You would have thought that I would have spent the day getting prepared for the flea market, but no. As soon as I dropped the kids off at school, I hit three thrift stores and an antique mall. What fun! I found lots of great stuff. All smalls which is a good thing as my husband has made it very clear that I shouldn't be bringing home any more big furniture.
Here's a picture of what I got:
I found some vintage slips and a nightgown, two vintage floral sheets, bag of plastic doll heads, rose cottage piggy bank, tole silent butler, three bags of birds, wedding topper, little rose pitcher, metal bull dog, a bunch of vintage keys, black and white picture of boy and girl, two brass easels, cherub tin, vintage doll wedding dress, big wood spool, rhinestone pin, crusty plant holder, toast rack, glass bowl with silver holder and spoon, pretty porcelain lady with pink lace, Victorian looking oval picture, and cute wood cabinet.
Here is what it looks like after I sanded it. Much better, right. Now I just need to decide what color to paint it. I'm thinking either a sage green or maybe aqua. It is a really nice older solid piece. The drawers are a little on the stinky side, but I can fix that.
I finally finished up one of the projects I was working on, but since I'm getting tired, I will show you in my next post. Have a fun weekend!
