June 21, 2010“New” Thrifted Vintage Vinyl Sofa and Swivel Chairs
Welllll….it’s Monday again. What the heck happened to the weekend?? I feel like Tom and I worked and worked and didn’t get a single thing done. But I won’t prattle on about house repairs. Instead, I’ll give you guys some eye candy.
Behold! Our “new” vintage vinyl sofa that Tom and I picked up recently while thrifting. We were out originally trolling for some Tiki-themed furniture for our three season porch, but we found this bad boy for our basement instead. Pretty sweet, isn’t it? I love the shape of it. It is very swank and is going to be great for the “50’s Martini” theme in the basement.
It is also a futon, can you believe it? It need some oil before it will fold all the way down, but it is supposed to actually fold flat. This is good, because it is actually sprung like a mattress rather than having foam cushions. I am pleased because then it will never get that smashed look some vintage sofas have.
The only down side is that it has that old, musty vinyl smell. I am not sure we are going to be able to get rid of it, so I have put all my resources into figuring out a way to contain it or cover it up.
As you can see, it is already being thoroughly enjoyed by the cats.
We also picked up this excellent set of vintage vinyl rockers at the same sale. I have to say, these are incredibly comfy and fun to watch TV in. Not exactly the same style as the sofa, but I love ’em just the same.
Pretty sweet, huh?
Did anyone else have some good finds over the weekend? Let us know in the comments!
