I got a sofa and a matching chair from my granddad when he died. I don’t know how old they are or what they’re worth, but they’re rather functionally uncomfortable so I’d like to sell them as antiques. Could anyone refer me to a good site — especially an online community — where I could post pictures and figure out what their value is?

My husband and I are looking to buy new bedroom furniture and I really want black with a 4 poster bed (not laminate black, but maybe distressed?) and really want to make the room look “beachy.” I was even thinking of an iron bed and then black dressers, night tables, etc. Is this even possible? We are painting the room a very pale blue and adding white beadboard around the lower walls. I was thinking of a white matelasse comforter, but just don’t know if the black furniture will work? I’m afraid that white furniture will limit us too much in the future though. Any ideas would be great!
