Guest Blog- Douglas and Son; an Epic Restoration! Part 2

Part 2 of Douglas and Son's Epic Restoration focuses on the dining room, sleeping loft and bathroom.


We paired this amazing table (from the now-defunct Canada Tavern) with a set of 8 rough school chairs salvaged from a church basement. The rolling shoe rack holds art, wine and some more sentimental heirloom antiques. We used basic clear tube light bulbs in the classic chandelier to give it some edge.


Walls and ceiling are rough pine planks that we white-washed with diluted white paint (this is a great DIY project for a single wall behind your bed). We made the bed out of some free skids. Bedside tables are old crates turned on their sides to hold books and reading lamps are vintage metal desk lamps.


We turned an old dresser into a vanity and added a modern-ish sink and faucet. Medicine cabinet is vintage and displays some apothecary items. Old Spanish street sign keeps things from looking too twee. Lighting is from Rona... we're waiting to find the perfect vintage sconces, but until then, these'll do!

If you like what you see then come check out the next Leslieville Flea on October 20th behind the Duke at Leslie and Queen street east! There's a ton of incredible vintage goods coming your way.
