I found a treasure chest yesterday at the thrift store! Well, looked like one to me 🙂
When I opened it up, it was pristine inside. Seriously, who gets RID of stuff this good?! Don’t they see how gorgeous it is??
|Solid wood chest, with brass handles, and wooden tray that moves left and right. Awesome!|
|A latch that can be locked and bolted to keep out nosey kids 😉|
|Do they even make handles this sturdy and tough anymore?? Doubt it.|
Funny how I find this stuff, and no one bothers to buy it, but wait till I get it to the counter to pay for it, and people “ooh” and “ahh” over it. Pretty hilarious, actually!
|My 2-year old wanted to play with his cars inside, but I didn’t want the lid to close on his fingers.|
It was marked $34.99….. And Mondays are 25% off Customer Appreciation Day, so you do the math.
And if you’ve browsed this blog, you would know that my hubby has a love-hate relationship with my thrift diving. LOL. I figure if I buy some cool stuff for him, like this chest to stash his own goodies, then maybe he would pardon some of the other stuff I lug home. Don’t you love my reasoning and tactics? 🙂 I think it’s working….
I went to the thrift store this weekend and saw THE most amazing desk, for $45. I literally had to talk myself out of it. All I could see is hubby’s disapproving scowl as I shove it in the garage with my other numerous upcoming projects.
However, when I told him about it later that day, he said, “Why didn’t you get it? I need a better, more sturdy desk for the office.” Well, gee, thanks, baby!! For making me regret not getting it.
I never would have thought it would still be there, but yep, there she was, tucked and hidden, waiting for me yesterday when I went back 🙂
Hubby even said HE wants to refinish it himself! Wow! Maybe I am finally getting some buy-in.
Did you guys find any cool stuff this weekend?? Please share! I love seeing other people’s “junk” finds!! 🙂
