I stumbled across a few photos of this amazing office space and immediately had to know more about how these fantastic vintage pieces came to rest so delightfully in one space. This office is occupied by vintage addict & shopkeeper, Becke, of The Vintage Cabin.
We live in a 165+ year old house that has, what used to be, a summer kitchen at the back and we thought it would be an ideal space for our office/studio. When we bought the house, the great built-in shelving unit was already there so we just fixed it up, painted it and worked it into our decor.
We also knew we needed a nice, long desk so we just had some spalted maple planed at the lumber store, added 6 ikea legs and voila! I can’t really say I often plan ahead when I decorate, I usually just move things around…and around until they work and then add in a few details afterwards.
I think the space finally came to fruition with the introduction of the old tin store sign and the orange and turquoise thrift store chairs. The arms & legs were really beaten up and they were FILTHY. I brought them home, took them all apart, gave them a bath and sprayed out the arms and legs in black to clean them up. I screwed them back together and WHAM! Great chairs for $10 + a can of spray paint.
