Week 17 ~ Diamonds In The Rough!

Diamonds In The Rough! is my weekly feature, where I show you the treasures that I find from garage sales, thrift stores and antique stores.

This was an unusual week, Garage sales were not good again, I think because of the heat. However, my girlfriend let me come over and pre-shop her garage sale items. And a got a wonderful hutch at a thrift store.

Here goes with the treasures.

The whole bolt of Waverly fabric for $2. I used most of it to make a skirting for my booth.
And I found some furniture pieces to refinish.
This sad antique table is so damaged on top, but for $1 I can peel away the veneer and cover the top with book pages, paint the rest and it will be beautiful once again for selling in my booth.
This was a $1 chair. If I needed one to plant flowers in the seat, I would do that, but since I already have one, I will cut a board to upholster the seat and paint the chair. Another thing for my booth.
I needed shelving space in my new booth, so I picked this antique hutch up at a local thrift store. I will paint it with my chalk paint and transform it.
And some trash by the side of the road.
Can you believe that I picked up 8 of these antique corbels on the side of the road? What were they thinking throwing these away!

  1. Love your new hutch!!! It is simply divine!!! Please stop by sometime and share for Treasure Hunt Thursdays!

  2. Love your pretty vintage china; those cups/saucers are adorable.

  3. Wow! All the china is great, also the glassware ~ love the little Scottie! And the hutch is unbelievable, can't wait to see what you do with it! The by-the-side-of-the-road find is something I'd love to find at the end of my neighbor's driveway!


  4. Oh how I would love to have that hutch!! I think it looks awesome the way it is, but I'm sure you'll do it even better justice! Can't wait!

  5. Love it! The hutch is beautiful! Love your finds and the new life you've given to them - so glad I stopped by, thoroughly enjoyed my visit,
    Your newest follower,


It makes me smile to hear from you!
