Another week and another awesome junk shopping trip. I found a great piece of vintage wicker furniture and all kinds of goodies even something for my Christmas decor.
This wicker chair is so sturdy and so well made. The white paint is chipping off and I can see blue color underneath. I don’t know if that is the original color or not. I took the chair straight to my booth. If it doesn’t sell I will bring it home, clean it up, paint it, and keep it. I can’t keep everything though. When I bring a new (junk find) piece of furniture into the house I usually take one out.
I also bought the wicker table. I don’t think the chair and wicker table are by the same maker. The table just does not feel the same in heft or look like the same style. I also took the table to my booth. What about all that cute stuff on the top? Another picture is coming up.
The blue metal bird was too cute to pass up. Look at his yellow curly tail!
The two very rusty flower containers with the attached “stakes” for names are too perfect. I’m keeping those. The green “bench” planter is unique….and cute.
I didn’t buy the cedar chest. Probably should have.
Another cute metal piece. this chicken is a candle holder.
Yep, I bought this ugly wreath. I like the shape of the grapevine and plan to discard all that other mess. I have all kinds of things to make a Christmas wreath so be on the look out for that.
Are yall as in love with that screen door as I a? I bought it! Don’t know what I’m going to do with it but it’s mine.
The welcome pineapple sign will get just a bit of a makeover.
Now we get to the green 7up bottles. I spotted one a back shelf in the junk shop and I couldn’t get to it so Suzette grabbed it for me then she said “We have a bunch more over here”. So I took those too. I can see them on the mantel at Christmas time or maybe in a centerpiece on the table.
I have to walk through the stuff outside at the junk shop several times because I always miss one or two or three things on the first look through. The giant metal flower stake is a prime example. How could I miss that.
This is my pile of stuff or most of my stuff. I got that metal plant stand on the right also.
If you have some ideas for decorating with the bottles just leave a note. What did you like the best out of my junky finds? I always like to hear from you and as always, thanks for being here, Kathy
