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!
