Diamonds In The Rough~Treasures Week 4

With all the rain that we are having, I thought that this weekends garage sales would be a bust. But I was wrong.

What I found to work on...
  • An old walnut pedestal. A soon to be hubby remake project!
  • An old sturdy chair (I will cut a board for the seat, paint and upholster for my daughter's apartment) If I was keeping it, I would weave a new seat.
  • An old oak desk. The missing door would have opened from the top down for a small old desk. But I see it as the perfect place for a TV on top and DVD inside. The top veneer is in very bad condition to save, but I will paint the top or decoupage something on it. Sheet Music? Map?
  • A set of six classic books like Edgar Allen Poe and Moll Flanders. The Poe book will be part of an Easter gift to my daughter tomorrow...she just named her new kitty Edgar Allen Poe!
  • A tiny feather Christmas tree perfect for in a bathroom during the holiday.
  • A star on a spring...If I don't want the star, I can do something crafty with the spring.
  • A couple of 4 x 6 frames.
  • A cool Wellington sign in metal, for resale at my mall booth.
  • A Moor Mans measuring cup, for resale at my mall booth.
  • A silver cup for decor.
  • An old Holland candy tin, for resale at my mall booth.
  • A wonderful old floral garden picture. I haven't decided if I will keep this or not.

The work has already begun. I have the old oak cabinet reglued and clamped. And I told my hubby that I need more garage space. He told me that it was really called "hoarding"! LOL
