So as I mentioned in my last post, Jennie and went junkin last weekend and found some great stuff. Here are the other things we found:
Jennie found this cute sign! She'll be cookin' dinner at least once a week now...on Thursdays at 7!
I found this great galvanized metal tool box. (It came with bow; I just haven't taken it off yet.)
For now, it's sitting under my bench in the entry. That probably won't be it's permanent home.
love the tough rusty handle and I have a cool old lock for it (but no key so I'll have to be on the lookout for an old lock WITH a key)
Jennie found this cute little sign.
I'm really liking that cute little sign.
Jennie also picked up this cute little old metal shovel. It's a little apple green at the top on this side and orangey-red on the other. Our favorite part?...the two little black stripes on it. We loved those little stripes. (we're crazy and we know it. Who else would get so excited about two little stripes)
I got this weathered blue shutter. I love the color but it was really chippy as in chipping off everytime I moved it. So, I had to seal it well before moving it into the house.
The big glaring wall space between the chest of drawers and the clock was awful. The shutters seem to fill it in without taking away from the clock. It looks much better in person. I just couldn't seem to capture it with my less than spectacular photography skills.
I'm linkin' up to Funky Junk's SNS #53!
Great finds! I love it all!ReplyDelete
It goes great with the clock. Love the old tops too. They are hard to find. When I find them they are pricey. Good place for the metal box.ReplyDelete
So many great finds! I especially love the Service Cafe sign. I'd like to cook on the same schedule.ReplyDelete
I really like your shutter and the clock is wonderful!!ReplyDelete
You guys did make some great finds. Good for you both in finding homes for everything already as well.ReplyDelete
OH MY GOSH I need to go out searching with you! Those are soo awesome! So jealous. :)ReplyDelete
They're all great finds, but I adore the Service Cafe sign! And I love that you love the two little black stripes on the shovel ... makes perfect sense to me!!!ReplyDelete
Love the old tool box - I've got several old tool boxes that I just love.ReplyDelete
LOVE the cottage sign & shutter! :)ReplyDelete
I can never find great old signs like that that don't cost an arm and a leg. Definitely on my wish list. The old metal box it great too! And the shovel? Well my eye went right from that apple paint to the two little stripes!ReplyDelete
Gina-- I made the bathroom sign by getting that image, printing it out, and mod podgeing it onto a piece of tile. If I were to do it again, I'd think of a different way I think. Maybe even the little dudes cut in vinyl.?. Hmm. (p.s. I have the image if you want it)ReplyDelete
Oh, man you found the cutest stuff. I love all of it. I might have had to arm wrestle someone for the Cottage sign if I’d been along. And I really like the homes you found for all of it. I still have my weekend finds in box. I’d better get busy.ReplyDelete
You found some great stuff. I'm intrigued by the last item you found! I can't wait until you reveal what it is. I like the shutter hanging below the clock - it looks great.ReplyDelete
I meant to come back and comment on part 2 and...umm...well, I got distracted. There may have been a chocolate cookie in the kitchen calling me.ReplyDelete
But all those things are so lovely - I want that tackle box. Even with the bow!
I love old galvanized pieces - the tool box is great.ReplyDelete
The shutter does fill that spot nicely. And I love the wire basket on that table.
Great pickins!! Love the color of the old shutter and the little shovel is too cute! Very happy I stopped by!ReplyDelete
You did a great job putting all of this together!! It looks GREAT! I really love that clock!!ReplyDelete
Yu've got a great eye for junkin'! all these pieces are wonderful! Nice job putting them to use right away.ReplyDelete
I love all your great finds.That shutter is yummy!!ReplyDelete
Wonderful finds, I love that galvanized box, it looks great right where you have it. The sign is wonderful, too! Your shutter makes for a perfect vignette on that little chest with the clock! That looks so good!ReplyDelete
love tha last idea.ReplyDelete
And is the clock something you made??? I LOVE it!
