This poor chicken doorstop had lost her proud look. She needed eyes and the stuffing worked back into position.(Cost $1) I also got found two neat pottery bowls (cracks in them, but they will look great on Mr's Farm Tables)(Cost $5 for both) an old fashioned egg beater with faded green handles and a Jamacian doll that reverses to another figure when you turn her upside down.(Cost $3 for both)
After a much needed neck massage, Mrs Chicken is looking better.
I went through my button collection, looking for just the right ones for eyes. I chose the two on the right. Oh, and yes, Starbucks played a big roll in the hunt this morning.
Drawers, drawers... we always need drawers for tables and... these have the same drawers runners that our drawers in our house have, we need to use them to replace some broken ones. (its hard to find hardware that is over 30 years old that fits)
Here are two casement type windows, pretty good shape, especially when they are cleaned up. Some people like to use them for a room divider, put a mirror inside of them and hang them, etc. I have seen painting on the glass also. I may try that if I get the OK from Mr.
Now, don't laugh! But this old bathroom vanity will have a new life soon. I think it will be the bottom for a small hutch. Add a small bookcase on top, perhaps some "feet", of course a back, some paint, too, and there you have it...
Well, we need to get busy and transfor this
junk into treasures for someone.
Have a great day.
