stuff i love: chic antique

So, I need to take a minute to talk about how completely obsessed I am with Chic Antique ever since discovering while randomly browsing furniture on Craigslist (yes, I’m that person–don’t judge!).

Chic Antique is a super cute furniture boutique in Lakeview owned by Crystal Blackshaw; she takes vintage furniture, and with a little elbow grease and paint, transforms them into super cute, colorful pieces. She has both unfinished and refinished pieces for sale, as well as interior design work.

The fact that I want to own half this store has to be a sure sign I’m turning into an actual adult, right? I’ve never spent a large amount of money on a single piece of furniture. Seriously, I’m the girl who spent $10 a few months ago on a tiny desk. I considered my bed (an Ikea purchase, of course) a splurge. But since I want to make Chicago my home, and also make my apartment feel like it’s mine, I feel like investing in some really cute tables and dressers might be in my near future.
