Some recent treasure finds...

Let's start with this cute little footstool I found at a garage sale. I LOVE the woven top.



I wasn't too crazy about the light bamboo base, though. Too much tan. So I spray painted it and I love the results.



And how 'bout this dresser and this bunny I've had around for a while. I got the bunny at Goodwill and the dresser off Craigs List for $10.


I FINALLY got the dresser done yesterday. I will probably get new handles, but for now the old ones spray painted in a brushed nickel finish will work nicely.

I love how this detail stands out now that the horrible rag painting finish is covered up.


And this bunny looks so much more sophisticated now, all dressed up for Easter.


And lastly, here are some pieces for my china hutch that I've collected from Goodwill and yard sales.

I love the ironstone tureen. And the pitcher/vase. Who am I kidding. I love them all.

My best find recently is not ready to show yet, but I am SO excited about it. I can't wait to share!

*Sorry about the poor quality photos. I'm still trying to find a good spot in my house for photographing stuff.

Nice finds!
I love what you did with the foot stool and I am totally jealous of your soup tureen!

The dresser is so pretty now. Amazing how paint can change so much. I love the detail on the top drawer. I also love how you paired the window frame mirror and the wood detail around it. So creative. :) Cant wait to see your other fave find when it is ready.
