Last weekend, I planned a date with my Aunt Kathy & Cousin Lindsay.
A Saturday full of antique shopping. It was a good day & I managed to find a truck load full of treasures.
We needed a desk & that was my first priority. In the back of my mind I wanted to find a large cupboard to serve as a 'pantry.' I had my heart set on what is called a 'pie safe' or 'jelly cupboard.' They sell for $800 - $1,000 on eBay & I am not forking out that kind of dough so when I saw this
Thank heavens I only thought this & didn't say it out loud because my luck got even better & the lady that managed the store said she'd give it to me for 90 Bucks!
"SOLD!!!" [Out loud this time.]
Now, before you think I'm outta my mind, I know it needs some tender loving care, & that is why this post is called "A Work In Progress." I've been painstakingly restoring it, so it may be beautiful & when it is finally finished, I will for sure be blogging about it.
I did find a desk. This is the bottom
& this is the top [Jordan let a co-worker borrow his drill, so we are waiting to put them together.]
It will be fabulous!
Other great finds of the day included:
A small table - - eventually will go in a bathroom, serving as my nightstand for the time being.
A chair - - I love everything 'Rooster.'
