So, this post comes to you from my friend Erika who is in the process of rejuvenating an old house into a wonderful and cozy home. She is super talented with a keen eye for detail and this is her latest vintage find that just needed that ‘little something extra’ added to it to turn it from drab to fab! I wanted to share this will all of you so you can see the possibilities are endless and the results are simply stunning!

The photo above is taken at the shop ‘For Home and Her’ where she found it. A lovely circa 1950s sideboard. Now – I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t stop drooling over everything else in the photo as well! Gorgeous little shelf and how about that wall art! If you ever find yourself traversing around in Quincy, Illinois – add this to your list of shops to explore.

Check out the result of Erika’s vision to spice up this lovely sideboard. Fabulous, no?!? I am ‘in love’ with it! Topped off with some leather and nailhead trim takes it from vintage (outdated) to vintage (updated). What a wonderful job the craftsmen did and it looks simply stunning in Erika’s home.

So, as you can see, all you need is a piece of furniture along with a vision and you can turn that vision into reality.

Now that is what I call Vintage Shabby Glamour!
