So what better way to start the New Year than to share them with you!
First up is this awesome Mid Century Nelson inspired bench I found on the Altus Classifieds page:
I don't really need a bench (my husband can attest to that) but I couldn't pass it up. They even delivered it to my house! Couldn't ask for anything better than that. Furniture hoarding at it's best!
My other find was from a shop that I didn't even know existed until the other day. The owner said he's getting older and isn't able to keep it open as much anymore. But I'm hoping he stays open for a while longer because his shop is a junk lovers dream- lots of old stuff for cheap. I bought a few things but my main score was these vintage milk crates for $8 each:
The red one I'm considering using in Con-Man's room or our guest bathroom. The plain metal one I'm using in our bathroom for storage.
Next up was this pair of side tables. I had seen them in a shop in town I frequent but they were $70 for the pair and I really only wanted the marble tops. But when I stopped in last week they had marked them down to $40.
$20 for a side table with perfect condition marble tops was a deal to me. Not sure what I'm going to do with the bases but I pried the top off of one of them and am using it as a top for my barrel I found in New Orleans a few months back.
The marble is wider than the mouth of the barrel so I don't know if this will be it's permanent place. I'm thinking of welding a whole new table base for it; but that is another story for a different time.
Also- do you see my Fiddle Fig Leaf tree? I've been thinking of buying a large faux one online until I discovered that you can order real ones online from Home Depot. I didn't even know they offered that until someone told me.
Now all I have to do is keep it alive...
Have you found any thrifty luck lately?
