Not that I don't love a good Easter Egg Hunt...but this weekends JUNK HUNT was even better!
We hit out FIRST yard sale of the season and scored this beauty! It was already painted and so I just came home and hit it with the sander and some stain and she was ready to go!
SOLD!!Here is the haul from Sunday!! I have yet to decide which one is my fav. If I went by price, the old Hoosier would win hands down! The guy didn't want to pack it up and take it home so you know what that means.......CHA-CHING!
I love the color and it still has the sifter inside . It will make a great display.

If I went by the chippiest, this old white Tennessee cupboard would win for sure! Talk about HEAVY...ugh! It has quite a few shelves inside that make it great to store blankets, quilts, towels, etc..

If I were vote for the most awesome original finish..this pink metal cabinet would win the race!

Check out the crazing.....

Don't you love the color underneath??

THen, if I were to judge for the fanciest hardware...well the little old washstand stands alone. The color was great, the door is made out of an old crate ~ you can see some of the lettering on the bottom
~ and the hardware was so fancy schmancy on the drawers! Plus it's chippy, crazed, bumpy and lumpy

I had to hog tie a guy to be able to buy the basket on the left! Just kiddin (kind of)! He didn't want to sell it and was getting sick of people asking him how much it was ! Weird right? Why do people put things out that AREN'T FOR SALE??? Anyway he turned into a sweetie and said "here, but don't tell anybody where ya got it from!"
Well I let him loose and ran off!! LOL!

And finally and old drying rack in chippy old white paint. She is missing an arm but heck she's got 7 more so I figured she still had a lot of life left. Plus did I mention she was chippy?

Okay, that's it chicks! I am off to run errands today and work on cleaning some of these finds and doing a few make-overs on the heap of stuff that's in the garage!
Hope your day is great!!

Sure wish I could find the same junk sales as you :) Funny what we consider treasures, others consider junk. I can't choose one thing, I love them all!
