My New Chair & Consignment Shopping

There are some really amazing places around here to do some thrifty shopping and one of my favorites is a place called Furniture Affair.  (It is at 7th st. & Bell rd for those living around here. ) They have a fabulous place with upscale furniture and accessories.  I think just about any style can be found here from Farmhouse to modern.  I thought you might like to go on a shopping trip with me and see what they have.  Every piece of furniture or accessory in the store is pristine.  They have a mix of new and consignment.

This was the display as I walked in the door.  I LOVE those two hot pink chairs.  They are so pretty and for $99 for the armless one and $129 for the one with arms, pretty great prices.  That cute little gray tuxedo loveseat is only $299.

If you are into farmhouse, that hutch is huge and gorgeous.  I didn't get the price on that.

 They have tons of pillows and accessories too.

 For the person that loves modern, then you would really like that chest.  It is only $149.

 They have a lot of art too.  I found several fabulous horse prints and somehow don't have a picture of them.

 This shows how big this place is.  So much to choose from.

 I absolutely love that big tufted ottoman.  It was only $199.

 How about those crazy bar stools.  Fun don't you think.

 There is so much to choose from and the prices are really good.

Now want to see what I found?  My daughter and I were shopping right before Christmas and she found a desk chair she wanted for her new house and I saw this really pretty chair that I liked.  She bought it for me as a Christmas gift.  It was $99.

You all know that I am working on plans for redoing the family room, so this is my jumping off  start of the new design.  I plan on painting my console in a driftwood finish, new shutters for the windows and redoing the brown chair next to the console.  I also have a new sofa coming and then some new recliners a little later on.

First things first - I am going to do a little painting on the frame of the chair to give it a little bit darker finish.  I will show you as I get it done.

This room will have to come together piece by piece, but I think it will be fabulous when done.  I just have to be patient and save up.

Hope you had fun shopping, that place is amazing.

Don't forget - Inspire Me Tuesday goes live tomorrow at 3PM.  Be sure to link up all your latest projects, we love seeing it all.

  1. How fun Marty. I enjoy going through places like this too. We have one shop around here that reminds me of this- they do a great job of mixing all the consignment pieces together as though they were brought in that way. Sounds like you’ve got a nice plan in place for the family room! The new chair is a beauty!

  2. that would be such a fun place to shop, I saw several things that looked great!

  3. It is so fun to shop consignment stores and thrift stores. I love the thrill of the hunt.

  4. Marty, you may have already shared pictures of your family room and if so, direct me where to see it but if not, I'd love for you to share and walk us through it in stages as you do it. I'd like to see a picture of it currently and then see your "thought bubbles" (I'm a retired elementary educator/principal so forgive me ;) of what you envision it to look like when finished. I like to see how decorators vision things kind of like taking a rough diamond and making it into a polished stone. I hope this makes sense.

    1. Thanks, I like to see how rooms come together too. Here is the link to my Idea Board Makeover and it also shows how the room looked at the beginning.

      Then you can check out this post to see where we are now.

      Next week I will show you how it looks with the new chair and show a picture of the new sofa I am getting.

      Thanks so much for following along, this is a piece at a time makeover.

  5. The chair is a great find and it will look terrific in your re-modeled family room. Wish we had one of those stores around my area. I am sure they have plenty in the greater Los Angeles area.

    Have a great week.

  6. Wow what a great place. I wish we had a shop like this by me. There are some gorgeous pieces there.
    Have a great new week Marty.

  7. Looks like a fun place to shop. Your chair is beautiful... great lines.

  8. I'm catching up on blog reading, Marty! I love that chair! There is a consignment shop within a block of me, but it seems terribly over priced to me.

  9. What a great place, and the prices are amazing!
