It's been a while since I found any good treasures while out thrifting...which of course "good" is always in the eyes of the beholder! I can understand that some cannot see past the dirt, grime and unidentifiable "yuck" that we sometimes find on such "treasures"...I used to be that way myself. Now, I look past it and try to envision what it could be.
So this is what I drug home this week...
Now, this little dresser is going to be "repurposed" and I will bet you can't figure out what it will be used for. I am itching to get at this project...in fact it is already half disassembled. I have to admit, even with my "senior" discount at Goodwill, I probably overpaid for this little puppy, but it was the perfect size for what I need it for, so home it came!
The same day, I found this as well:
No, your eyes are not blurry...I think the photographer may have had one too many cups of coffee! Anyhoo, does it look just a little familiar? Hint...look at those chunky legs. Yep, it matches the two-tier table that I posted a couple of days ago (will share that reveal next week). Once I sand through those cigarette burns on the top of the table, it will be as good as new!
And finally, Melissa and I found this cute little chair at Savers yesterday.
Now...I bought this, (A) because it was a good deal ($12.99) and (B) because it is just one step outside my "reupholstering" comfort level. I decided it was time to push the envelope and try something a little more difficult than this chair and this chair. It is hard to find any kind of cane chair that the cane is still intact, usually is has holes in it, but this little thing is perfect. It is also very sturdy!
So, how did I do?
I will have lots of cookies to share next week as well, as I have been baking my little heart out! Busy, busy, busy!
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
