Fabulous Furniture Finds

I hit the garage sales today. I didn't think there would be too many, but I managed to spend fiddy dollars. It seems a bit much, but that did include a nice donation at a garage sale for a family that is raising money to adopt a boy from the Philippines. I love the chair and can't wait to paint it and recover it. I'm keeping it!

Aren't those little boots the sweetest thing?
And what about the cool sewing cabinet?

The lady wanted $25 for the old trunk--her hubby took $5 for it. Those are old wooden levels sitting on the trunk. And the cabinet or TV stand is solid wood. The candle thingy--well not sure what I will be doing with that, but something with spray paint (Joy may have passed her addiction on to me!). The headboards will become a bench.

Well, I got a lot of work to do now with all of these new things. So I am off to labor over this Labor Day weekend!

  8. Those are some wonderful finds. Especially that chair! I was looking at a very similar one just yesterday at the fleatique but I couldn't figure out how to recover the back. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

    I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I love it. We share a love of fixing up old pieces to make them beautiful again. Thanks for sharing.


  9. All that for $50?? Wow! I love that trunk and tiered table!

  10. Not bad deals!!! That chair is awesome. I have to redo my chairs but need someone to do them as I don't have the confidence that I won't mess them up.

  11. I'm a sucker for sewing cabinets, boxes, racks, etc. I've yet to see one like yours! Great haul!
