Moonlite Monday Guest: Michelle from Three Men and a Lady

 
I’d like to give Michelle from Three Men and a Lady a proper introduction, but I don’t have the words to describe how fabulous she is. Michelle has been featured here , here, and here. I could go on with her features. I have named her the DIY QUEEN. So with without future ado…
  
If I could re-name my blog I would arm wrestle Tonia for the blog name “Chic Modern Vintage.” It really best describes what I strive for my style to be. Who wants a predictable space? Pttt-ewwwy! Anyone can go to a decor store and pick out a matching set of furniture and have it look acceptable but what’s the fun in that? That’s whay I love shopping for vintage pieces. They’re unusual and so not expected in a space. Usually with a little TLC they can look fab. Here’s a few of my favorites that I have in my own home.
Found this chair for $15.00 at a yard sale.
A little re-upholstery later…

This winked at me at an estate sale.

I winked back and it came to live with me.

While on vacation I spied this vintage audio/visual cart on Craigslist. 
My boys have put it to good use as their new bedside table. 
The addition of the vintage locker basket and globe go together nicely. 
  

An office was throwing these old chairs out.

I brought them home, gave them an new outfit to wear
and now they’re suitable for the dinner table.

Vintage owl from Goodwill.

With a new updated look.

It takes practially 10 minutes to dial a phone number on this phone. 
Despite the fact that it’s not very functional my boys prefer talking to grandma on the “old phone” over any other phone.I have a thing for vintage frames.

With a few additions it’s now pretty and functional as a place for my jewelry.
