Saturday I was on my way to a thrift store that (benefits battered women) to donate bags of clothes when I realized this one neighborhood was bulk trash day. Yall I have no qualms about dumpster diving and porch picking! I scored a heavy white wicker chest of drawers. FREE!!! It was super fun loading it in my truck by myself. All it needs is some TLC, new knobs and fresh paint. Last year I found a white wicker headboard so now I will be selling them as a set.
I was surrounded by garage sales and my thrift store didn't open for another hour so what's a girl to do!! Shop.
I can't believe the great things I found.
I found a glider rocking chair stripped down of course by the curb. Easy to fix for sure! I bought a solid wood desk that is too cute for - 10$!!!! It's not plywood yall it is the real deal. I bought a globe, a drafting desk (10$), and a ladder bench, and a chandelier(5$) and a head board.
Have you seen benches being made from headboards? So cute! I bought a twin size headboard and footboard a few weeks ago for 10$. I found a gorgeous wooden board by the curb. It was just too pretty to leave behind.
I bought a Victorian love seat last weekend at Canton but didn't post picture.
I also bought a brand new floor rug to replace our other one that my dog practiced potty training on. I hated throwing that rug away but the stains didn't come out. The rug is huge and it was also 10$. Score!
I love this old picnic basket I bought. It was made in Iowa.
A plant stand for 2$
The drafting desk I'll be painting
Headboard I bought and piece of wood I found
How cute are these silver salt and pepper shakers?
So funny story about the lamp- it was in the curb and I only wanted the lampshade for the shade frame. This guy opens the door and yells "the lamp works"! I thought he was mad for grabbing his trash but actually he came out and said " I know you may think it doesn't work because it's in trash pile but it does work. I just set it out this morning". So I had to take the ugly lamp because I didn't want to hurt his feelings. Then the lamp shade ended up being in terrible condition and it crumbled in my backseat. I may clean this baby up and see her shine!
Fred Sanford ain't got nothing on me!!
Have a great day yall! My blogging may be slow this week depending on work load.
