So, I have a secret. I know the people who own one of the thrift stores in town and they will call me when they get things in that they think I will like. That's how I got the cupboard doors and the trunk I showed in the previous posts. They also let me dig in their back room before stuff is put out. Here are a few things I picked up there yesterday:
This fun medical cart was only $2. I have already started working on it so tune in tomorrow or the next day to see its transformation.
This ladder was also $2. It has a pottery barn sticker on it that says $149. The star checkers board was I think free. Look at the original directions and the 1939 copyright on the back
I got this nightstand for $3. It is made by the Henderon Furniture Co. I found a matching pair on ebay for $285. Iy does have a scratched top so it is getting painted.
I also got a little cabinet and three shutters from the thrift shop and spent a total of $12.
Here are some chairs that I can't wait to transform for myself. I got them at a different thrift store for $15 a piece. It was a little more than i wanted to spend and I actually left them there, but went back an hour later to get them. The caning is in perfect condition, the seat not so much, but I plan to recover them anyway.
Here is another metal medical ( I think) cabinet that I got free from a friend. I am going to clean it up and take it to the antique barn as is, I think. It may just become a work surface for me too!
I just can't tell you how happy I am when I find great things! I know most of you understand though. Off to paint a bit more!
