It’s time for another installment of Treasure Hunting, aka “The good stuff I’ve found at yard sales and thrift stores lately.” Some of these items I will redo, and some will go straight to my booth. And I usually end up keeping a few things for myself (for awhile anyway). 😉
I fell in love with these nightstands the moment I saw them. It wasn’t until I got them home that I noticed markings that indicated they used to be part of a vanity or desk and they had been separated. Very cool pieces!
Drum table = Love. It actually looks pretty good from a distance, but whoever glazed it left quite a few streaks and some drip marks.
These metal drawers are pretty awesome. There were 12 available but I only bought these 3. (My car was pretty full already!) The CD holders next to them – I have no idea what I’m going to do with them but I’ll come up with something. 😉
Chair = Love. The fabric looks like it might have been painted over because I can see a faint floral pattern underneath. This will be a fun makeover!
Candlesticks, cool bottle, and awesome little bowl with gold details. All treasures!
I love the lines and pattern on this lamp. I’m also excited to do my first lamp makeover- that shade needs some serious help!
Lovely vintage green glass bowls – part of a larger set of dishware, but unfortunately I couldn’t buy it all.
Ornate mirror and fabulous silver serving tray – the tray just needs cleaned up. Does anyone have advice for cleaning antique silver? I’m going to consider keeping this piece because it is GORGEOUS!
And I almost forgot about this one….
I needs a little work but I can’t wait to get started on this one! I’ve been wanting an antique Singer sewing machine table for a long time.
Have you found any treasures lately?
I’d love to hear about them in a comment below!
