Furniture Finds

Since I am traveling for my work pretty much until December 9 (I'm home for 2 weeks in November), I can't post about my usual projects.  Today I thought I would share with you what I have waiting for me to work on when I return home.  I have purchased most of these pieces at estate sales on the last day for unbelievable bargains!  Some I have ideas for already.  Others will "speak" to me as I get started on them.  My husband keeps telling me I'm forbidden to buy another piece of furniture until I move some out. He says I've gotten obsessed carried away with my bargain hunting.   I just give him that "look", and he gives in. :)  

So here are my finds..................

Mid-Century Modern Gossip Bench.  What a fun piece!
I think I'll go with some bright colors on this one.

I have learned since I bought this, that it is Waterfall furniture.
 I haven't decided whether to paint it or restore it.

Matching vanity.

This coffee table is huge!  The top is pretty scratched up, which
is hard to see in this picture.  Look at those roomy drawers!

I'm thinking a glossy finish for this one.  And shiny silver for the handles.

Got this one the day before I left town.  It is solid wood
 (looks like oak) and the drawers are dovetail construction.  It's a beauty!

A closer look.

OK, maybe my husband is right about getting carried away with my furniture purchases.  I actually have a cute little drop leaf table I haven't gotten a picture of yet.  Well, I'll definitely have plenty of work cut out for me when I get home.  I can't wait!!!!!

Please leave some comments with your ideas!

Thanks for stopping by.

They're all beautiful pieces to work with, good buys. The 6th photo does has a "modern flashy look" it's going to be a fun piece to work with. But whatever you do, I'm sure they will all turn our great. Have fun and thanks for sharing.
