You all know how much I love giving old furniture a new life and new home. I’m usually a real thrift store hunter – you know, going through LOTS of rough stuff before finding those diamonds. Every so often though I’m not so much in the mood to hunt and kinda just want to look at stuff that someone already went through the trouble of curating and collecting. That’s where The Millionaire’s Daughter comes in. It’s an upscale consignment furniture and decor store with three locations in Southern Ontario. They do the hunting so you just have to do the picking. And for one lucky reader, I have a $100 store credit to giveaway to get your own preloved treasure from The Millionaire’s Daughter.
I’ve been on the lookout for a teak hutch for sometime now and found just the right piece. This isn’t so much an ugly duckling to beautiful swan dramatic before & after because there’s nothing wrong with the hutch I had before (PS: it’s for sale if you’re interested). In fact I really like it but the issue was that it was getting a little crowded and I really wanted a bit more hidden storage space. I was super excited when I spotted this classic mid-century teak hutch at The Millionaire’s Daughter and scooped it up. It doesn’t take up that much more room but gives me more storage and a counter space that’s great for display (my favourite) or for serving. I already have a bar cart but if you didn’t have room for both the counter would be great for that too.
Of course it was really important that I could show off my vintage glassware. I have a whole post coming up with a closer look at my collection. I know you just can’t wait! I love that this hutch has built in lighting and glass shelves to really show everything off.
The Millionaire’s Daughter has been around since March 2009 with their first location in Hamilton and has since opened two more locations in Oakville and Aurara. So if you’re in the Greater Toronto Area and looking for a unique and more affordable piece, you should stop by.
What I love most about consignment furniture stores is that you never know what you’ll find. You may come across something you love that you would have never thought to go looking for. The thing with preloved furniture is that sometimes you find the perfect piece as is but for other pieces you just need a little imagination and vision to see the full potential. In my experience, most furniture with a few years behind them are better built than some of today’s modern furniture so it’s worth giving them a closer look because you’re probably getting a better quality piece. Here’s 8 great pieces you can find at The Millionaire’s Daughter and some ways you can transform them into modern & stylish pieces for your space.
