles or flowing lines? How does it make you feel? Your final score may not look like what you thought it would, but you’ll be satisfied with it because it meshes with your original concept.
