I do have one more treasure to share from my father-in-laws attic and I am really hoping to find more of this set when I go back to visit his attic again. It is such a cool set and it was the set my husband remembers using when his was a child.
Now onto this weekends finds. I went to the Salvation Army on Saturday and didn't buy anything the first time through. I was just out running errands, so I went on and finished those up. But, a certain picture I had seen there kept nagging at me to come back and get it, so I of course had to swing back by and pick it up. All pictures and furniture were 25% off, yeah! I only paid $7.50 for it.
I love lighthouses! Sorry, this picture is not good because I kept getting a glare, so I had to keep changing the angle. Anyway, it is the sweetest little lighthouse sitting on the desolate coastline, all by itself.
I really don't like the frame, so I will either paint it or find a new one, but it will look great on my mantle.
I also picked up this sad little footstool while there. It was also 25% off.
Can't you just picture it with a pretty little drop cloth slipcover?
Yesterday, my daughter and I went to a couple of thrift stores we don't get to very often.
She found this little sled for me. I also have a little thing for sleds, and this one has real metal runners.
A little Christmas in July.
I also found these two directors chairs for $4 each and then they were having 30% off of all chairs!
That's only $2.80 each. I swear I saw a remake of directors chairs and one of the linky parties this weekend and of course now I can't find them. If any one knows where they are, send me a link. Pretty please!!
I can't wait to do a cute makeover on these!
Last, but not least, I had to show you this beautiful maple vanity and stool that I bought from another dealer a few weeks ago. As you can tell, I have already started painting the stool. It looks white in the picture, but it is actually a very pale shade of pink. She had it for sale for a couple of months and I kept ogling it. It seems almost sinful to paint this beautiful maple, but alas, noone wanted it as it was.So, it is getting a coat of paint and we will see if it sells all freshened up.
Thanks again for visiting. If you enjoyed this post, I would love to have you as a follower!
