These would be awesome in the right room, for the right person. And they are free! Don’t like pink, get them reupholstered a different colour. It’d still be cheaper than buying new ones! I think they look super cute.

2. Antique Sofa ($550)

This is such a steal! Perfect as is, but if I were to buy this I would reupholster it in a peacock green as a slight contemporary twist. Such a good price!

3. 1960’s fold down desk ($60)

Well this is just an amazing find. Even if it does have some scratches or needs some repair, this price just makes it worth it. You better hurry up and buy this one or I will!

4. Day Bed ($140)

Yes I know this is ikea, yes I know the black is full on but imagine it in a bright pink, emerald green, fluro coral or white with cute cushions and bedding. The perfect bed for any girl! (I always wanted a day bed growing up, so this is the emotional pick from me)

5. Glass Buffet ($150)

Ok, this one would be awesome if you painted the black legs to a copper or gold- so chic! Its sturdy and classy all at the same time.

I hope this has inspired you to recycle pre-loved furniture, and with a bit of fabric, paint and love they can replicate items out on the market now for a much cheaper price!
