A Furniture Weekend!!

Friday morning I went to a garage sale. I got there right after it opened, since I made a wrong turn. The ad had read, some antiques and vintage furniture etc.
Well I ended up buying several pieces. My husband had to come, and help me make several trips, with my bounty.
We finally got it all home, and stored it for now in the garage. I still need to clean it, and paint the black dresser off white.

I got this cute little table with the twig legs for $5.
The coffee table that you see up above is for my daughter. I have one just like it, and she always asks me if she can have it. Well now she has her own.
The white patio set you see has 5 chairs, not 4 not 6, but 5.
My other set has 4 chairs, so I went cushion shopping yesterday.
My daughter will be taking my old set to her new house, in a couple of weeks.

Anyway, the chairs are really unique. The backs move with your back, and they are really comfortable. The table is much bigger, than the one I have now.

I got this, great dresser for $25.00. I had actually been looking for one, that is why I went to the sale in the first place.
Finally, I got this English sideboard/dry sink for $75.00. I have always wanted one for my dining room. I just hope I can figure out where to put it.
In case you were wondering, the patio set was $100.00.
We made many trips to this woman, Sherri's house. She was very nice, and we hit it off. She has a booth at an antique mall, near me. She had lots of other wonderful things for sale too. I wanted it all. When I get everything cleaned up and in place, I will show it to you.
Hope you are all having a great Monday!

That was a great deal on the dry sink thing! Love those chairs, the twig table and everything else! That's my kind of sale.

That patio set is fab-what a bargain Rosemary, I love the chairs that go with it too! Everything else you got is lovely too, and great prices! Love the english washstand as we call them over here-now it just needs a jug and bowl set to sit on the top!! Maybe you already have one-if not have fun looking! xx

Good gravy, did you do well! The twig table is definitely my favorite, though I have to say, I think it's wonderful the very type of table your daughter has been coveting can now be hers. How excited WAS she when she found out she was now a proud owner of one?
