Great Day For Shopping!

Went out today to do a little shopping and it really paid off!
You never know what you gonna find when you go out!
I was lucky enough to find not one, but two metal desk!
I almost fainted.
We don't see these desk very often, but finding two was a blessing!
We found two metal dressers at City Farmhouse last weekend!
I thought that was great, then two desk today!

Got a great iron bed.
Two bamboo handle, canvas umbrellas.
And that strange thing on the desk is a light!
Weird, but cool!

Love this umbrella stand!

And the pictures below are things that we bought on the way home from Texas!
I wanted to show you what all this stuff looks like before we refinish it.
It's pretty gross.
 It takes hours and sometimes days to get it to look like it does when you see it in our booth!

Great utility cabinet, needs a top.
Funky table legs, needs a top.

Two great night stands and a tiny little table.

And this is an exam table that Craig had a fit over.
Already removed the stirrups!
He is gonna put it on large rollers, make a new top and turn it into a kitchen island.
It has storage on all four sides!
Awesome! He didn't like the step at the end,
but I told him that's where little kids can stand while their helping mommy in the kitchen!

Got the shelf at City Farmhouse same time I bought the two metal dressers.
I'll show a picture of those later, Craig had already put them in the building.
The two metal dressers are dated 1941 on the back.
I will be sure and take a picture of that as well!

Another neat nightstand and cool little table.
Nobody wants this stuff the way it looks,
but after we are done with it,
it becomes a lovely addition to anyone's home!

Four Russell Wright Chairs.
These things are awful!
Can you imagine how they will look stripped?
I know it's hard, but believe I will show you when they are done.

Like I said we put hours and hours into this furniture.

These two large cart handles will become table legs!

And Theresa bought these chairs for herself while we were at the show!
I can't imagine why anyone would cover up the backs of these chairs.
See how beautiful they are when the back cover comes off.
There are six of them and they are heavy as all get out.

Can't wait to get these done and put them in my house.
I sold my French Chairs and Marburger and was looking for a replacement.

A few of these small things will make there way to the 
Make plans now to attend the show.

Wow, you found some great things. So glad you showed the before pics of the things you bought before CP puts his creative touch on them. Once you are through redoing these vintage things, Restoration Hardware will have wished they had your number to buy them from you!


Holy smokes girl...Every single thing is good...really good! Can't wait to see the after pictures. It's very hard to pick a favorite but I think it's the exam table. So glad you're keeping the step! I'm also loving the unusual light.

Melonhead flashbacks looking at that exam table, but it is oh so cool!
Those chairs are just fab and I love that you're showing the backs. Nothing beats a sexy curvy back.
Great finds.
P.S. Keep going and you'll have enough desks to open a school!

You must have some special magic wand! :) I love those chairs...and know you will enjoy them in your home. Loved seeing all these pics and look forward to seeing everything once its ready to sell.

Seeing such a great haul makes me want to get up and go junking this very minute. What a great bunch of items. said...

WOW you have such a great eye. And now we know how much work you really put into your furniture. I think that examining table is going to be an awesome island. And I love how you thought of a child helping to cook at it with that step. So adorable:)

Hi Theresa! Just wanted to tell you how much we loved your shop and especially you! :) You were so kind to get back with me so quickly about the mantel shelf. I am so excited to have her in my house. As soon as I move out my hutch from the dining room, she is going on the wall and I will send you a pic! Glendale was so quaint, and we had a great time exploring! Thank you again and good luck with the online ventures! Lisa

Y'all are definitely magicians when it comes to transforming these pieces into the works of art they later become.
