A New Year, A New Use For Something Old

Customers often stop by the Old Saybrook Antiques Center searching for a coffee table. A coffee table is a contemporary piece of furniture. They are available at any big box furniture store. Why not think outside the box and repurpose an antique to use as a coffee table?
A rustic farm table with the legs cut down can be useful and a focal point in a room. A blanket chest in a mellow finish or old paint can offer extra storage as well as a place to rest drinks. A beautiful antique tray on a stand can be used for both serving and holding beverages.
Wall décor does not have to be artwork. An antique advertising piece, a flat basket or a narrow wall shelf to hold treasured collectibles give rooms unique personality. Antiques can make a statement in even the most modern setting.
Please stop by the Old Saybrook Antiques Center any day between 10:00 and 4:00 and let us help you repurpose an antique for your home.
Happy New Year from the dealers at the Old Saybrook Antiques Center.
