Pop Up Shop Season…

We are super excited that it’s the first pop up shop of 2017 this Saturday, 15th April. We have been sourcing and buying lots of great vintage homewares and working on a few furniture transformation projects which we are pulling together this week.

Setting up the shop space and styling all the vintage pieces is one of things I enjoy most and there is a stand out piece that I have been working on and want to share with you now.

I promised some before and after shots of some of our recent purchases to show how you can transform old unloved pieces of furniture into a stylish statement for the home, so here goes….

Do you remember this old bureau……

Well it is now an absolute favourite of mine!

After a good sanding, lots of primer, paint and even some decoupage and distressing I hope you agree it looks like a completely different piece of furniture.

This handpainted, unique bureau will be available to buy this weekend alongside other great vintage finds.

You will find our pop up vintage shop at Woodbank, High St, New Galloway and we will be open 10 -4. If you can’t make this one don’t worry we have 7 more planned for this year so you can catch us in May, later in the year or check out our Etsy store http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/backroomvintagestore

Have you had a go at upcycling or transforming a piece of furniture that had seen better days? If so or you have any comments on our bureau please comment below…
