I thought the old sign was pretty cool even though it is on the extreme side of shabby. My heart raced when I saw the wallpaper glove box which also has some condition issues, but I don't mind. It was my thriftiest find of the day at a whoppin .10. The silver bud vases are very sweet and I got them and the pink roses painting at the same sale. I have added the painting to my collection in my bedroom and it fits in very nicely. Last thing I found was the vintage red doll case, again, not perfect condition, but okay.
I spent some time lamenting over what to do with the dresser. Keep as is, rustic, paint it a shabby white? After talking to Joy, I decided not to paint it. I had already given it a good sanding when I talked to her so then I just went at it with some good ol tung oil and I think it turned out pretty good. Hardly took any time at all (much faster than painting) and I am really happy with the results. Just needs the knobs added and it's good to go.
Also on Friday I found this dresser/mirror combo at another neighborhood sale. All it needed was a little fix on the drawer and some distressing and it was ready to take to Monticello on Saturday.
Cute little vintage shelf.
And this awesome old armoire which I am definitely keeping. It also needs work (shelves added inside), but I love it. It is going in my front room to hold stuff.
Oh yeah, did I mention that on Friday while trying to find some knobs in the garage I dropped a metal box on my foot and broke my big toe? Ouch, that really hurt. Second toe on the same foot to be broken. I guess I should be more careful, or, wear some shoes once in awhile.
So, I pretty much did all of the above while hobbling around. Fun, right? Just goes to show you that not even a broken toe can stop this thriftin girl.
