More Saturday Finds


I was so excited to find that I was featured on Someday Crafts for my cabinet to chair project. It's my first time being featured anywhere, THANK YOU!



Also, I'm joining Today's Thrifty Treasures over at Rhoda's Southern Hospitality again this week. Go check out everyone else's great finds!


I had to run to the bank yesterday, and saw that there was a big yard sale going on next to the Scrounge Around shop. I always seem to find something there, so we stopped by.


I found this great old doorknob for $1! She said it's complete, and as far as I can see (but what do I know?) it is. No skeleton key though :(.



Some buttons to cover and old ruler (I'm seeing projects involving these all over these days).Notice the sizes that they have? Men, Junior, Missey & MAMA SIZES?



This hobnail-looking frame.



The milk glass vase is for the girls' room. And the hobnail piece is Fire King. I have another just like this, but smaller.



Two candlesticks that need a paint job.



Pyrex! My first Crazy Daisy piece! The plate & the vase were 2 for $.25.



This shirt will be either a pillow or something for Layla. Probably a pillow though. Ever since I started seeing all these menswear remakes, I cannot find any decent shirts!



One of my favorite finds, this lamp! I wanted a lamp for my bedside table, and had been admiring all the glass ones I saw on other blogs. Now I found one! I obviously need to take it apart and paint it. I need a new shade, too. If you have redone one of these, or know who has, could you PLEASE share the links? I'm not sure what kind of shade to go with. Suggestions?




Thank you for stopping by! I truly appreciate all of your comments!

Great finds...I can't wait to see your lamp complete. I recovered a lamp shade with fabric. For another lamp, I found a single shade at Marshall's Home Good Store. Finals I found at Hobby Lobby ~ all these very inexpensive.

Good Luck!

I just redid a crystal lamp similar to yours. Very easy to do, just unscrew the bottom and very gently take apart. I then placed it gently in a box and spraypainted all of the brass white. To see what it looks like now come check it out..I am no.14 on the Mister Linky list.

Audra said...

Great finds! I love the crazy daisy piece! What a score on the lamp, I am sure you will create a lovely redux with this piece!

Goodwill Haunting said...

Great finds! I would love to see the makeover for the men's shirt and the glass lamp. Thanks for sharing and stop by to say hello if you get a chance.

Leanne said...

Hi Wendy! You found some great treasures. I love the lamp and the milk glass pieces. And you are lucky, lucky, lucky. I love your table and 2 chairs makeover. You did great and they look better than at Lowe's. Saved tons of money too. Great job!

Congrats on being featured! I'll go check out the site! You got some great deals this week. I really like that frame you got - so many possibilities with it.

K Lynne Designs said...

Oh I love the doorknob! And the buttons are such a great deal - they are so stinking expensive at the craft stores! I love the vase too! Thanks for letting me know the name of it - I am so new to milk glass I never have a clue what I'm buying! Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying "hi"! :)
