So here is Part 2 (about 4 months late). Thanks for being patient although I'm sure you forgot about Part 2 ALONG time ago lol!!
At the time I started this post, I was unable to take all of my photos as large items had been placed in the barn and I didn't have access to them. My hope was to obtain these photos for the post but they'll have to wait for another day. I did manage to move a couple pieces of furniture since then which I'm including in this post. My daughter and granddaughter were also unexpectedly moving in at that time so everything was put on hold.
I'm on week 2 of my vacation right now, week 1 being my getaway and week 2 involving work around the property, barn, etc. I was working outside until the rain came. I'm hoping to move onto Plan B. But first...why not finish this post.
This dresser was purchased for $5.00 at the same garage sale as Part 1. It was nearing the end of the sale and I picked up this cutie for $5.00. Unfortunately, it's missing the handles on the middle drawers. My hope is to use it in my craft room. I had previously purchased the antique sewing machine for $10.00 at a flea market. It's not in working order but it doesn't matter as I had purchased it for decorative purposes only.
I also purchased this chair at the beginning of the sale so I had to pay full price, it costs a whole $10.00. I think my hubby said it was solid oak but I can't remember back that far haha!! It's a very solid and heavy chair. I may paint it but that won't be for a while. I'm just itching to paint things.
I love the details on the base of the chair.
After buying the first box of goodies for $5.00 in Part 1, I went back in for a second box as you couldn't beat the price. This wooden bowl is my favourite out of my second box. From what I can tell, the bowl and paddle are antiques. Someone had stained both of them an orange/brown shade with a very high gloss finish. For that reason, it may not have appeared that they were old (I hope they are antiques). If you look closely, you can see the aging. I'm hoping to refinish both pieces.
You can really see the gloss on the paddle, it's not showing on the bowl but it's basically the same.
You can see the cracks/lines on the bottom of the bowl which makes me believe it is actually an antique butter bowl. The cracks don't go right through, it appears to be in very good condition.
Near the end of the sale, we found out how they were going to dispose of the remaining items. I had looked at these wooden boxes a few times but they had rusty nails in them. I decided to dump out the nails as they would be recycled and buy the boxes. I should have kept the nails but they were in terrible condition. The photo doesn't quite show the paint colour on the boxes but they're a pretty blue. I would like to leave them as is but they were written on as they were part of someone's workshop. Another painting project perhaps?
I have no idea what this is lol!! I was loading up my box and thought, you know...maybe I can use this as a perch on a birdhouse or something.
These are the items I purchased in box number 2 which also cost $5.00 for everything (not including the jar the flowers are in, that was already mine). Four of the plates are Ironstone.
Thanks for dropping by to view Part 2.
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN!!!!!
