Happy Tuesday, dear friends!! Today I am finally sharing all the goodness that I was blessed with on Mother’s Day! A super sweet local reader of mine, Mary, messaged me the night before Mother’s Day asking if I would be interested in several antique pieces she had been storing in her garage. She was moving and would not have the space to take them with her. With all the thrift stores closed at the time, I was running low on inventory, so the timing was perfect. And how could my Hubby grumble about me filling the garage back up on Mother’s Day, right??
If you missed my post on Thursday, I shared this dressing table that belonged to Mary’s grandmother, also her namesake:
She had asked me how much I would charge to paint it for her, and of course I was happy to do it in exchange for her generosity. She requested a simple white makeover, my favorite!
You can see the whole reveal HERE.
When I was talking with my sister about how I was going to get these pieces home, she offered her husband and his trailer…
It worked perfectly!
And here is what was packed in there!
First up is this tall dresser:
It has veneer chipping in several places, but the beautiful carved detail at the bottom had me swooning!
There is also a long dresser to match:
I already have an idea for these two!
Up next is this gorgeous single bed:
Just look at those gorgeous details:
I also got this little table:
And this cute drop-leaf kitchen table:
This next piece might be my favorite! I love the lines of this dresser:
Isn’t it gorgeous?
It needs some work…
But I am hoping that will sand up nicely!
This dresser also has this gorgeous mirror:
It needs to be secured back together as the joints are all loose, but I can’t get over those beautiful details!
This dresser also has a bedside table to match:
We’ll see if I can reattach that drawer front.
And finally, this beautiful spindle headboard:
And thats what was packed on that trailer!
What a haul, right?? Thank you so much for thinking of me, Mary!!
I’ve got my work cut out for me with this group, but I am excited to get started! And I know my hubby is too since I pretty much filled our garage back up!
Some of these will be time consuming, so I will be working on these and my very first thrift store haul since the shutdown at the same time. There are lots of smalls in there to sprinkle in to buy me time for the larger pieces!
Here’s a peek of what I found that day:
I’ll be back to share all my finds that day on Thursday!!
UPDATE: See what I brought home from that trip HERE now!
See y’all then!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
