Estate Sale Finds!

So, a few days ago I told you I would be back to share a couple of estate sale finds from last week's junkin'!  My hubby happen to be home that day and decided to go with me.  I purposely did not suggest taking his truck because of course I never find cool stuff when I am prepared to move it!  Unbeknownst to me at the time, this was actually the second day of this sale.  The light bulb went off when, just as we got there and I was sure all the good stuff was gone!  Imagine my surprise when I walked into the first bedroom and saw this:

 Ummmm, hello...is this still available?  Yep...SOLD!  As I was telling the lady that I wanted it, she asked if I saw the dresser in the other room.  Nope!  Imagine my surprise when I found her brother:

...big boy!  I was positively giddy!  It is hard to tell by these not so great photos taken with my Iphone, but the drawers have a beautiful curve to them.  Love, love, love!  Seriously, what morons people passed these up on the first day of the sale?!  I mean they are real wood and everything! 

Anyway, I was so excited I did not even think to offer less...I am sure she would have taken it, but I was still happy to get all three pieces for $180.  As we were unloading, Ron realized that the mirror was not originally a part of the set.  Clearly they had added pieces of wood to attach it to the dresser.  It has an old tag on it that says 1949...I think the other pieces are from the 70's.

I am sure that I don't even have to tell you that the redo process has already begun.  I plan to refinish this set for Guest room #2.

And while I am showing you fun pieces, how about this cute desk:

For those of you that don't know, my daughter Kelli, is in final phases of purchasing her first house.  How exciting is that?!  We are trying to talk her into chronicling the remodeling process in a blog...we shall see!  Anyhoo, while doing her last "walk through" yesterday, the seller offered up this cute desk for free!  She text me a picture asking if she should take it...hell's yeah!  I see great potential...do you see it too?!  Oh ye, of little faith!

I have cookies to share in the next few days so be sure to stop by!

 There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies! Photobucket
