Hope you had a great weekend.
My daughter Amanda had me up at the crack of dawn on Saturday for garage sales.
There were so many that day. One of the last sales of the day, I found this pretty cabinet.
I had been looking for something pretty to use for storage and display. Not sure if you can see all of the detail from the picture, but it has crown moulding at the top, and a really pretty applique. The white shelves and back have a slightly crackled look. This was a designer piece, but the lady was changing her decor. If you look inside the cabinet, you will see a vintage cake stand from another sale. Oh I forgot, girls like to know the garage sale prices. Well, the lady wanted $150 for the cabinet, but let me have it for $100. The cake stand was $2. (Click on picture to make larger)
Here is a closer view.
My daughter also found some great stuff. She is really getting into the garage sales, since she got married, and bought a house.
She is always amazed at what you can find out there.
Now for my chair. This did not come from a garage sale, but an antique mall. We used to have a bigger chair in this corner, but we recently redid our master bedroom/bath, so we needed a smaller chair. I used a lot of linen in the redo. We spotted this chair that had already been recovered in a pretty linen fabric. It turned out to be really comfortable too. It wasn't a bargain, so my husband had to talk me into it. We actually went home, and I thought about it. I had been exhausted from hosting 4Th of July the day before, so I went to take a rest on the sofa. When I woke up, my husband had gone back to the shop and bought the chair for me. I am so glad he did. It fit perfectly, and looks perfect in our redone room. Thanks again honey!!!
Just another little view of my dining room.
Hope you all have a great week ahead!!
