Good Monday! I had quite the weekend with my kitchen project. Putting up shelves led to painting the kitchen, which led to cleaning the kitchen cabinets and all the doors/frames/molding (thank you to whomever invented Mr. Clean sponges), which has led to a purge of all things not needed. Which, in my case, is a lot. Oh, what to do with the ceramics from art classes through the years? No, really – what to do?
I did manage to get out on Saturday to a garage sale and estate sale in my neighborhood. My daughter and I were driving by the garage sale doing the whole “quick drive-by scan” and it looked pretty dismal. I was about to keep driving but as we were actually there already, we decided to quickly stop and take a look. There was the typical junk but as I approached the top of the driveway, right next to the garage door, was this sweet little table.
With fantastic detail…I asked “How much?” and the kind woman said, “Oh, it’s part of a set that’s upstairs. It was my husband’s grandmother’s bedroom set from the 1930’s. Do you want to see the rest?” Um…yeah! So, upstairs we trooped and there was a matching, gorgeous vanity/desk… A hanging mirror… As well as a very large dresser. Sorry for the bad pic but you can see the size and detail…
Just look at the sweet detail on the top drawer!
I bought the lot! What was almost a drive-by turned into a beautiful score! Seek and ye shall find!
We then went down the street to the “Estate Sale” which turned out to be a glorified garage sale. Fine by me, I already had a great day!

Oh wow! My jaw is still dropping! To find just one of those pieces would have been a score! You hit the jackpot! 🙂 Well done!
What a score! I love when good things are found a yard sales. Happy days for you!
Love your new photo! Looks like you really look!
That vanity/desk. It’s going to be dynamite when you get finished with it.
Not so sure that is a good thing, LOL!
Now THAT is a beautiful set!!! Can’t wait to see what you make of it! All those little pottery things the kids bring home? I have a stash of them in a buffet drawer in my kitcehn! LOL!! 😉 Can’t ever get rid of them.
Thanks, Tina Marie! I have put the artwork away in a safe box. I can never get rid of it, either!
WOW….what a beautiful find….love, love the furniture…
Oh my goodness, I cannot believe your find! Amazing detail on the furniture, can’t wait to see what you do with it.
