Sneak Peek

Good Morning Blogging Friends.

I have been trying to keep the January blues away by doing some small projects around Junk Chic Cottage.

Love my Habitat Restore.  I find the best stuff there to re love and the prices are fabulous.

Our Restore is in an old town where unfortunately they are tearing down a lot of old vintage homes to build new homes.  So our Habitat has been getting a lot of old salvage from these tear downs.  I am always amazed at some of the great old doors, windows, cabinets etc. they have been taking in.


Just wanted to give you a sneak peek at a couple of finds that my Handyman Terry is fixing up for me to reveal to you soon.


Look at this scrolly chippy bench.  That bench fell from heaven and needed to come home with me.  I will show you soon where this pretty ended up in Junk Chic Cottage.

Her boards are warped and do not fit but no problem for Terry.  He has tools and knows how to use them!!!!

Just look at her curves and pretty patina.  So much personality in this old garden bench.

She was screaming make me pretty again and find me a place in your cottage.  Yep I can do that!!!!
I will show you soon where she landed.


Old vintage twin headboard for $10.  This is getting re loved too.
Working on a few change ups where both of these pieces will find new places in Junk Chic Cottage.
Stay tuned.

This is how Terry and I felt after we scored these two fabulous pieces for a steal at Restore!!!!!









Have a fabulous Friday and wonderful weekend.
xoxo
Kris

  2. Well, looks like those things will both be in place for your birthday---which is NOT this month. lol Can't wait to see what Mr. Handy-Dandy does with that bench and I know you will make both pieces beautiful. Have a great day, Kris.
    LOVE that Ikea ad and think it is one of the better ones I have seen in a while. xo Diana

  9. Kris I cannot stop laughing at that Ikea commercial - I don't watch television so commercials are very entertaining to me - rare - but holy moley that is hilarious! I can see you and Terry know acting just like that, too. Those items are TREASURES oh my word, how extraordinary! I loooooooove that bench!

    Well done! Have a blessed and wonderful weekend! Hugs! ♥

  14. I can't wait to see how those turn out! The bench is awesome already but will be even better with a little love. Now what are you doing with the headboard? Chalkboard?

  15. Wonderful finds...I won't be able to sleep fantasizing about what you are planning for these new beauties. I need to start on a few smaller projects to chase away some winter blues also. I have been feeling a little less motivated recently...I guess I can blame it on rainy days blues. Not something we've been able to say in recent years in Cali. Now it seems we never see the sun. LOL

  17. You find the best things at your ReStore, Kris! That bench would be so pretty indoors or out. And I can't wait to see what you've got in mind for that headboard! Pretty soon we're going to see you and Terry on a commercial!

    Have fun transforming your newest treasures and Happy Weekend!

  18. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know the feeling of fleeing the cash register after you've paid what seems to be a great mistake, then GETTIN' THE HECK OUT OF THERE before they say, "OH, we made a mistake!" teeehhee

    YOU scored. That bench is perfect for YOU!

  19. Hahahaha! That's too funny, Kris, and I'd be the same way! Love the Restore. We now an additional, about 30 min away. Following them on FB helps see the items so you can do like the Ikea commercial, only in reverse. "Start the car, we gotta get there!" Your pieces are great, and I can't wait to see them in your home styling.

  20. We have two resale shops near us, but they never have anything good. Can't wait to see how your bench turns out. Getting 55 degree temps here today in Michigan.

  21. Oooh, love the bench! Can't wait to see what you do with the headboard. The ReStore close to me is kinda junky, (as in no cool stuff like you find at yours). Have a good weekend...in the 50's here. xoxo

  27. Great finds and I do love that commerical. She is so funny.....

    I can ahrdly wait to see what Terry does to your treasures. I went to ours and there wasn't much there. It's a little far so don't get there very often.

    Looking forward to seeing the post about your new treasures looks.

    Hugs,

  33. Love your finds! Had to laugh at the IKEA commercial...I have felt that way a time or two with some of my finds. Lol. I'm ready for Spring...tired of our halfway Winter. Never know how to dress from day to day. Sigh. Plus I miss the green!

  43. We don't have a Restore nearby, but lately you're making me wish that we did! Of course, it would be helpful if every purchase came with a "Terry"...my husband is handy, but on his schedule, which of course is not alway MY schedule! ;) Lucky lady!!

  44. Our nearest Restore goes in cycles. Sometimes great stuff. . .sometimes not. I know that feeling expressed in the video so well when you find something great bargain. Have fun!
