Last Weekend’s Finds (Vol. II)

Did you read about my amazing news yesterday? I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. Counting down the days (there’s even a widget for it on the sidebar now)!

I was on my own again this past weekend because my hubby was at Kid’s Kamp but I had a great time garage sale-ing! We always have fun together and so I look forward to heading out with him this coming weekend. He drives, I navigate and pour the coffee. :) We are quite the team.

I managed to score some great pieces again!

I got this slatted coffee table and end table set. I think they would look great in red (ASCP Emperor’s Silk) or white. photo 3 (74)

This step end table with a drawer was also a great find! Maybe navy (ASCP Aubusson Blue)?

This beautiful sofa table already underwent a transformation in ASCP Graphite (dark charcoal grey/black) and looks fantastic. It’s even posted for sale on the Store page!

My favorite find last weekend was this gorgeous hutch with wire-front doors! I can’t wait to paint this beauty and am thinking grey (ASCP French Linen).

I also picked up a ton of small vintage goodies like silver, ironstone, cloches, rolling pins, and lots more!

Last week we acquired a few other pieces of furniture as well…

This beautiful coffee table that will look great in grey (ASCP French Linen) or navy (ASCP Aubusson Blue)…

How about this lovely sofa table? I’m not sure on a color yet for this one. Thoughts?

And last, but certainly not least, this awesome mid-century piece! I want to go bold- coral or kelly green with the paint.


I have so many options of pieces to work on that my mind is constantly thinking about colors and techniques!

With that in mind I bought a bunch of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint this weekend including a few colors I’ve never used before- Aubusson Blue and Graphite! I’ve already tried Graphite and loved it. I can’t wait to try Aubusson Blue and even more!

Anyone interested in a full page that will be regularly updated of Furniture Before and Afters? I’m thinking this would be a great place for inspiration and to catalog what I’ve done.

What do you think of my finds? You can always follow along on Instagram for the most up-to-date goings on!

  1. A before and after page is a great idea! I see this beautiful wood furniture and think “why would anyone want to change it?” (Other than to refinish the wood finish to remove stains and scratches) so your before/after would show the reason why!!

    • Sounds good! Most of the furniture I work on is not in fantastic condition or is out of style. I love the pure wood look of some pieces and preserve that when possible. But the beauty of paint is that they can have a new life looking great!
