You can imagine my excitement when my coworker suggested going to a few sales during lunch. Hells yeah, I'm in!!
We made it to three sales and I
filled her entire trunk and half of her backseat got a few things...
First up, this white wicker trunk that I got for 8 dolla dolla bills ya'll!!
They were only asking $10 but I mentioned the clasp on the front being broken, offered $8, and she accepted! I was really unsure of how it would look in our bedroom, but for 8 bucks I figured it was worth a shot.
D was still at work when I got home, but I was so anxious to see how it would look that I dragged this huge thang all the way upstairs by myself. I may have knicked a few walls along the way, and broke a serious sweat, but I got it up there and was pretty pleased. It seemed a little big but I was interested to get D's opinion.
We've had it in our room for a week now and every time he walks by he it says "Kate, I mean, this was a really good find. 8 bucks? That's a really good find!" I think he likes it...
And if one trunk wasn't enough...
Got this one for only...
you're not going to believe this...
are you ready...
Look at the patina on the handle! Gorge!
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this one, but when I slid it in front of C's bed, it fit just perfectly!
Doesn't it go great with his vintage sports themed room? I'll be doing a whole post on his room at some point in the future. Stay tuned...
I didn't fill my co-workers car with just a bunch of wicker trunks. Hard to believe at this point, but it's true. Here are the other Somethings that I gathered:
|Wire hen basket.|
|BIG glass jar|
|Another big glass jar. I'd like to paint the lid a fun color. |
This might be good to fill with craft supplies like yarn or ribbon.
|White container with handle and slot for label.|
|Salt and Pepper shakers.|
|I think I am going to use this for another one of my cheese domes and turn it into a cloche on a pedestal.|
|Napkins and placemats. I am at a total loss of words right now for what this pattern is called... Someone help me out here... anyone... Bueller?|
Anyone want to see those awesomely cheap wicker trunks again? Ok, me too!
That'll do it for day 7!! 7 Days of Somethings is complete. I think I might need to take a mini bloggy break this week to get some projects off my forever-growing list. Maybe... just maybe I'll come back with "7 days of Somethings I actually turned in to Something!"
