Estate Sale Round 2: Steph’s Home Decor!

THERE’S MORE!  (Lots and LOTS more).  Still packing and MAJORLY downsizing.  I sold through almost everything from last week’s post in 1 day.  Everything (except furniture – local Columbus, OH pick-up only) can be shipped.  Purchasing instructions at bottom of post.

LINEN SETTEE / BANQUETTE – $350 $300

Only a few months old and scarcely sat in.  Perfect Condition.  I have this as a banquette currently on one side of the dining table…

But you could also do it in an entryway, as a sofa in a studio/small apartment, or at the foot of a bed.  67″W x 30″D x 41″H

REFINISHED RESTORATION HARDWARE-ESQUE BOOKCASE – $300 OBO

I refinished this bad boy recently – the exterior is now cream, interior slate grey, and the hardware/brackets are rose gold.  3 adjustable shelves.  59″ tall x 46.5″ wide x 17.5″ deep.  I’ve used this as a kitchen pantry, a linen closet in the hallway (with cubbies), a bookshelf, an organizing station in a med room and a china cabinet.  Super sturdy and versatile.

CREAM DISTRESSED ARMOIRE / TV CABINET / WARDROBE – $700 $500 (retail: $1500)

This one pains me to sell…  Beautiful armoire / TV cabinet purchased from GDC in Charleston, SC for $1500. Cream distressed finish, 2 large drawers and upper & lower cabinets. I have always used this to house my TV, but it does have a bar inside for hangers, so you could use it as a wardrobe for the bedroom. We had to remove the moldings once to fit it through the door of my apartment in Chicago, so they are currently secured with thin nails. I would recommend gluing and permanently nailing these back in once this piece is situated in your home.  Craigslist link is HERE for more pics.  Dimensions:  47″ wide x 77″ tall x 28″ deep

SECTIONAL SOFA (2 pieces) – $500 OBO

Generally acknowledged to be the most comfortable couch on the planet.  Purchased from Bassett Furniture for $3000 a few years ago.  It’s recently been cleaned but it’s not a spring chicken and does have some wear.  I had this custom made in the most beautiful, cozy cream fabric, but came to realize that it pills, so the seat cushions are pilled pretty good.  All back cushions are down.  30″ height x 38″ deep x 108″ across back (on left if you’re looking at photo) and 86″ across right side

CERULEAN AND WHITE CURTAIN PANELS | PAIR | $125

Fully lined.  Rod pocket or can be hung by clips.  Would be really sweet in a kiddo’s room.  52.5″ wide x 96″ long.

MOROCCAN ARCH DELIA SHADES | Grey & White | 3 Panels – $100

I used these for a designer show house I did a few years back and have hung them in every house I’ve lived in since.  They are stunning…  super light weight, and the most amazing thing is that while they allow light in and don’t obstruct your view of the outdoors, you can’t see in through them from outside.

Also seen in Martha Stewart Living…

ANTIQUE BROWN TRANSFERWARE | MISMATCHED SET OF 20 PCS. – $75

I used a few of these on my dining room wall in my house in Charleston (below).  Great to hang, or to use at Thanksgiving.

Small Plates (qty: 16)

Large Plates (qty: 4)

VINTAGE “CHICAGO MY KIND OF TOWN” TUMBLER SET – $20

CLEAR GLASS HOBNAIL DRINKING GLASSES (2 large, 1 small) – $25

Gorgeous designer tray.  I used it to corral liquor decanters on the bar in the dining room.

TOSS GARMENT BAG – $25 (retail: $151)

Sadly never used this.  I just found it in storage.  Details / dimensions here.

BRONZE & CRYSTAL CHANDELIER – $100 $75

14″ x 14″.  So sweet.  One of the bulbs/candles is currently out – I think it’s an easy electrical fix but it’s beyond my expertise.  I’ve had this looking pimp in a closet, and would also be sweet in a nursery or powder room.  eBay listing HERE if you wanna go that route.

NEW(ISH) WHIRLPOOL 3.4 CU. FT TOP LOAD WASHER & 7 CU. FT. ELECTRIC DRYER – $700 (RETAIL: $1000)

For details/specs: Washer | Dryer

Who needs an ALMOST brand new Washer/Dryer?  So sad to leave this little push-button bad boy.  Just purchased in 2012.

Estate Sale! Steph’s Home Decor

I’m downsizing in the next few weeks and selling – oh – almost HALF of the awesome stuff in my house.  Who wants to do some virtual shopping??  I can ship just about anything except furniture – local Columbus, OH folks can do pick-up.  Purchasing instructions at bottom of post.

MOROCCAN VITRINE / CHINA CABINET / BEDROOM ARMOIRE – $300

I’ve used this as a bedroom dresser for lingerie, and for a dining room cabinet to house all my antique tumblers.  You could also use it to display high heels, books etc.  I love the little Moroccan arches at the top.

CREAM DISTRESSED ARMOIRE / TV CABINET / WARDROBE – $700 (retail: $1500)

This one pains me to sell…  Beautiful armoire / TV cabinet purchased from GDC in Charleston, SC for $1500. Cream distressed finish, 2 large drawers and upper & lower cabinets.

CREAM DRESSER – $100

I’m keeping the knobs I added to the top drawer (sahhree) but you can certainly add a gorgeous pair of your own (from Anthro?) to customize this piece.  Otherwise the pulls are a cool, Midcentury modern muted brass/gold.  There’s a cosmetic hairline crack in the top – I just put a tray over it when it was in my room.  Dimensions:  30″ wide x 43″ tall x 17″ deep.

POTTERY BARN ADANA RUG (8 x 10) – $500 (retail: $800+) – SOLD

Purchased last year – no longer available at PB.  No stains.  Recently professionally cleaned and well cared for.  Maybe the coolest rug PB has ever put out – it looks more unique and ethnic than most of their inventory.

OVERDYED RUG – 8′2″ x 9′11″ – $300 (retail: $658)

JUST bought this in the fall.  Perfect condition.  From Rugs USA.

1947 VOGUE MAGAZINE COVER, FRAMED – $150 OBO - SOLD

Professionally framed. Perfect condition. Matting is a woven linen grasscloth. Dimensions: 28.5″ wide x 36.5″ tall

FRAMED MAP OF CHARLESTON – $200 – SOLD

This one pains me a little…  I had it professionally framed for my master bath when I lived in Charleston.  Mint condition.

RITA FRAMED PRINT – $150 – SOLD

I love this in a kitchen.  Originally saw it in Rita Konig’s space in Domino Mag and fell in love.  Dimensions: 29.5″ wide x 37.75″ tall.  Distressed gold frame.  Professionally framed.

PEACH / PINK MOROCCAN CHANDELIER – $150 – SOLD

From Anthropologie YEARS ago.  Discontinued and fabulous.  I’ve had it in a few bedrooms + a living room.  Salmon-y peach / pink color.

PAIR OF NAVY BLUE & WHITE CURTAIN PANELS – $175 – SOLD

Modern navy blue & white curtains…  I recently bought this fabric after seeing it in Clara’s room on Young House Love, and sewed the curtains.  Each is 97 inches long – hung in a room with 9 ft ceilings below.
