I haven't hit as many sales in the past couple of weeks as I would like, but I did pick up a few fun items that will assume new identities in the future.
Before I move on to my newest finds, though, I have to finish a great little project I'm working on for my son's birthday. What do you get a 24-year-old graduate student who's taken up cooking and repurposing vintage furniture? Well, you'll see after Sam's birthday in October. Don't want to spoil his surprise.
So, here are a very few of my recent finds. And, while my vision for each isn't yet fully formed, I'm certain each is destined for makeover greatness.
These rusty, vintage industrial pulleys are, in a word, SWEET! Kinda steampunk-y. Sam has dibs on the two on the right. He has his own ideas for repurposing those bad boys. Because he lives two states away, he'll have to come pick them up. I'm not mailing these heavy suckers.
I think I know what I want to do with the vintage brass mailbox that is now a perfectly aged verdigre and the newer, but charming, hinged fireplace matchbox.
