Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I was able to have the kids over for supper last night (will share more about that when I'm allowed to)
I seriously loving having adult kids.
Do I miss the stomping and running and giggles of children under my feet? You bet I do. But at the same time, I love watching my grown kids lead lives of their own and making my heart melt to see what wonderful people they have become :)
Saturday was a busy busy day.
Here in Ontario, yard sale season is just starting. Normally I head out Saturday mornings with my handy list of yard sales I want to hit and cross my fingers that there will be more on the way.
BUT there were not a lot of yard sales going on, and those that were, were self describing as "lots of little girls thing" etc.
Not the best places for finding furniture treasures.
So I decided to NOT yard sale.
My husband and I instead went into town (we were at the cottage and town is 7km away)
There is an antique furniture dealer there that I often stop in at and I find great things there.
On our way there was an "indoor" yard sale that was not advertized. YEAH! So we stopped.
OMG...I was in love.
This baby is solid wood with NO veneer. I'm going to love working on her. She is even on her original casters! How sweet is that?
We then proceeded to finish our errands and then headed home.
We stopped to see how much ice was still on the lake, helped push a little car out of the soft sand and left. We hit another home run when we spotted more furniture!
woo hoo. We ran to the cottage and dropped our secretary off and went back to have a closer look and then nab two more dressers. There was more there but these are the ones I wanted.
Solid wood mid century and in wonderful shape. YEAH! So happy!
Not bad for a day where I didn't "plan" on doing any yard sailing! :)
Ohhh and I also picked up these in the past week or so.
The table is just about done and is sold!
Now I'm home again and can't wait to get back to the cottage to work on these beauties.
