Just a Few "Gone Junkin" Finds!

Hi Friends
Hope your week is off to a great start.

Last week I found some great new treasures for my etsy shoppe and
perfect for a redesign.
I can hardly wait to get started

You know I love to find these old vintage lunch boxes.
Paint, trims and more will give these  "a new life"


What a treasure this leather and wood box is.
Lots of plans for this beauty.



This vintage bowl has lots of charming distress and I love the raised flower design.


Perfect for a fall shabby rag basket is this wire treasure with handle.
I was also thrilled to find this bag lot of wine corks.


This little shelf  with a plate tilt is going to be wonderful repainted with chalk paint.
Great details on the bottom.


Love this darling little butlers helper, or vintage server.
Whatever it was used for in the past, it has a "new life" coming soon.


This little wood box is a fun find and perfect to accent and change the paint color leaving the 
graphics in place. 
I think this one will be perfect to hold crochet hooks or sewing machine bobbins.


LOVE this rug and I am thinking of a chic painted graphic around the flowers for this beauty, which is perfect for fall. Great Autumn colors.


The best find of the week is this wonderful wood night stand.
Inside was marked "Made in Brazil"
I have plans for a complete redesign with chalk paint, distress
and accents
Maybe I'll take out the drawer and replace it with a basket drawer or leave it and change the knob.
Not sure, but I will share the "after" when I complete this wonderful find for a guestroom
night stand.



I better get to creating. 
These goodies (except the night stand) will find places on the shelves in my etsy shoppe soon.
Nothing like a few new treasures to motivate my creativity.

Have you found any junkin treasures lately?

If so, Happy Creating and Decorating!

p.s. as always thank you for your comments and a warm welcome to all new followers.

Wow those lunch boxes sent me back in time! I remember those when I was a kid- adults used them for work. I like that wood/leather caddy- those are cute for wine. That yellow wood box is my favorite- that color on it is so vintage- I love it. What a perfect accent for a sewing room.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

My dear, YOU SCORED! I did too. I found a French table ( I think I told you) in the trash that said, "FREE!" And then I found....get this....a crystal chandelier! I took off all the perfect crystal pendants and did I ever have fun using them to embellish existing chandeliers in my home.

You are going to have a blast! I am on my lunch break before I go into my first course of the day. AHHHH!

You found some great items and you are so creative imagining a new lease of life for these treasures! My favourite here is the long wooden box with the lovely vintage image.

Marcia Pilar said...

Oh, I can't wait to see what you'll do with that nightstand, Celeste, and I know it will turn out as gorgeous as ever. I came across a couple of special finds at the thrift shop the weekend before last, Mr Oakley (our new hall tree in last week's post), and a vintage mail holder that was quite a mess until Mr G got a hold of it. I love that leather wood box.
Happy Labor Day, my friend.

Art and Sand said...

Lots of fun junkin'.

I just read your story over at Junk Chic Cottage. I am surprised that you must be close in age to me. We celebrated 43 years of marriage last April. You look so young in all your pics - what's your secret?

Blackberry Lane said...

Hi Celeste, How fun all these treasures will be to repurpose. Wishing you a nice weekend.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh wow, this vintage lunch box is so cool - I remember those! I like the wine corks too. Jess collects unique and pretty wine corks and displays them on her bulletin board. You found so many great things, Celestina. I really like this wood box also.

love,
~Sheri

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Wow! I want to go junkin with you! You found some great stuff! I love the box, reminds me of paper dolls? The rug, I have almost bought at Walmart. It's pretty and how cool that you got it way cheaper I'm sure. I can't wait to see what you do/ paint on it :-) The lunch boxes are great too! You are a professional junkin shopper ;-)
