Whoo-boy! Have I caught auction fever!
Last night, Scott and I hit another auction.
I so wish I wasn't selling half the stuff, so I could share the prices we paid.
That's half the fun!
I find the more I do this, the more picky I am getting
and the less I'm willing to pay for stuff.
That's a good thing. ;)
Of course, it helps that the workshop is packed to the gills,
but I do realize when I need to let things go and move on.
However, stuff just wasn't selling last night,
so we got some awesome stuff for some unreal prices.
Without further ado, check out these awesome scores:
Mine to keep, since I'm selling my wall paper buffet. :)
|Two leaves. Six Chairs.|
The man who owned the items being auctioned had A TON of wood-working stuff. I'm wondering if this table and chair set was handmade. On the bottom of one of the chairs I found written in pencil, "Chairs Completed Feb. '60".
|Hideously ugly, right?|
The glass is going to have to go, but I see potential. :)
A guy asked me if I wanted it, since it came in a group with some other stuff.
He said he was going to burn it.
I was like, "Sure. I'll take it." ;)
Doesn't he know bamboo is HOT right now? ;)
And the total score and
my absolute favorite of the night:
I've learned to school my features during auctions,
but I did grin pretty big when Scott got this one. :D
Ethan Allen, baby!
It'll be hard to re-do this one and let it go.
Scott says he knew he was going to have problems
with me doing that.
He knows me well! HA HA HA!
Thank goodness he's around to keep me on the straight and narrow because honestly, I'd probably want to keep EVERYTHING.
And also a couple of dressers and a mirror from an auction
last week that I haven't shared yet...
The mirror is being turned into a chalkboard,
since it's REALLY ugly.
And then a few smalls (Oh Lord, I'm talking like Mike and Frank HA HA HA!) that I get to keep. YIPPEE!
That's a WOODEN pulley. Awesome!
Now to figure out something cool to do with it.
I know I saw something, somewhere. ;)
And I've always wanted a yoke after I saw what my friend, Jess, did with one.
Totally copying. LOL!
Oh - and I almost forgot this dealy...
They're replacing all the power line poles on our road, so when one of the guys came up to the house yesterday to tell me we'd be without power for a little bit while they switched the lines over, I asked what they do with the big empty wire spools. They actually re-use them, but he said he could at least give me one. YAY!
Nothing is better than FREE!
I want to use it for a patio table.
Scott wants me to use it in the shop to put our big island top on it,
that we salvaged from our kitchen.
Something tells me, that's probably where it'll go.
Of course, I have to actually get to painting and SELL some of the stuff that's accumulating, so I can make room for it.
Our idea is to buy in the summer, while there's a lot of auctions
and paint through the winter.
and paint through the winter.
I'd say we have a good head start. ;)
I now only have a very small corner to work in. LOL!
And three more chairs to do for a client.
Well, I'd better go do SOMETHING...
Like finish cleaning out the end of the shop, so we have more room. HA HA HA!
Have a fantastic day, y'all!
