Finds (and lots of them)

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any of my finds.  So, I’ve gone back into my phone and pulled up some of the awesomeness I’ve stumbled across in the last few weeks.

Need a sofa?  This iphone photo doesn’t do this one justice.  I found it at a local consignment shop, and it has a mate.  The color was actually a rich brown, and it was in like-new condition.  Made by Lane, the cushions were downy and soft.  I could have totally sunk right in.  The price was under $1000 which for a good quality sofa ain’t half bad.

The same shop had these two beautiful chairs.  Again, the photos aren’t even close to the actual color.  These babies were a dark teal.  So current, so comfy, and with that nailhead trim the $350 pricetag (per chair) was a deal!IMG_2554

I almost needed this little table for my back porch.  But, alas I left it behind for someone else to score.  $25!!!IMG_2562I don’t have any need for this table, but it was so darn gorgeous I needed to snap a pic.  The finish was so beyond words.  Absolutely stunning, this table was the perfect size for a game table in a large room or a small breakfast table.  It’s so worth the $499 tag. IMG_2552 Oh, this bike painting made me smile.  I wanted to snatch it up for my brother’s girlfriend, but the $300 tag was a little high for me.  Still a good price, nonetheless, for an original piece of art.  Maybe I could try my hand at recreating it???IMG_2557 Another beauty was this console table.  $1,800 isn’t cheap, but neither is the quality of this piece.  It could literally make the room.IMG_2569 This pair of panels also weren’t cheap (at $1,100) but I never said I had cheap taste.  These could be awesome installed as doors to a special room, or hung on the wall in a grand foyer or living room.IMG_2566 These cute little spools may be more in my budget (assorted prices and styles starting at $3 each). I found them at Vintage Market Days antique market and thought they would be cute tucked into a bookshelf for styling.IMG_2589 The same market had these little metal assorted letters and shapes for making your own signs.  $2 each, your limit is your imagination!IMG_2590I love old bread bowls.  I have one and I use it for entertaining and decorating.  This dealer had a several, and at only $25 each everyone should have one. IMG_2596Foo Dogs have long been used in Feng Shui design.  They are thought to protect the home, and are also known for announcing status.  This pair was made from stone (alabaster?) for $115.  Gorgeous. IMG_2597Do you like a little “whimsy” in your world?  Then maybe this folk horse belongs in your home!  He was pretty cool, and I think it would be fun to design a room around him.  $165. IMG_2598 Next up, I came across this old metal cabinet.  Is it just me, or could you see this being used as an island in a little kitchen?  Or maybe for a cutting/storage table in a craft room?  $195.IMG_2602 Did you know that Bed Bath and Beyond now carries designer pillows?  I didn’t either.  But, while on my quest for the perfect bedding for our master bedroom makeover (still haven’t found anything yet), I came across these beauties.  They are a little high (around $60 each), but the quality is there.  Large, down-filled, and heavy duty fabrics in great textures and colors make BBandB one of my new spots to shop for pillows.IMG_2603And, finally, a shot at our backyard.  The recent rain has brought the green into full force, and we are finally seeing our hard work paying off.  I’m going to be putting together a post to share what we’ve done back there so far. IMG_2577Well…find anything you need?  Or, do you just need me to shop for you?  Contact me today to see what I can do for you and your home at cagilbertson@gmail.com.

Have a great hump day!

Peace,
