Vintage Metal Furniture

Lovingly Restored and Transformed

Just about everyone has a memory of vintage metal furniture... sitting with your Grandma on an old two-seat metal porch glider or spending time with your family in the backyard on colorful metal rocking chairs.

Remember the days of metal chairs and chats on the porch?
Yes, those are some memories to savor. We love these on Debbie's side porch.




Metal Porch Furniture Made New Again

So, we are naturally delighted to have come across Amy, who is the owner of Mulberry Street, a company that restores vintage metal furniture.

Some pretty amazing before and after photos

It's hard to fathom the condition that some of the pieces of furniture are in before they are restored. Take a look at the amazing work that Amy and her staff of experts accomplish:

How Amy Got Started

Amy began searching for vintage metal furniture and second-hand treasures with her mom at a young age. Amy says there is a story behind each piece of furniture that her company lovingly restores. With a background as a graphic designer, she loves restoring old things.

Mulberry Street Online is Born

So with the love and help of her husband and her son, Amy established Mulberry Street, her own company that lovingly restores these long-lost old pieces of vintage lawn furniture.



The Process of Restoring Vintage Porch Furniture

Amy has a great team of dedicated professionals, from sand blasters, welders and repair experts to coaters and upholsterers working on their porch furniture. In some cases, she says, they "perform near miracles to restore it".

They carefully inspect the furniture to determine what needs to be done - structurally and cosmetically. Armrests are removed and the whole piece of furniture is primed and coated. They strip the furniture down to bare metal. Then it is dipped in primer and coated with a high performing weather-resistant finish.

They update the colors but try to "keep a kinship with the original look". Amy says that each piece of furniture has seen life and upon being restored, is ready for new life. Her goal is to preserve the character of the furniture.

So the restored furniture might have some dents and imperfections, but it is sturdy, structurally sound and beautiful! And it has a story. A story of families spending time on their front porches, grandparents and children engaging in meaningful conversations on the porch glider, and sweet simple times just sharing a glass of iced tea in the backyard.

We hope you enjoyed these fantastic pictures of vintage porch furniture that Amy's company has restored. Some of these pieces have already been sold but her inventory is always changing.


Take a Look at Amy's Back Porch

Amy gave us a glimpse of her spacious back porch where some of her vintage metal restorations happily reside.
