Re Love of New Treasures

I had a post on a great  yard sale I went to at one of my fave shop owners home.
If you did not see it you can see that post here.

Here are some of my treasures and what I did with them to re love them back into my home decor.


Here is my car loaded with the special finds.  The chair with the hole, the chippy weathered stool, cute table and french painted flower sign and a painted vintage sign you cannot see in this picture.

Terry took the ripped cane off the chair seat.

He then made a new wood chair piece to fit where the cane was.  Yep had the wood and the tools.  Love that man!

Look how perfect the chippy paint is on this beautiful chair.  I paid $20 bucks for it with the big hole in it.  SCORE!

These lovely curved detailed arms made my heart beat faster.  

The back of the chair oh la la.  Did I tell you I got this chair for $20!!!

Had some craft batting from when I did my dining room chairs.

Cut the batting to fit the wood seat.

Used the same gray check fabric I used on my dining room chair seats.

Gotta love the a staple gun.

Easy Peasy new seat for the chair.

Re loved $20 dollar chair with a new seat.

Here is the round chippy table all painted and chippy.  No work just put in place.  Grand total price $24.  Wooo Hooo another great bargain.


Whole new seating area in my dining room for a total of $56.  Chair $20, table $24 and the sign $12.


My love birds that hang above are singing a happy song for the new seating area.






It gives me an extra chair for dining now too if I need it.



Here is the new vintage sign I also got at the sale $10.

I hung it over the window in our bedroom.


Little chippy stool $5.  I did have to add some white to this piece.  It was pretty worn and weathered so just a quick touch up with a paint brush.  No biggie!





I think this cute chippy stool looks good with my new potting table I recently got.

You got to see my car load of treasures re loved into my home decor.  It was a good junkin day.  Love when I can find so many lovely unique treasures at bargain prices.

Have a wonderful day.
Thank you always for your visits.
Kris

  33. DON'T YOU JUST LOVE when this happens? One find would make me swoon, but FOUR all at once? You really scored, in a big way, KRIS! And all white! How exciting is that. Looks fantastic. And you last post gave me an idea for my house too. That gorgeous shelf you got, I am thinking I can make a faux mantle for our great room out of an 8 x 8 and rough it up like our ceiling beams, paint it the same color and place it on a wall above which I'd put an oil painting! YAHOOOOO! SCORE!

    Oh isn't this fun?

  39. Oh wow! Great pieces and great prices! I always have to force myself to NOT touch pieces like the table that are already perfect lol. Keep the hubby. That's a great makeover on the chair!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Kris, you've convinced me to pull out a chair I've been holding for almost two years, almost in the same style as yours, and to finally do something with it. I love your "all white" decor and was just wondering do you use the same shade of paint for all your painted white furniture?

    ReplyDelete
  41. It all looks so nice together. Heck, I could wear that vintage sign as a necklace! Ha ha! Just kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Kris. PERFECTION!! What great bargains and treasures. You took the words right out of my mouth when you stated a new sitting area in the DR. Love that little stool. I have had my eyes open for one similar. Great Job and Happy Wednesday..Judy

    Do you use white s and grays through out your home? I wonder if you have any color added and, if so, what is the color ?
    Your home and photos are so delightful.
