Join me as I renovate my 1881 farmhouse with much creativity and very little budget. (Often with humorous results). Oh and there may be random ramblings posted from time to time. It helps quiet the voices in my head. Well, that and the prescription the Dr. gave me...
I have decided to make this a regular feature. Every Monday I will feature my latest cache of funky finds from shopping, thriftin', junkin', flea marketin', dumpster divin', garbage pickin' and any other manner I acquired something new or new to me!
Check out this sweet and simple pine chest/ toy box. A few tiny dings and scratches, but that just adds character. The hinges and lift arm are in perfect working order. The interior is spotless. It looks (and smells) new. I bought this at Goodwill. Originally marked at $35 but there was a manager special sale and I got it for $22.75 Woo-hoo! I lurrrveeee it! While the color is not my 1st choice (it is a little to orange-y), I am gonna live with it for a while.
This metal cup has a key handle. Kinda quirky!
Vintage Market and Thrift $3
I got a dough bowl!!
Vintage Market and Thrift $16
Not a bad haul this weekend! The pine chest is going my living room for use as a coffee table. The key cup will look good on my desk to hold pens and the dough bowl is going to sit on my dining room table!
