Today I thought I would show you one of the fantastic finds from our Kelowna trip. As I mentioned in the last post, I went thrift shopping with my Mother in law (it's sort of a tradition for us) and we were very successful! We found so many great things! On one trip to the Salvation Army we found an old carpenter's toolbox. It's a big wooden box, with chippy paint and old hardware. I knew I had to take it home. Actually, someone almost took it while it was waiting near the till for me. It was a close call! I wasn't sure where this ol' thing would go, but I knew that a piece like this would find a home in our cottage without much trouble!
Once I got the toolbox home, I found a spot for it at the end of our bed where it holds some pillows, or whatever else may land on it. I've been looking for a bench or trunk that would go here, but I like how this worked out. Oh, and here is the rest of our bedroom while we're at it. It's kind of a work in progress!
I'm thinking of painting some numbers on the front. Kind of like this... what do you think?
Our antique dresser is one of my favourite pieces of furniture! It was given to us by some family friends. So generous!
I've still got to do something about those wires. Any ideas?
Just for fun, I'll show you the before shot of our bedroom...
And after again, to leave you on a good note...
So that is part one of my Kelowna finds plus a mini tour of our bedroom. I'm excited to show you what else we found! Have a good Monday!
