"Hotel De L'Avenir" Side Table

Here's a simple little side table that I picked up recently at a local estate sale.  Nothing like a good, solid antique table with good bones.  Other than a little tightening of a leg, she was practically flawless.

Here she is before:

And here she is now:

"God Save The Queen" Chair

I guess I started this chair with the spirit of the 2012 Olympics in mind.  After I started it I began to have second thoughts since one of the pages I follow on Facebook suddenly announced that they were "So over Union Jack" now.  Well, I was already into it so I decided to press on and am ever so glad I did too.  She turned out great!

I found this cane back chair that had a whole in the cane.  Not experienced yet with replacing (I'm studying though), I decided to reupholster with a cushion instead.

MORE awesome freebie finds..... and Cake!

So it's been a rather interesting week in the land of V.R.  School is getting ready to start, and thus having four children, I'm trying to get them clothed and outfitted with gear without dancing near the treacherous waters of bankruptcy.

The "freebie" gods were listening!

I wish they would pimp my ride into something like this when I go pickin though!

A Few "Roadside Pickup" Transitions

Don't you love a good find on the side of the road?!  I'm itching for a ticket because I do so many U-turns for these things.  My latest was a pair of corbels on the side of the road on my way to Columbus, GA Monday.  My only question is "Why do people throw out the most usable things?"

"Because the Universe secretly knows who they actually belong too!!"
