In recent years we’ve found ourselves hooked on Etsy and addicted to Craig’s List, regularly partaking in late night trolling sessions focused on finding one thing: cool old furniture at prices too good to be true!

Well move over Craig’s List & Etsy… we’ve found our new fix…, an online marketplace that connects you with local antique stores and furniture outlets.

I stumbled upon Furnishly late one night (searching to swap out my ikea chairs for something with more character- but not a higher price tag!) and it was love at first sight.  I purchased the two antique chairs (pictured above) from Pandora’s Box, a local store that you can shop online via Furnishly. After securely checking out online around 1 am (for about the same price as my ikea chairs), at 9 am (yes, just 8 hours later!) the chairs were delivered to my condo.  Seamless!

Then came the refurbishing:

Now head on over to and send us your project pictures!
