Ebay Finds

Ebay is truly an incredible source for affordable antiques.  I was turned off from it years ago when the “Gucci” bag I bid on arrived made of plastic and clearly a fake.  But I’ve had great success as far as furniture items go and went in search of some fabulous finds just for you!

I am obsessed with the incredible hardware on this credenza! And it’s a great price too!

I love the rogal style of this pair of x-bottom chairs- and for only $200 each it’s an easy way to add a little antique style to your home.

A pair of faux bamboo side tables are made more glam with white marble tops- just paint the legs any glossy color for an instant update.

This set of dining chairs has such a unique back- I’d paint them glossy black or white and upholster the seats in a modern fabric.

These chairs are a STEAL at $299 for the pair- again, a simple refinish job and they become treasures!

These mirrors are NOT cheap, but they are magnificent and so unusual! I adore them!

These carved marble horse head bookends would add a really fabulous look to any book shelf (especially one where the back is painted a dark color!)

This chippendale cabinet reminds me of Eddie Ross’ fabulous secretary makeover! Such potential with some paint and new hardware!

This small scale buffet is perfect for a small dining room or apartment. Refinish in a glossy paint and you’re golden.

A very unique lucite chandelier– from far away it may look like a traditional empire style fixture, but up close you see it’s true material and detail! Way cool in my opinion!

And last but not least, these absolutely unbelievable chinese chippendale gothic dining chairs– the set of 8 will set you back over $4,000 but these are TRUE antiques and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I would consider loosing a limb for them. Sweet lord.

  1. Love this round up! I scored a pair of faux bamboo arm chairs (similar to the steel ones) for $89 for the pair off of Craiglist. Such a great find. I’m in love with the Chippendale dining chair – they are gorgeous!

  2. woah, i have that credenza!!! i actually use it as my bedroom dresser + i’ve never ever seen one close to it, not to mention identical! i got it a few years ago in a little dusty, cramped shop in east los angeles, for half the price listed there (plus free delivery to my apartment!) now i feel like i really got a steal! ;) it’s an amazing piece + one of my favorites in my whole home. i’m so glad you shared its twin here!

  3. i just might have to bid on the lucite bar cart (reat find, btw). it’s perfect for a project i’m working on, and if for some strange reason my clients were to hate it, oh well- it finds a home with me!
