Junkin' Monday #7


These two mommas had a very busy weekend. Lots of driving to tests, volunteer commitments, Homecoming game and Dance, plus a very early morning spent at the wet and cold soccer field. So the Junkin' Gods rewarded us with a short but always inspiring trip to one of our favorite antiquing spots, Country Roads in Orange, CA where we were able to find some "Need" and some "Want" pieces...

The Needs are:
A coffee table that we will use in the Family Room Makeover we are working on...
Great lines, perfect size, not too deep just like we needed it...

Not the best picture, garage lighting not cooperating!
It will be painted and lightly distressed to show the yellow paint underneath...

The second Need:

Some vintage bottles soon to be altered and delivered to The Cottage in Laguna Beach...
Love making these!

Now the Wants:

A large, vintage Open sign.
I bought it with my kitchen in mind, but I think it will be living in our family room. Love the bold letters, the chippy paint of course and the black trim...

And the last Want is this cute adorable pair of shoes for Clara's collection...

As you know, she has LOTS of them, but this is the first pair with "platforms"...CUTE!!!

How's that for a short trip?

Now it's your turn...show us your weekend treasures...
Link and visit..
Inspire and be inspired!

Ok Country Roads is an all day rummage sale...You must have been very good girls to not spend the day there! Glad you found the perfect table...If I lived closer you might find your self on the News describing the red head bandit that stole your OPEN sign!!! Could I go to jail for that???

Love the shoes Clara...you will have to create a post of your collection. Another collection we have in common... adore childrens shoes.


Joy....always

I linked the wrong post...duh, I feel like dork (where's my littel debbie cakes?). Anyway, I added the right post. Love that OPEN signage....I made my own little sign, but in trying to rusticify it, I sorta ruined it. I think I should stick with real vintage/rustic stuff. I love those bottles too...saw some at the antique mall, but couldn't think what to do with them....I'll be watching what you come up with :o)
peace.

I love those bottles. I bought some old ones last week, too. Unfortunately, I'm at work right now but I'll try to photograph them & post them next week.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Lori said...

Coastal Sisters said...

The old bottles were marvelous and the sign is fabulous!

I didn't go junking when I was home. Lisa and I visited every art supply store they had close by adn I had to ship TWO packages home. They are not here yet so I am trying to clean out my studio before it all gets here!

LOVE the table :)

Love the Open sign! Everything is fabulous - I've been to Country Roads - if only I could plop it right down here in the Northeast!

Killer Open sign! That's a want, need and must-have all rolled into one. Y'all never disappoint.
