All the Vintage Stuff I’ve Bought For The Farm Already – Lets Go Thrifting :)

Every Saturday morning I get up early and with a hot cup of coffee in hand and in a silent house I settle in to jump on the internet and sift, shop, and troll for used goods. I have things I’m looking for, sure, but I also just love the hunt with the chance of finding something worth buying (and coordinating) from afar. But I learned my lesson with the cat chaise, and seeing something in person might be “important”, and yet there are some things that are worth the risk of buying off of photos. So it’s show-and-tell day, featuring the things I’ve pulled triggers on for the farm because they simply were “must-haves” (spoiler – they aren’t really).

A Step Ladder That I Totally Need

Obviously, we need a step stool for the kids to reach to brush their teeth … so why not get a shaker one in a totally random shape that we can hang on a peg rail? You know I love a sculptural weird chair, and I just couldn’t resist this. It was $70 + shipping ( and yes, shipping basically doubled the price). But boy do I love it. I found a few similar ones if you are ALSO in need of a weird likely rarely used but cool shaker step stool.

1. Long Handle Step Stool | 2. Shaker Step Stool | 3. Shaker Stool

Four Cafe Chairs That I Know I Can Find A Spot For

We have a love/hate relationship with our vintage Cherner chairs – they are so creaky and squeaky. They echoed so bad in the morning that I couldn’t sit in them for fear of waking up the kids (and turns out I’m crazy sensitive to noise which I didn’t realize until living up here). So my plan is to use the Cherner chairs in the sunroom, but not for our daily eating which meant I could shop for some other dining chairs. Now, listen, there is a 50/50 chance that these are also really creaky and squeaky and that I’ll regret this purchase and have to endure Brian’s passive-aggressive noises when he sits in them, but they were on Craigslist for all four for $150 so I felt it was a great risk.

I LOVE a vintage Thonet (or similar to Thonet, not sure). I love the whimsy of the bentwood and these even are upholstered so I’m hoping they’ll be comfortable!!! Of course, we’ll likely redo the vinyl at some point, but it looks pretty darn great to me and that was a VERY good price. The sellers dropped them off at my brother’s house and so I might have him do a story where he sits in them and assesses the squeakiness. But my brother is BIG (and he HATES delicate chairs, understandably) so maybe I’ll have his wife Katie do it instead. 🙂

A French Primitive Milking Stool, Obviously.

As I was writing this post Charlie looked over and said “why are you buying a stool cut in half?”. It made me laugh hard because I’m so used to loving milking stools that it didn’t even occur to me that of COURSE it looks like a 1/2 stool. Now, do I need a french primitive milking stool? My first thought was “no” but then I immediately pictured our bathroom, next to the tub, housing all my spa stuff (and a big old branch), and immediately put it in my cart. To Charlie’s point, it IS a 1/2 a stool, for $80 + shipping. But I love the whimsical legs and of course the joinery on top. I need to strip it and clean it up a bit but it will be coming to a photoshoot near you soon (like, in a year).

Small Original Paintings

Charlie also saw me eyeing this mushroom painting and he was like “why would you buy a painting of a vegetable” which also made me LOL. He is NOT a big fan of vegetables (or paintings, really) so I suppose this is confusing to a 7-year-old boy. I think that is precisely why I like still lifes – they take something benign and make them SO IMPORTANT by painting them with such precision. Anyway, it’s going to go in our kitchen or pantry and I love it (it was $22 on Etsy, I believe).

Ok. So I’ve been told that portraits of dead people are creepy. I like them personally, but I appreciate the overwhelming feedback and don’t really want to creep out my house guests. So I figured I’d try to shift my collecting into portraits of pets (yes, also likely dead). As I’ve been collecting them I’ve realized why they make me smile – someone loved their pet SO MUCH to either take the time to paint them or they commissioned an artist to do so. I mean I get it, I take like 30 photos of my pets a day so if that wasn’t an option you bet I’d want someone to paint them. It just makes me laugh and smile and I want to cover our WC or hallway in them. This one wasn’t cheap ($75) but I do love it – he’s so emotional!! Honestly, all of them on the internet are so expensive so this might be something I have to scour antique malls instead.

ALSO – I do want to commission an artist to Victorian oil paintings of Bearcat and Mimi if anyone knows anyone. And no, not a normal pet portrait something that feels more serious and old world like this (mostly because I think it’s funnier – like they are actually posing for their big shot).

I bought that lady at the Sacramento Antique Mall a couple of months ago – So regal. So serious. SO IMPORTANT.

Dachshund Painting Original Oil on Canvas | 5. Small Scottish Terrier Painting| 6. 1939 Horse Portrait Oil Painting in Thick Mahogany Frame 

Fine, One Creepy Dead Guy Portrait

I think it’s just a matter of lack of self-control. This man is good and just felt so period appropriate to the house. I do sincerely regret selling so many of my past dead man portraits (don’t worry I still have some) but when I found him for $30 on Etsy (cheap because it’s charcoal?) I literally couldn’t resist.

1. Antique Art Charcoal Portrait Drawing | 2. Vintage Pastel Portrait Of A Black Woman | 3. Signed & Framed 1884 Charcoal Drawing | 4. Antique 19th Century Original Charcoal Portrait Drawing | 5. Civil War Portrait Photographic Charcoal Framed | 6. Antique Chalk a Charcoal Portrait

What I Came THIS CLOSE To Buying, But Didn’t And Now I’m Sad

Ugh. I LOVE these side tables/nightstands. They are classic yet rustic, but not too shabby chic. They have these adorable little feet, pretty leg joinery, and the perfect amount of patina. They were on 1stDibs for $2k + $500 shipping and It just felt like too much when I haven’t even started shopping in person. So they got snagged by someone else, and that’s ok as the daily taunting of their availability was cruel and Brian was sick of hearing about them. I even looked up the maker to see if I could track them down more affordable ones over the next 6 months but the maker made very few things.

1. Shaker Style Cherry Bench Made 1 Drawer Nightstand | 2.  Shaker Style Table | 11. Shaker Inspired Nightstand

These two were in Portland for $50 and I SHOULD have snagged them. But instead, I insta-storied about them and a reader grabbed them (which actually made me very happy). GREAT steal (but no, I didn’t need them).

1. Two Oak Folding Chairs | 2. Pair of Vintage Wooden Folding Chairs | 3. French Midcentury Wood Folding Chair, 1970

Lastly I love strange architectural tables that are sculptural and just odd. I believe this is a smoking table – (I think?) I didn’t snag it and now it’s gone and I’m sad and life will never be the same until I find another version of it and then life has meaning again.

We are moving up August 20th and while I need to “move-in” and “get settled” all I want to do is drop the kids off at school and go thrifting and shopping for vintage things I don’t need quite yet, but make me VERY HAPPY. I’m not alone, right? HAPPY WEEKEND AND TGIF EVERYONE!!!

Every single thing is wonderful! I so wish you had bought the two matching tables but I’m thinking you could get a local woodworker to copy them using aged wood……or maybe wood from the farm as you take down superfluous trees? It could get even better – you could let Charlie chop down the trees with an ax!

Definitely look into someone to process your wood if you take something down. Such a neat way to honor the trees history, and unique pieces could be made with slabs or rounds.

Dunno about the dead guy portrait though.

b) charcoal? Nope! Pen and ink/watercolour, maybe.

Oh those leather chairs! They look like campaign or safari furniture and I want them badly. Our house purchase is stalled because everyone is an idiot and it is killing me that I can’t go shopping for it! Not that I need anything anyway really but ugh, I want some new old things I can obsess about.

I have a lovely art deco photo frame and love the portrait that came with it. My partner thinks I’m weird so I had to take him down but I liked him. I have decided he flew aircraft in the Second World War and married a sweet woman and lived in (the non-murder bits) of an Agatha Christie novel.

It’s crazy how often people who think portraits of strangers are weird and creepy will do a 180 once it’s explained to them that you have the picture bc the person did some amazing thing in the Great War or WWII or like, supported women’s right to vote back in the 1600s, and it’s such a shame they aren’t more famous for it. Stories bring us together, wink wink.

I have an antique sculpture of an old man fishing given to me by my grandparents, but years ago my daughter told me she was scared of him so I put him away. Fast forward to this summer when my daughter is 14, I put it out and, well, she told me she’s still scared of him so I had to put it away again!

Gosh, if portraits of dead people are creepy then that’s wiped out around 50% of many major museums’ collections, not to mention portraits found in many seats of government, family homes etc. Why should a portrait of some unknown dude who lived and walked on the earth be any creepier than Henry VIII or George Washington or The Girl with the Pearl Earring (to pick a few random ones).
Totally relate to purchases to fill a new house. I bought a heap of stuff on ebay in preparation for a big move interstate, including eight dining chairs, some occasional chairs (I’ve got a chair thing too, could host my own conference), some vintage ceramics, some oil paintings (not from ebay), and a small selection of other irresistable bits and pieces. Why not buy more stuff to move?
I still constantly moon over 1st Dibs, Etsy, ebay and other online second hand shops in search of the perfect French pink marble topped bedside tables…

That’s a great point. In my head, it’s because some random person feels too strange and intimate–you don’t know anything about them or their life, so why should you have a place of worship* for them in your home? Whereas a major figure feels less intimate–they’re brought into your home for something you can easily express and others will readily understand. Sort of similar to celebrity culture. I have a gallery wall of vintage actresses in my living room because I admire their style and beauty, but because they were public figures of sorts, it doesn’t feel odd to me–a collection of glamorous, everyday women would. *That sounds extreme, but it’s rooted in the idea of not having pictures or statues because they encourage the worship of false idols. I don’t think anyone is getting up and praying over their thrift store painting find (maybe 😀 ), but when we display something in our home, we are giving it a level of reverence that we didn’t give to the things we appreciated, but left at the store. This is just my own personal answer to “Why should a portrait of some unknown dude who lived and walked on the earth… Read more »

@ MARLIELE— …..But isn’t it more like worshiping an idol if the picture on the wall of your house is a celebrity or public figure who you know and admire, as opposed to a random person you know nothing about? Obviously you can’t be worshiping the strangers as idols if you don’t even know their names, their stories, or anything about them. The function of the picture really becomes an abstract concept (“children at play,” or “old man”) and a purely aesthetic /visual thing.

Your last picture is a telephone stand. The pullout is for paper and pen and the yellow pages phone book would be stored in the cubby below. The handle would allow you to move it around (when phones were connected by long phone lines!). We had one growing up.

Oh my gosh, I have one of those “strange architectural tables” – the last photo! And I do love it. It originally sat next to my parent’s bed and held a rotary phone, then a push bottom – the bottom part held the phone book! I would lay on their bed and talk, and the phone didn’t slide around. I don’t know why the little part on top slides out – maybe to take notes while on a call? Never thought of it as a smoking table. But the swivel and oddness of it makes me smile, and I’m glad I snagged it when they downsized. Now I want to learn more about it… (mine doesn’t have the top handle like the one you looked at)

Fun stuff you snagged! I never understood people wanting paintings of other people in their houses, but that’s just me. You do you!

That step stool is everything. These are one of my favourite kinds of posts (these and flea markets!!!!). I never would have thought to look for a step stool.
I have, however, been on a bit of a binge for the things we ‘needed’ (not really) for the house on FBMP and Craigslist. Furnished and decorated a good chunk of the house for less than $2000 and it is all really really quality stuff. I love both saving money and the environment!
I need to take a break from it though to save all the money I can for the next 6 months though as there is a looming unemployment in my husband’s future. I’ll shop vicariously through the posts here so keep ’em coming! Thank you!

I recommend SWEL-LOCK for your Cherner chairs. Drip it in the joints and it should permanently swell the wood and tighten the squeaky joints.

THANK YOU! I have the same problem as Emily with some MCM stairs I bought when my alma mater gutted and redid the entire library in the late 90s. I’ve always been told the screws loosen over time and I just need to tighten periodically, but it really doesn’t help much. My husband has been making unhappy noises for a few years now about how we should just get rid of them, but I bought them before I had an apartment to live in – they were the first furniture I ever purchased in my life! I feel so much sentimentality for them, I will have to give them to someone when I’m on my deathbed! I’m going to get some of this and try it, thank you again so much.

Cute finds! Animal art is always hilarious and I like the step stools and side tables. 2k on side tables is too much, you can get the same mood cheaper, or even DIY baby round feet onto something.. Re SQUEAKS I am setting up my home office , trying to use a 1967 flip top walnut veneer table as a desk ( $14.99 yes ) and discovered that it is SO squeaky! Rickety antiques are my pet peeve, and I am super sound sensitive, I researched squeak fixes yesterday. What I found: Squeaks come from dryness/ friction/weakness as joints/joins/ glue ages. Beyond the noise, squeaks are signs that the furniture needs help handling stress of use. Focus on lubricating and reinforcing. Fixes in order of intensity/ skill/ danger of doing harm : 1. Dust all joints with talcum powder . Folks say cornstarch works too, but don’t use graphite powder it can be hazardous to breathe. 2. Uscrew any screws and hardware, coat them with wax, screw them back in. Add wax liberally to any joints and joins. People sell screw wax or beeswax for this purpose, but I found a cheap hack of using a wax toilet seal as… Read more »

My mom had an antique store when I was a kid and we had a creepy man portrait on our stairs we called Uncle Jacob – though he was no relation. We ran down those stairs so fast every day and night, and thought his eyes followed us everywhere! When my mother prepared her will and asked us three children which items we preferred and would want (so there would be no resentments or arguments later), we all wanted Uncle Jacob! May be creepy as a kid or a stranger, but later in life those portraits or things that had great meaning to you will remind your children of your taste and passions and love of art and design.

Love those tables, but the price was steep! You can have them in mind when you start your hunt in Portland. I had a set of 4 Thonet chairs with cane seats from the 1920s. I bought them in the late 1980s from a woman who said they came from her grandparents ice cream shop, if I remember right. I was young and newly married and trying to furnish my house cheap. One or two needed a new seat. I know two were functional. But twenty years later, I could afford “real” furniture. After trying to sell them, not at all popular at the time, I donated them. And over the last five years, I’ve spent my time at the flea markets trying to replace them at a great price. I’m constantly going from collecting to wanting to minimize to wanting to collect again. I guess it allows me to keep hunting. I love seeing all your treasures. I love them all and can’t wait to see what you find next.

Fun finds! Hilarious how many people have strong opinions of faces in their home. I am planning to add some family photos to our house soon. It does need just the right space and the photo matters. I really like scientific illustrations of species (especially sea creatures), landscape and still life paintings, and maps/charts of our area (Alaska). Maps are important for when stories are being told- never will forget my Dads stories- usually accompanied by time analyzing the chart of our region. Totally appropriate in a remote archipelago. So interesting to hear what art people are into and see thrifting scores, thanks for sharing!

I *highly* recommend Paul Tepper of Fur Baby Fine Art for all of your pet portrait needs. He painted our dogs about three years ago: https://www.instagram.com/p/BhfCKYph2ma/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link (https://www.instagram.com/furbabyfineart/).
Okay, so they’re not oils, but he uses oil painting techniques to create depth and texture. Ours is kind of in a caricature style, but he does other styles, too.

Regarding pet portraits, I have to tell you about my very favorite version. In the National Gallery of Scotland, we encountered a portrait of the dog Callum, and the info plaque explained that his owner bequeathed £55,000 to the gallery in 1919, under the condition that his portrait would always hang in the gallery. Now there’s a guy who really loved his dog. You can read about it here: https://www.nationalgalleries.org/art-and-artists/4878/callum

I volunteer with an organization called Project Onward–it’s a non-profit that supports neurodiverse artists based in Chicago. There are a ton of incredibly artists that do portraits (of humans and our best pet friends), starting at $40. Last year I gave my brothers and parents pet portraits for Christmas, and they were a *hit*.

I’m attaching a few of my favorite pet portraits I commissioned. They recently did a dog-themed gallery show, which you can view online here: https://www.projectonward.org/best-in-show

Anyone interested in commissioning a portrait (or any other type of drawing/painting, for that matter–their place/landscape work, I also can’t recommend enough) can email the studio at info@projectonward.org.

For creaky/squeaky old chairs you could try wood glue for joints. I used Wonderlok. It’s very runny so that it gets into the tiny spaces but it made one of my chairs totally quiet and it has remained so for a whole year of lots of use! If you’re not sure about using glue, you can also try baby powder (talc free). That has helped some other furniture of mine a lot also!
