Okay--I am not sure if my finds are fabulous as the title indicates. There were no garage sales today, not a one! I realize we are under a winter storm warning (or a it's really supposed to be spring storm warning!),but I thought there would be at least one or two sales. So, to fulfill my craving for crap ( and by crap I mean awesome, incredible junk!) I hit a few thrift stores.
I found this table, metal tray that I will make into a chalkboard, candlesticks and glass plate all for $10. The table needs a good sanding, but it is sturdy and look at the legs, I like their detail. The wood stick thing is, I think, a chair part. I thought it would look good as a trim piece on something.
At Habitat for Humanity I found this awesome, very heavy window by the dumpster. I went in and asked if they were getting rid of it and they said yes and I could buy their garbage for a couple of bucks. I only had $1 on me, so I paid that. It is a metal framed window--look at that peeling paint patina (say that 5 times fast!). It must be leaded glass because it is way heavy. One of the panes is broken. After I figure out how to remove the broken pane, I think I will see if the other window can be used as "white board" and then put a bulletin board in the bottom half. I also got this suitcase for $3. I love the aqua color and the inside is in pristine condition. I will probably paint something on it--maybe a nest like I did on the coat hook in my earlier post.
Have an amazing weekend! Check back soon--I plan to work on some projects this weekend.
