My sharp-eyed daugther-in-law spied something curbside she thought I'd like to take my sander to.
Look at those good bones on this coffee table! I don't know if it is truly mid-century modern, but it sure has the looks of it.
Solid wood, well-constructed and I think in pretty decent shape for something that most likely spent a good deal of time outside.
I have friends who are now thinking, "she's going to paint it!" Nope.
I'm going to strip it, sand it, stain it, wax it.
Hopefully bringing it back to it's original beautiful luster.
What say you out there - is it MCM? Would Don Draper like it?
Two more fun finds in a thrift I dove into in Long Beach when we were away a couple of weekends ago.
I have diligently been looking for a proper set of fireplace tools at garage sales and thrifts.
They were right there when I walked in!
Wrought iron. Perfect! $15. Sold!
As Mr. T paid the lady for it I happened to spy a gem among the purses hanging on the wall. At first I just liked the combination of straw and patent-leather and then I saw the tell-tale, MK.
Was sure it was going to be out of my price range.
It's mine now, it was clean and I can fit all my "stuff" in it.
All proceeds from this particular thrift went to benefit women and children.
Have you found anything fun/thrifty lately?
