In today’s world, when everything is modern, automated and accelerated, the vintage Henry Link furniture gives us a breath of fresh air. A space of our houses decorated with this type of furniture gives us the sensation that things aren’t so accelerated, helping us to generate a warm and quiet environment. Most of the pieces that we’ll find are used, so it’s possible that we have to do some restoration. Let’s see what we must take in mind to correctly develop our projects:
1. Be Realistic With Your Skills
Before we go to the Market to find the furniture pieces of our dreams, let us do self-examination about our skills of woodworking, painting, and do restoration. When we go to buy we’ll see that the greater the deterioration of a piece, the better its price will be, but we must be sure that we can bring the restoration to a successful conclusion.
2. Search for ideas
Before making your selection, it’s appropriate that you do a little research on the Internet. A good search of images, restorations, painting processes, can give you the ideas about what can and cannot be done. Remember that we’re talking about vintage pieces, so when you go shopping you’ll find stained paint, watermarks, and some scratches. Don’t see the ugliness of the piece, but develop its potential in your mind.
3. Check the furniture
At the moment of negotiation, once you choose the pieces that go with your Henry Link furniture ideas, check very well all the elements before concrete the buying process: joints, the integrity of the wood, the solidity of the legs. Make sure at all times that there are no termites in any of them. Take your time. If, for example you are going to buy a drawer, it costs nothing to check it box by box.
It’s now the moment that you undertake this wonderful project of vintage decoration with Henry Link furniture. Remember that you’re looking to create a nice environment for your tranquility and enjoyment, so have fun at every step of the project. Have a nice decoration!
