This post could be my regular Tues post, Thriftin’ Time Tuesdays but I didn’t thrift for these following objects….
How about this for shabby?
Isn’t this incredible patina….all natural…the real thing. There is silver, pale blue, black and natural wood! Can you beat this? I don’t have to ‘shabby’ it, at all. You are never going to believe where I found these! The neighbor boys were cleaning out a shed and throwing these on their burn pile, when I thought I saw something ( I was at least 150 ft away inside the house!) that resembled a piece of furniture. OFF I WENT….I was able to salvage most of the drawers although I had to reassemble them….very warped etc. but they seem to work just fine. I plan to put these in my chicken coop (coming soon!). I was able to glue and fit most of the drawers together with the pieces I found. A missing drawer or two won’t bother me. I am so thrilled to have them!
There’s no top on one but I am thinking if these are tall enough I might put a door over the top for a long work bench for potting plants in my future chicken coop!
And I just fell in love with this old advertisement I discovered at a ‘chance meeting’ estate sale….it is about 20 x 28…huge. Women were still wearing corsets so it’s pretty old. A cowboy hat was $.49! I believe this would also look good in the coop, my ladies would appreciate it! Oh, I saved the best for last….
Now, don’t go calling my crazy but this is going in the coop, after it gets all kinds of crystals and doodads hanging off of it….oh, and a new paint job. This one I did find at a thift….are you sitting down?…$5!!! My girls are going to love it!
