Tuesday’s Treasures #9

Sometimes you find great stuff when you least expect it. Saturday morning I had planned on stopping at a few sales but ended up cleaning the front deck to get it ready for the summer. I had purchased some drill brushes for my cordless drill to help me clean the composite decking.

Chalk Painted Stand – A Makeover

I found this stand at a Thrifty Shopper that I don’t normally get to frequent last summer. It was only $4.99, if I am remembering correctly. The top was very rough and someone had carved a flower in one of the legs, but it is solid wood and made very well. Read more…
