more One Kings Lane sale sneak peeks

More One Kings Lane sneak peeks for you because I’m a total tease like that. The sale is March 10th, which is VERY soon, and I’m scrambling to finish the spreadsheet for it. Sorry, no pricing yet, but just be warned, these pieces aren’t cheap. The amount of work that goes into the sale is out of control. But I won’t bore you with that, instead I’ll tell you a story about how I turned garbage into glory.

One day, six months ago, I found this set of sofa/chairs at a thrift store. They were desperate for a face-lift but had great lines and were a great scale. The sofa is actually a hide-abed which you can have completely redone. (The inside mechanism and mattress will run you around $700 = upholstery + labor, etc.)

Now, they are these hot pink wonders. I splurged on the fabric because I knew they needed to be in a really amazing color, so I think the fabric alone was $300, but they are just oh so good.

You can’t tell in the picture but I de-skirted them, making them way more modern and less retro.

Then there is this vintage plycraft wonder in disgusting ripped black vinyl:

But don’t worry, because now it is covered in this wonderful teal.

This is the only chair that Brian is BEGGING for us to keep and I still might pull it from the sale at the last minute, but for now it’s going up.

Next are these little ’80s bedroom chairs:

The lines are challenging and not for everyone. But I love their little shape and style.  They just need new fabric:

Now they are VERY cute indeed. That fabric in the photo looks busy, but it’s actually super soft high quality velvet.

Other goodies up for sale?

waterfall bench

Love that bench. I wish I had the before photo of it because it was in a really beautiful (not) marbled cotton.

And this awesome Paul McCobb desk that I had white lacquered:

My coffee table, I know … she’ll be VERY missed.

  1. Martha

    The plycraft chair is sick–definitely my first choice!

  2. Dawn Jurgensmeier

    If I’m fast enough, I’m buying that teal chair and coffee table.

  3. Sunne

    the blue bench

  4. Alex

    Paul McCobb Desk! Paul McCobb Desk! Oh my goodness, that desk is the manifestation of all my hopes and dreams.

  5. Nat

    the pink and lucite stool!

  6. Sarah

    Your coffee table is killing me! I need it! Badly!

  7. Emily

    Brass coffee table! Though it’d be hard to back away from the pair in pink!

  8. Molly

    Those pink chairs, and the blue bench. LOVE!

  9. Kimberly

    Your coffee table!! That’s what I’m gunning for the day of the sale. Then it’s the ming chairs. I might have to have about 10 of my friends connect from their computers because last time I wasn’t quick enough to get the brass lamps or the brass trunk. Although, having just paid my horses board bill and still trying to save for Iceland this summer I’m not sure I should be spending money willy nilly…haha… It’s hard to pass up those items though!!

  10. Chris

    I’m OBSESSED with the teal chair!!! And that desk!

  11. Dana

    Toss up between your coffee table and the Plycraft! I saw my own Plycraft in an antique store that I so desperately wanted to buy!! But unfortunately, my fiance squashed that idea.

    But why oh why are you selling your coffee table??? It’s so “Emily”!

  12. Lesley

    The pair of teal velvet chairs. So cute!

  13. Sam

    Ooh, I don’t blame Brian for wanting to hold on to that teal chair.

  14. Brandon

    I would NEVER let go of that teal chair. EVER.

  15. Elyse B

    oh man i love your furniture revamps so much. hmm first choice is definitely the teal chair for my office… then the two blue velvet chairs, they look so cute and comfy! i bet my 18 month old would love them.. but yeah velvet probably wouldn’t be so great with little kids. third is the coffee table, love love love it.

  16. oh my word. My favourites would be pink velvet set and that too good gold coffee table! Cant wait to see the sale! Praying for a quick sell out for you

  17. Lynn

    You do actually have a “before” picture of that bench – on Instagram, way back in November. I was so sure that I had seen it pre-gorgeousness that I looked it up. :-)

    You are a miracle worker!

  18. Wanda

    Coffee table for sure!

  19. Lauren

    The pink chairs and navy bench!

    How can you sell a chair that Brian is “BEGGING” to keep?! He let you hang the amazing pink pendants in your master bedroom. He so deserves that chair.

    I hope we’ll get prices before the sale!

  20. amber

    Those hot pink chairs! And that brass coffee table…and those Ming chairs…and the dark teal 80s chairs. Great makeovers Emily!

  21. Laura

    I love the hot pink chairs and brass coffee table. So wish I lived near you and had money. Oh well :( You do an excellent job on these, I always love your posts and am secretly your bestest friend! Hehe

  22. Darlene

    Plywood Chair – saw its twin at the Burlington Antique Show in Kentucky. It even had teal vinyl. So I was kinda awed that you used teal. However, the price was $800 and it needed some love. Too rich for my blood but maybe yours will fit my budget.

    • I’ve come across a few Plycrafts in the past year, but all of them were too costly to even allow reupholstery to cross my mind. I passed on them because I loathe the vinyl, but this gives me hope for the future.

      A little sad the hot pink chairs lost their contrast piping. Or did they? I love this font.

  23. Lauren C

    Hot pink chairs for sure!

  24. Lindsey

    Those raspberry velvet chairs are amazing and would phenomenal in my grey bedroom. I want!

  25. Oh let Brian keep it! I have one and it is THE most comfortable chair ever! He deserves it.

  26. Rebeca

    your coffee table HANDS DOWN!

  27. Maria

    Keep the Plycraft chair please. We found the exact same one last weekend for $25 and the next day saw it on the blog so we’ve been calling it our Emily chair. If you sell yours we’ll have to rename her and she’ll still be the best chair ever because she was so cheap and gorgeous,but it won’t be the same.

  28. michele double you

    I’d take Brian’s chair in a heart beat. The (your) brass coffee table is gorgeous george, though.

  29. i would absolutely love to snag that coffee table…but i’m broke phi broke over here, so i’ll just wish an early congrats to whomever gets that treasure :)

  30. Brittney

    I like how everyone is referring to that chair as “Brian’s chair” now haha I’m sure he’ll use that as leverage to keep it.

    But ya…Brian’s chair ROCKS.

  31. elz

    Toss up between the coffee table and that awesome teal chair. Either one would make me SO happy!

  32. holy moly!! you are sheer talent. love EVERYTHING, and definitely shopping your sale…

  33. Carolyn

    The brass Sarreid trunk!!!!

  34. Faireden

    The hot pink chairs!

  35. tammyCA

    Dang, tough to decide on a favorite…love the hot pink set and the teal cuties, but my eyes also popped out with the teal plycraft number & I don’t even have a modern decor. Well done! I swear if my reupholstery skills were way better I’d be dragging home every sad, neglected piece of furniture and giving it the Molly make-over. Even today, no kiddin’, a vintage chair at the thrift store said, ‘help me’ when I walked by it. I pretended not to hear but it put out its leg and tripped me. Sad chair with funky torn vinyl but cool shape that squeaks for $5.99 followed me home. I don’t think I should let it see your pretty pictures.

    karl springer (style) waterfall bench. sweet

  37. Michelle H

    Those hot pink chairs are To. Die. For. I have a couple of mid-century pieces that I have had reupholstered and “de-skirted.” They look so much better. Good call on that.

  38. Michelle H

    One more thing…Girl, you are single-handedly changing color schemes across America!

  39. Erin

    That plycraft chair is utterly amazing so I’d take that in a heartbeat. Don’t give it up. You’ll hate yourself forever. Or possibly for like a week, but you’ll regret it. Or put a really high price on it and decide that if it doesn’t sell it was meant to be yours.

  40. Desi

    The plycraft all the way. I love that.

  41. Bridget

    If not for having purchased just two weeks ago the same exact brass chest, I’d go with that. However, since I already have that sweetly in my home, I love the pair of dark teal feminine bedroom chairs. They are classic now that you’ve chosen the perfect coor tone for them. Are you also selling “styling accessories”in your sale?
    How about a sneak peek of those? You know you want to . . . .

  42. Jacy

    I want a sneak peek at the art! There’s one painting you’ve talked about in the last year that I totally covet.
