UncategorizedYardsale Furniture Finds! August 9, 2012Alright, y’all, I’m back to show you the few pieces of furniture that we found on the yardsale. It’s going to be a shorter day than yesterday. Furniture is much more expensive, so of course I didn’t come home with quite as much, but I’m so excited to share these with you. The first two are technically wall art. I decided to post them today since yesterday got so long. I’ve been searching for an old tobacco basket for a while now, so I was so excited to find this first one. I scored this one for $40. Not as low as I’d hoped, but better than prices I’ve seen before. I found this platter shelf for $20, but talked them down to $18. I’ve seen these before and had planned to build one, but this one had character. We don’t have it hung yet, so I laid it on the floor so you could hopefully see how it is structured. I love the turquoise stained finish. On our fourth of July trip to New Bern, I saw this end table made from old galvanized washtubs. It screamed our style, so I took a photo knowing I would try to recreate it. I found these two washtubs to turn into our own version for $30 for the pair. And now for my final and FAVORITE find of the yardsale… We came across this old farmhouse worktable and I fell in love. I love the distressed green finish, the original old handle, and most of all, the metal work top. I had gone with something like this in mind for a future studio/workshop I want to design. I wanted something stylish and old, but with a top that could withstand some wear. I saw this little beauty and knew I’d found it. It was listed at $85, which was too rich for my blood. I know that’s a great price for a table that’s about seventy-five years old in great condition, but if something costs more than $20 or so it takes a whole lot for me to bite. We talked him down to $75 and I took it! Well, there you have it…my many finds of my first trip to The Longest Yardsale. I still can’t believe that for the price many people pay on a small piece of furniture, I got all of these awesome vintage finds to use in our home. I’m hooked on this kind of shopping! We’re already planning next year’s trip. I hope some of y’all will come!!! I’ll be back tomorrow with my highlight of the trip and it wasn’t a find…just a really cool experience!
