Time to check out my junk treasures from the past week or two. I made trips to My Favorite Junk Shop and several thrift stores, plus I bought a few awesome things from the online auction.
My best deal was this French Provincial dresser for $25. I bought it at the auction. The dresser is beat up on the top and one drawer pull is missing but that shouldn’t be a problem. I plan to paint the dresser turquoise and I have a big stash of French Provincial drawer pulls so hopefully I have one to replace the missing pull.
Aren’t these two Eastlake-style chairs gorgeous? I paid $16 for the pair. No, I will not be painting them. I’m taking the chairs to the shop to sell them as is.
I also got this fabulous pair of chairs at the auction, for $12.
The antique nail keg came from the auction too but I forgot how much I paid for it.
I bought the cedar chest at My Favorite Junk Shop for $40. I love the detail on the bottom. It will look great painted and distressed.
The inside is in great shape too.
I got the metal planter with the three pots at the junk shop.
And I’m a sucker for whimsical things like “the putty cat” or “Sylvester” framed picture.
I got this vase at a local thrift store for $1.98. A deal.
I paid $6.98 for the jewelry box at the thrift store. A little over my budget but I plan to use it in my booth to display jewelry for sale.
I have a lot of junk jewelry and costume jewelry in my stash and I decided I might as well sell some of it.
I also got this burlap-covered canvas for $1.98. It was my day for deals at the thrift store.
The “welcome” box we $.99. Another deal.
So, what did you like the best? I don’t know if my favorite is the French Provincial dresser or the cedar chest. Leave a note if you have time and thanks for being here, Kathy
