So this week I wanted to share with you a couple of my favorite pieces and a couple of great finds.
I've been having these two for a while now and the more I use them the more I love them.
This first one is a card catalog that my parents actually picked up for me in Texas last year. I had been wanting one and they got this one for an amazing price so we couldn't pass it up. I truly wanted one in a darker color but this would do. There is always stain, right?
I have it set up in the garage for now (because our house is small) but hopefully in a few months we will be in a new larger house and this will definitely be going in my studio.
Believe it or not you can put tons and tons of stuff in those drawers. LOVE!
And a few years ago I picked up this vintage strawberry basket while thrifting and I had it proudly displayed above my kitchen cabinets.
Recently I got it down and actually started using it.
I use it to gather all the art/craft supplies that I will need for a specific project so that everything is in one place.
I LOVE using this for all of my goodies.
Do you have anything vintage treasures that you use from day to day in a different way?
Would love to hear your sweet stories.
Now onto my two recent finds.
Last weekend I went to a couple of church fundraiser garage sales and snatched up a couple of things.
This is a pie/cake/goodie stand. It was only $2.
I plan to paint it black and add two new white plates to transform this to a modern updated look.
Then sell it. lol!
But I love the lines and presence the swirls make known. I just may have to keep this piece once I redo it! We'll see.
And I thougth this was interesting. It's a candle holder that would probably go down the center of a table or on top of a bar. I can see it during the holidays with lots of candles and greenery stashed in and underneath.
And best of all, it didn't need anything but a little screw tightening.
And it was only $5. And this is a big piece.
So In the am I'm off to Tenessee with the honeybear and the kiddos for a roadtrip vaca. I'm hoping that somewhere along the way we might find some junky place to stop and find some treasures. Wish me luck and i'll let you know what I find.
