Recent Finds

From reading my blog lately you may have noticed something unusual. 

Or rather the lack of something.

Curbshopping.

I know, right? 

I mean, the name of my blog is Confessions of a Curbshopaholic,  jeez. 

You’d think I’d show you some stuff once in a while for crying out loud.

Or maybe change the name of my blog.

Not to worry, I’m not totally recovered yet.  I’ve just been very picky about what I bring home.  Space is so limited as is time.

Sunday I found a couple things I found worth picking up.

First is this end table. 

It’s in perfect condition.  Just needs some sanding and painting. 

I loved the shape so in the van it went.  Another table at the same curb didn’t make the cut.  Too much work.

These next 2 pieces were at the same curb as the table.  I believe they were trellis’s, possibly from a porch.  They’re falling apart, but not rotted.  Just need some glue and screws to be useable again. 

They’re at least 8 ft tall.

Next are some items I found a couple weeks ago and tucked quickly into the garage.

This dresser (or chest of drawers) is a pretty solid piece.  The broken drawer on the bottom had all the pieces with it.

I especially fell in love with the duck knobs. :)

The lamp was rather different, I think it might be nice painted a solid color.

Or maybe even take it apart and make a vase out of it…..

This last piece might be puzzling to you, but it was one of my favorite finds.

It appears to be the bowl of a wheelbarrow, or a concrete mixing tub.

It’s perfectly rusted and I see it as a planter, probably on a pedestal.

Can you see it now?

That’s it.  Just a few little things to keep me in the game.

Nope, not recovered. 

Just pickier.

  1. Those trellis pieces are wonderful! Weren't you looking for something like that for your house?
    I especially like the upside down ducks. The dresser must have been enjoying a few beers before you found it passed out on the curb.

  2. So glad to see you are getting pickier Rose...lol. Love the bowl... I can see that with vinca draping over the side and some nice colourful flowers in the bowl... I would have grabbed that one for sure. Like the trellis pieces too...perfect for your secret garden perhaps?

    Hugs, Deb

  4. That rusty old wheelbarrow bowl would have jumped into my car also. It will make a perfect flower bed. I was hoping you hadn't fell off the wagon, the junk wagon that is. That's what Grampy calls it when I come dragging something home. He says he sees I've been out in the junk wagon. lol

  5. That side table does have a great shape! I really like the trellises, too. You found some good stuff!

  6. I love it all! Mostly, that someone loved the chest of drawers enough to "offer" it up to someone else. Had it been intended for that big garbage truck I don't think they would have tucked the pieces of the drawer inside of it. ;)
    I want to see that lamp when you're done with it, cause honestly, I'm not feelin' it. hahaha
    all the other stuff gets a thumb's up from this fellow junker!

  8. The last piece is my favorite and I would plant something pretty in it. The trellis's are cool too-I am all into spring but here it's 90 plus degrees right now.
