Thrifty Finds & A Work in Progress

I LOVE this part of the week!!! When Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality hosts "Today's Thrifty Treasures". Not only do I get show my thrifty finds but, I get to see what everyone else found!! And each week it gets bigger and bigger with more people joining! WOO HOO! So, if you found yourself some thrifty treasures this week, head on over to Rhoda's and share your treasures!!

I actually picked up these two crown crocks a couple of weeks ago at the sale I participated in but didn't get a chance to post them. These were definitely a thrifty score. . . .$5 each!! I haven't quite decided what I am going to do with them, maybe put a plant in one of them?!? Any ideas??

They're both in great condition, no cracks. . . . .

I actually bought six of these chairs. They are in very sturdy condition, very solid and not wobbly at all. I'm thinking of painting them black and recovering the seats in a black & white toile fabric I have. The best part. . . . . .$10 for all 6 chairs. Happy Dance!!

I have a table I bought a few months back and have been looking for chairs for it. Now I have them :)

Remember the foot board I showed you last week??? The one that I want to turn into a cottage sign?? Well, here is the head board to it and it's transformation. I will be painting this and distressing it also. I hope to have this finished in a couple of days.

Hope you all found some wonderful treasures!!! I'm off to do some painting :)

Until Later,



  1. Love the bench you are making! Wow - I will have to come back and see what all you are up to!

  2. Hi Toni,

    Love your crown pots and the bench you made.
    How clever you are to have made that.


  3. I really like your bench! Looking forward to seeing the chair redos also.
    Thanks for stopping by. No have not named her yet, but have come up with some ideas. :)

  4. Hi. I found your blog through "Anything Goes Here" blog. Had to comment on your thrifty treasures. What an incredible deal on the chairs. After seeing how you transformed that headboard into that bench I have no doubt those chairs will look fabulous when you are finished. I am very impressed! I'm going to follow your blog and check out the results of your future transformations. Stop by my blog for a visit.... I've had my blog for a little over three weeks now...I think I'm finally getting the hang of this blogging thing!

  5. Those same crocs are marked between $15 and $30 each at my Salvation Army (I thought it was a THRIFT store!!!). There are 3 there. :) So you got a deal!! Thanks for the visit!

  6. Toni, Your bench is going to be fantastic! I saw a headboard last week at the GW, but had no idea how to transform it. Would you be willing to give a little tutorial? You found a bargain in the three chairs- they look as if they need a little(?) work! *grin* Have fun.

  7. Wow! What a deal! 6 chairs for $10! Can't wait to see how they turn out. Love the headboard seat!~Patti

  8. Great deal on those chairs. I have been wanting a bench. You could post it on my KNOCK OFF KNOCK OUT.

    Come for a visit.
    Its So Very Cheri

  9. Oh what beautiful finds! Hope to see them on Transformation Thursday soon!

  10. The crocks are great! And those chairs will look fabulous.

    Awesome job on the bench!

  11. I love those crocks!!!! I think Heather Bullard has one similar to that posted one time on her blog. They are great to even put up on a shelf and hide things inside of pencils and notepads.

    Great chairs and LOVE that bench! You are too crafty!


  12. Those crocks are gorgeous, and what a fab buy on the chairs; they are going to be lovely when you are done with them.
    I'm really impressed with your bench! Wow -- very creative!
    You've got skills!!!


My door is always open & I hope you will come by often to visit, maybe have a cup of coffee or tea with me. ~Hugs, Toni~
