NEW oLDe Finds & a Make-Over!!

After a stressful day yesterday, this morning I decided to venture out just over the road a bit....and came home with a wonderful haul!!

Best of all was the price ~ I won't divulge the exact amount, but starts with an "f" ::big grin::!! Old windows, a neat chippy paint work table (thinking would be a wonderful potting bench!), old flower pots, a few neat industrial metal bins, etc!
Some of the goodes will be SQUEEZED into the shop, and some will go to my booth at the Depot at Gibson Mill!!

And, now for a JUST A FEW of the NEW "OLD" pieces now for SALE in the shop!

This old ice box made me SWOON!! LOVE the chippy white paint & the rusty metal door!
And the INSIDE?!LINED WITH AN OLDE COCA-COLA SIGN!!
I had a really hard time deciding to part with this piece, but sadly I can't keep everything! lol

Another favorite is this wonderful old 1800s trunk ~ still has traces of the paper lining too!
and this WONDERFUL chippy metal medicine cabinet!

and now.....

drumroll please.....

THE MAKE-OVER!!

this weathered old table was part of my haul this mornin...had traces of yucky leather covering it that I promptly ripped off....digging thru my STASH of feedsacks, I knew JUST the one to use!!
NOW a WONDERFUL bench, ottoman, or coffee table!! Soo many uses ~ it's a great size and a perfect height!!

Thinking this piece will head to the Depot for sale.....

I'm now back to sewing ~ preparing lots of wonderful new handmades for my 3rd annual Spring Tyme in the Country March 20th & 21st!!! More to come on that....
