Last week I did quite a bit of thrifting . Some of these items came home with me to stay, some to sell and some I reluctantly left behind .
This square coffee table did not come home with me although I am still thinking about it . It has great lines and would be easy to paint. And that ugly stained glass would be easy to remove . Honestly, if it had been priced a little better I probably would have gone for it . If I can find a place or a client for it, I still may go back and see if I can talk them down . . .
It is hard to tell in this picture but these scales were HUGE ! I already have a set that I posted about here but the sheer scale (Ha! No pun intended) of these was pretty impressive .
This sofa has great lines and is in great condition . Plus they were pretty much giving it away so I really couldn't say no . Now I just have to find the perfect fabric so I can have it reupholstered .
This cute little sake cup is perfect for holding earrings and other bits of jewelry in my closet .
I don't know what it is with me and tool boxes and caddies . I just seem drawn to them for some reason . I love having my art supplies organized and these just work for me . Speaking of art supply organization . . .
This linen cabinet would be perfect for holding art supplies, fabric samples, etc . It was a really simple sturdy cabinet but they wanted too much for it even after I haggled . So I left it behind . But I am totally thinking about making something similar . I think it would be pretty easy to do .
I love a carrera topped pedestal table . With a 15% discount I could not get this guy in my car fast enough .
Another item with serious reupholstery appeal . I didn't bite but I am keeping it on my radar .
And some of you are going to think I have lost my mind with this next (blurry) photo, but I really think these guys have potential in the right setting .
These Foo dogs are HUGE ! And I can just see them flanking the entrance of a fancy pool house like this one :
Are you with me or do you think I'm nuts ? If only I had a pool house .
And my favorite recent find - these old oil lanterns .
They have great patina and I am hoping I can have them converted to wall sconces .
I am not sure how much longer Hayes is going to tolerate my thrifting so I am trying to fit in as much as I can before she totally revolts !
