Beauty at the Barbershop

They just don’t make things like they used to.

Which is why I’m so drawn to antique stores and the like…

Always on the lookout for that extra special piece.

Well, this has got to be our most unique find yet.  An old barber shop mirror turned sideboard.

This piece has replaced our old mantel.  Yes, that same one we installed not too long ago.  (embarrassing)

Plans not tended to tend to change.  Needless to say, the fireplace insert project never happened.  But this barbershop piece fits in better with our new demolition plans.  Stay tuned!

Several little birdies have congratulated me on being mentioned in the Flea Market Style 2011 magazine:

But I have yet to get my hands on it!  It’s not from lack of trying.  For two weeks now I’ve combed the racks and nada!  Even yesterday!  I’ve only had a sneak peak from Urban Farmgirl:

To say I feel honored is an understatement.  Thank you so much Flea Market Style!  I chose Revival Antiques in Raleigh as my favorite place to shop.  They started out as a booth at the Raleigh Flea Market, but now have a showroom and warehouse in downtown Raleigh. 

The showroom has a mix of accessories and furniture that they have repurposed:

But the warehouse is my favorite part…stuffed full of treasure just waiting to be polished up… or beat up, depending on your style ;)  My kind of shopping:

I have bits of Revival sprinkled all throughout my home.  The barbershop piece being the latest, but definitely not the last.
