Before and After

Sometimes all it takes is a fresh coat of paint to give a piece of furniture new life.

This old wooden dresser came in to Mimi’s a little sad, a little worn.  The paint was chipped in places and weathered from a previous life on a porch.

The customer who purchased the dresser painted it a jazzy shade of fuschia in preparation for a new life in her daughter’s bedroom.

What a difference!

Stop in to Mimi’s to see unique and useful pieces that you could personalize for your own space, and remember: we’ll give you $5 in store credit if you send us photos of your Mimi’s Before and After.

Staff Pick: Industrial Chic

Mimi’s has recently been overtaken by vintage, industrial style furniture. Since these pieces are made out of solid materials like steel and oak, they have a timeless quality about them. They’ve stood the test of time and are sure to stay stylish well into the future. Stop by and check out our impressive stock of Steelcase office chairs. If you’re in the market for a desk, you might like our gorgeous flip-top  typewriter stand (pictured right) or our sturdy retro Steelcase desk. These pieces are obviously perfect for an office setting, but why stop there? We think they would make clever additions to kitchens and dining rooms as well. As always with Mimi’s finds, your imagination’s the limit!

Staff Pick

Um…. WHAT?!?!? Is it me, or did this Victorian-style sofa just waltz off the set of Beauty and the Beast and into our hearts? This French Victorian reproduction is quite the sight to behold. The tufted back, the Queen Anne style legs, and the ornate carvings all culminate into one truly show-stopping piece. You can take it home for $325 if you like, but you should at least stop by to see it for yourself!
