I must confess: I’ve been doing a lot more treasure hunting than actual furniture painting this winter. After what I brought home these last few weeks, I’ve promised myself to stay off of Craigslist and Facebook sales groups for a while. So if I have another Treasure Hunting post soon with furniture in it, please somebody reprimand me! (Although I will be sharing a few client pieces next week that I’m going to be working on soon!) 😉
Here are my recent treasures:
Vintage thrift store buffet – I’m thinking Provence would be beautiful on this.
Here is an antique chair that I paid way more than I usually do, but it’s so unique and I love it! The seat must’ve come off at some point and then was glued off center – should be easy to fix though.
This dresser has so much potential.
I am so in love with this midcentury table for storing records! I’m actually painting this one right now and I’ll share it next week.
This dresser is so solid and well-made. I didn’t know until the deal was almost done that it was made by Henredon. I don’t know much about them except that they’re going for a lot of money on eBay and etsy! I haven’t decided what to do with it yet.
This suitcase is unlike any I’ve seen before. It’s so shiny and has some wonderful patina. I think I’m going to display it in my bedroom and also use it for staging furniture.
This little lantern was too cute to pass up. I haven’t seen many in this color.
Finally, isn’t this mirror spectacular?!
I did not buy it (because of the $645 price tag – ouch) but I definitely have imagined it in my home many times since I first saw it. <3
Have you found any amazing deals while treasure hunting lately? I’d love to hear about them!
Tomorrow I’m posting about a wooden box that was in one of my treasure hunting posts a while back. It got a bit of a French makeover and is a perfect place to store keepsakes.
