Week 22 ~ Diamonds In The Rough! Part 2

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 is Part 2 of my week of treasures! There was so much that I had to break it up for you. In Part 2, I will share what happened when I answered an ad in the paper for a night stand. Most of this will be sold in my booth!
This is what our CRV looked like after calling on the ad!

This is a huge frame. The frame is solid walnut and old. I will remove the large needlepoint and save it to use on a bench.
This is a vintage needlepoint stool. I will remove the needlepoint and put it in a smaller frame to be able to show only the floral area. I will revamp the stool.

I thought I would show you the underside of the stool. It has an old magazine ad showing!

A nice old oak framed mirror.

This floral picture was interesting. It is a very old print and I loved the patina. I will throw away the frame and put it in one more suited to this picture.

This is a professionally framed print of downtown Hannibal, MO. It is numbered and signed. I figured that people from Hannibal shop the antique mall that I have my booth in, and they might be interested in owning this.

This is the night stand that caused me to answer the ad in the paper. I have plans for this just like the twin night stands that I recently painted and posted.

This is a really cool iron coat tree. Here it is laying down on the driveway for the best photo. We love this and plan on keeping it.

This bookcase (that came with the shelves, not pictured) will be used in my mall booth.

A cool iron pulley.

A handled box

A weight that went with a large scale. We are using it as a door stop in our tool room.

This old fern stand needs a new top, and it will be a fun piece to paint and fix up.

This chair reminds me of the subway art chair (below) that I painted. I will do something fun with paint on this one too.

An old Remington box for my son. He will love this.
Two 16 x 20 framed cupid prints
I loved the vintage cupids so much that I put them in one of the guest bedrooms. The other pictures that hung here will be shipped to my sister in NC.

This is an old child's rocker that has seen its better days. The woven seat is dry, brittle and broken. This will be an opportunity to be creative!
