MORE JUNK PICTURES!!!!! PART 2!

So we decided to take Karens Explorer when we went junk hunting on Wednesday! I loved it!! I used to have an Explorer and I was always amazed at how much I could cram into it........it made me miss mine like crazy!!! I think what I miss the most is the rattle of all the junk behind me as I would drive along. As you can see...we loaded up!!

TA-DA!!! It was another great day!! The horse is my favorite! I had my eye on him at another antique mall right after Christmas and need-less -say he was out of my price range significantly. Well my friend Wendy met up with us for lunch and she hauled us over to the new antique mall ......all of the sudden she asks me if I had seen the rocking horse....well wouldn't ya know it was the same one I had drooled over at the other place only it was MARKED DOWN like 65% OFF! YIPPEE!!!

My other fav is this old metal drain thing....at least I THINK that's what it is. It is grungy and chipped up and totally industrially cool. Would make a great place to store paintbrushes!


The black bench is made from an old bed! All I have to do with this is make a pad...perhaps black and tan check or black toile??? What do you think?? The molding pieces are being worked on as we speak.....I'll show you those later....the rusty basket needs a little help on the bottom.,..I might make something new for that , the old wood hangers are from a dry cleaners , the little black drawer cubby is tin, and the old quilt is made from old feed sacks!



Okay....see the little chippy folding rack to the right of the table?? Any ideas what it is?? The top is shaped like a kidney bean sort of and I thought maybe a basket had fit in there. The description on the price tage said luggage rack BUT I don't buy it....great idea though I just think it's for something else. Okay chicks....that's all for now.... Part 3 is coming soon.....!!!!! Hope your day is great!

OMG! I love the bench you got! The first i thought that kidney shaped thing was a child's ironing board w/ no top.If that was a luggage rack,it would have to be a old time one b/c i never seen one that small.Unless,it's not that small.That would be neat to find a basket or tin bucket that would fit in there though.Natalie,
Have a "BLESSED" weekend!

Love the bargains! Perhaps your stand might have once belonged to a baby basinette. Hope I spelled that one right.
