I bought some goodies at the junk shop and I’m sharing the photos today. I’ve already started working on a couple of the furniture pieces and I’m curious to see what you think of them. I hope to share the updated furniture tomorrow.
The twin bed is perfectly shabby chic, at least for some people. I got the bed and the rails for $20. That was a steal.
You can’t really call this table shabby chic. It’s just a hot mess right now. I think it could be beautiful though. First thing to do is clean it up.
The mid century style desk was $20. It is so sleek looking. I don’t know if you can see it but the open shelf area had those decorative metal manels on the sides. I was going to paint the desk but I think I may sell it as is.
Mr. Butler, the owner of the junk shop, working on a piece of furniture. He repairs some pieces and sells others as is.
I liked the big cabinet door but not the smaller ones.
And guess what. Mr. Butler came around the corner with the mate. I bought both of these. I think they would make cool signs.
I passed on the chairs although I really like them. the seats aren’t the kind you can just take off easily to re-cover.
I ran into one of the girls who works at You Never Know in Clarksville where I have a booth. The lady on the right is Mrs. Francis, She is Mr. Butler’s sister and she hates for me to take her picture. She is going to be a little upset with me.
Jamie had a load of stuff. Too bad she beat me to the shop and was loading up as I was just getting there.
What did you think of my finds and do you have any project ideas for me? Thanks for being here, Kathy

Crazy about the desk. What a stunner.
If you only lived closer, it would have a sold sign on before you could stage it.
Hi Mr. Butler and sister!
It looks like you have to much fun finding all that cool stuff. I would love to go Junking with you some day. I need to find a place like The Junk Shop in Oregon. Thank you.
Love the white bed, the shabby chic table, Mr. Butler and Mrs. Frances. Not a fan of anything mid-century! Love your creativity!
Cant wait to see what you will do with the twin bed. I have a trundle bed with a very similar style.
Ooohhh the shabby chic little table is going to be stunning! I also love your idea of signs for the cabinet doors. Can't wait to see how you do that. The junk shop looks like such fun and I wish we had something like that around here. Great haul!
