Take Your Pick

While taking a few shots of finds to share, my husband came home with this.





Offically my fave so far this week. An oversized wingback chair. The price? $25. I love the upholstery and the finish on the wood. Not going to do a thing to it. As a matter of fact, it will be the inspiration for my redesign of this find.


Here are a few more finds. Ornate things.





Rusty things.


Metal lighting fragments. These make great candle holders, and other accessories. I'll show you one soon.


A stack of vintage boxes.


Traces of red. My husband wasn't quite sure what to make of my wanting this farm piece. Garden decor, dear.


A little shabby chic.


So, there you have it. A little something for everyone. Take your pick. I'll be back soon with more gesso treatments, and furniture redesigns I'm currently working on. Here's a peek.

  24. How did you get that chair for $25?!?! And did your husband pick it out himself? Can he teach my husband how to do that and get prices like that?

    And thanks for the congrats on 100 followers. I just saw your feature on MMS! AWESOME!!! So happy for you! Huge congrats back!!!
