Vintage Finds

As most of you know, Tyler and I are a little obsessed with all things vintage. So naturally our house will be filled with our vintage finds. Our lastest find was a Broyhill Brasilia dining set, a popular mid-century modern design. We  purchased 10 chairs total, 4 armchairs and 6 side chairs, as well as a large table with 3 leaves, that extends to seat 10, and a china hutch to match. Needless to say, we were in L.O.V.E.

Here is a picture of what the table and chairs look like, (These are not ours, because sadly ours went into hiding.. aka storage)

Here is a picture of our china hutch (sorry not the best picture)

The Table and the china hutch need some refinishing: for example the white you see on the china cabinet will have to be stripped off and restained, same goes for our dining table.

But… can you imagine my new/old Franciscan Silver Pine China set I found, displayed in this case during winter, I can, and I Cant Wait.

Here is a small place setting of my 40 piece set that I found at an estate sale for an amazing price.

Now I have been contemplating what light fixture would look best above this spectacular piece of furniture, and I have decided on..

Maybe a George Nelson, or George Nelson inspired Saucer Light:

So there is a run down of our current dining room design ideas. Check back soon (well I say that) for an house update. The Stone is currently being layed, and our fireplace is taking shape!

  1. How much as the construction cost so far? Shipping containers are something my husband and I have looked at for a few years now. We have fully renovated a home from the 60’s (gutted down to the studs and concrete floors).

    We are still interested in have a place built on land though. I have had a hard time finding where to purchase shipping containers.

    Do you have a breakdown of the costs??
