Sunday Finds

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I attend a Saturday night Church Service, for one ~ we love it, two ~ there is a great auction nearby held every Sunday morning.  We leave the house about 7:30am with coffee in hand and head out on a mission, hoping to find some horribly, neglected treasure that no one else wants!  Today, we found a few!  Normally I wait to share before and after pics but I’m working right now on custom orders and I’m not sure when I’ll get to these so I thought I’d show you now.

This first item is a chair made by the Tell City Chair Co.  It’s solid as a rock, I just need to re-cover the seat cushion and polish her up a bit.  Thanks to our friend and spotter, Ken, who told us we needed to bring her home with us! 
 This is a sweet little swivel chair.  She would be great behind a desk or vanity.
 We scored another secretariat.  Almost perfect condition.  I noticed a small crack on her backside but it doesn’t affect her integrity.

 Finally…we picked up this little side table along with another table (that we have already loaned out to a friend to use at her garage sale) for just $1.00 FOR BOTH! 

 We didn’t need to stop here but my husband bribed me with “I’ll take you out for a nice lunch if we don’t have to stay.”  Since it was going to be another couple of hours before the other items I wanted came up for bid, I gladly agreed.  There is always next week, right?

  1. You have some lovely finds can’t wait to see what you do with them. Look forward to future visits.

  2. GREAT finds – love the serpentine drawers on that secretary!

  3. Love the secretary, Judy! I’m looking forward to seeing that redone. I have to hit our Salvation Army on a more regular basis ~ they always have a lot of furniture. I’d like to find a desk of some kind for my daughter. One I can makeover for her as a Christmas gift.

    • Thanks Kathy…wow, that would be an awesome gift for your daughter, and one she could cherish for years to come. My daughter and son-in-law are purchasing their first home in a few months and have asked me to shop for their furnishings and decorate. They want a more modern look and I can’t wait to get started. No matter what the age, it’s always wonderful to be able to do something special for our children! 🙂

  4. Great finds. Love the secretary is is beautiful. I can’t wait to see what you do.


  5. Oh my goodness, that secretary is gorgeous. Are you going to paint it? I can’t wait to see it redone!!

    • Hi Heather…I do plan on painting a portion of the secretary, but just how much, I’m not sure yet. I love the contrast of stained wood & paint. It will be done in the next week or so. Have a wonderful weekend! ~ Judy
