Make It Last: How to Update & Repair Vintage Wood Furniture

We’ve all heard the phrase “they don’t make ’em like they used to,” which in my experience, cannot be more true when it comes to quality-made furniture. Dovetailed drawers or burled wood veneer seems to have been replaced by the convenience of assemble-yourself, particle-board furniture. Although these pieces are affordable, the poor construction quality makes them practically disposable. But if you get your hands on some solid wood furniture (look for these tell-tale signs ), you may only need a few simple tricks to keep an outdated piece relevant.

The Style-on-a-Budget Guide to a Fall Wardrobe Update

(Image credit: Marlen Komar )

Thrift stores often get a bad rep, because when people think of charity shops, they envision moth-bitten sweaters and squeaky shopping cart wheels; ’80s razzle dazzle beading and broken old toasters. And to be fair, yes, a lot of that goes down in secondhand stores. But there is a lot of gold tucked in between all those shoulder padded blazers and hand-knit sweater vests. And with fall upon us, hitting those one dollar racks is a great way to update your wardrobe on a tight budget. To prove it, I’ve found 15 pieces for $100 and created 12 outfits with them. Ahead is the breakdown, but before we jump into the fun stuff, let’s go over the prep work necessary in order to come out heavy with bags. It’s not all just blind luck!

Quiz: Can You Match the Bathroom to the Decade?

Ah the vintage bathroom: it’s either loved to the point that tears are shed upon hearing that someone ripped out an authentic 1950s space (the original tiles — nooo!!), or loathed so much that it’s the first thing someone renovates upon moving into a fixer upper (white subway tiles, here I come!). Whichever side you fall on—as there doesn’t appear to be a limbo between those two stances—you’re still likely to have fun making your best guesses in today’s quiz featuring bathrooms from the ’40s to the ’80s. “Mamie pink ” tiles, wall-to-wall shag carpeting (yes…in the bathroom), embroidered dividing walls…can you match the bathroom to the decade? Share your results in the comments below!

Sorry, Parents: Nobody Wants the Family “Heirlooms”

In a modern world currently intrigued by minimalism, there’s something that all three adult generations can agree on: the problem of dealing with the collections curated (hoarded?) by our family members. From younger boomers and Gen X’ers sandwiched between their aging/dying parents and their own children to millennials trying to gently manage expectations (and their own limited budgets and storage space) without hurt feelings, the message is crystal clear. As Forbes said recently , “Sorry, nobody wants your stuff.”

Guess the Decade Decor Quiz: Kitchens from the ’30s to ’80s

Trends in home decor can be short lived. Your typical en vogue item will be passé within a year or three (sometimes, even within months), but kitchens are a bit of an exception. Hardwired to a home, swapping out the style of your kitchen takes a much firmer commitment and, as a result, the aesthetics are slower to evolve. That being said, a 1950s kitchen looked like a 1950s kitchen for the majority of the decade and sometimes into the next. The question is, can you match the decade to the kitchen? Some are pretty easy (hey, we like to hand out a few freebies) but others are tricky. Ready to test your design eye?

8 of the Best Etsy Shops For Antique & Vintage Rugs

It’s amazing just how much a new rug could transform a room — you don’t need to trouble yourself spending hours repainting the walls or splurging on new furniture piece when just a new floor accent will do the trick just as well. But rather than going to your local big box store and getting something possibly 10,000 other people in your zip code already have themselves, why not get a vintage rug instead? From boho accents and vintage Turkish kilims to hallway runners with electric colors, Etsy has a plethora of different styles to choose from. Ahead are some of the best Etsy rug stores to shop from.
