I had a fun first week of summer with the kids last week, but having them home means I didn’t get to get out and about. So, while the kids were away this weekend I did just that, and had a monumental day of finds! So much cool stuff. I actually walked away with some purchases (above), including vintage playing cards and an old butter lid. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it yet, but I loved it’s patina. All of these little finds are part of a project I’m working on to prove how inexpensive a beautiful room can be. So, I guess you could consider this a sneak-peak.
Anyways, not everything I found came home with me. Here’s what else I saw…
EAT sign…and it’s wired to light. I thought this was so fun. $150…
Turbine chandelier. $65. I could see this happening.
Bar carts are everywhere. This one has huge potential with a new finish and some modern hardware. $100
I thought this upholstered bench was so cute. $140
There were a pair of these wingback chairs. They are in excellent condition and were really comfy. $125 each. Wouldn’t they be cute with that bench???
Next up is this cool old chicken crate. This would make a great coffee table.
See? From Country Living.
Art can be expensive. But, I thought this bird painting was really cool, and it was only $35.
OK, perhaps the rarest thing I found was this old chicken nest. It was $140. I stood there looking at it, knowing it has a use. Maybe in a bathroom to hold toilet paper and hand towels? Maybe in a kitchen to hold produce? Anyways, it has that cool farmhouse chic thing going for it.
And, lastly I saw these old candlesticks. $20 each. Pretty pretty. They could maybe even be turned into lamps.
Well, that’s it for this week. Hope y’all feel inspired. I know I do.
