Junkin' Monday #14


After 2 weeks of not Junkin' not even the cold weather was able to keep us away from the Flea Market!
We found some great stuff this time but we are sharing only a few because we didn't have enough time to photograph the rest before it got dark...sorry!

Our first treasure is an antique jewelry box in need of some serious TLC...

The trim around the edges was broken and it needed a good cleaning, but look at the amazing tray inside...and the cute little mirror!!

We love the hardware...

We added new-old trim and a crocheted piece with a vintage bling topping it all off...
It will be hard to let this one go!



Our second find came from the same booth, a wonderful and very interesting Italian sconce...

Metal and wood with beautiful original paint and the most perfect patina...

Don't you just love the colors?...We sure do!
Wired and ready to be enjoyed...



Our final treasure, a gilded floral lamp...
The base was exactly what we were looking for: a little shabby, a little glamorous...

...but the lampshade was a little too predictable.
In order to achieve the new look we are going for, we came up with something a little more unexpected...we got rid of the simple white satin cover and we dressed the lampshade "skeleton" with burlap, vintage lace and a fab vintage brooch with rhinestones...


Now is totally ready to be adopted by a good family...

Today's picks will help us add a little glam to our new Country Roads space!


Wondering what else we got?...You'll have to come back in a couple of days and take another peek...
Now, how about if YOU show US your new treasures?

You have some nice items in inventory. I, too, closed my retail stores and am doing much better just doing shows and internet. How about you?
