Check out these splurge and steal options for every budget:
In a dream world, each one of us can walk right into any vintage shop or garage sale and find every item we need in perfect condition. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case and we end up with a lot of “projects” instead. Our garages become full of tables to be re-painted and chairs to be re-upholstered.
So, while we all continue collecting, here’s a great list of new retro-inspired pieces to incorporate into your backyard décor. Mixing styles and eras is the perfect way to have an interesting and eclectic backyard that looks professionally curated.
