Farm House Style Finds

4.25.2011

Well, I went back to the flea market that I went to a week ago and bought the two stools that I left behind the first time. I am glad they were still there. I am showing one of them today before I get a hold of it with some paint along with my other find, a vintage looking farm house style pitcher.


Don't you love it. It isn't old, but it looks old and that is good enough for me.


My eight dollar stool. Not bad this way, but I think I will be painting it.





Love the red checks around it. Perfect in my kitchen.


The pitcher was marked down from $32 to $20. Sold!




So have you done any junking lately? 

Only problem with junking is that I need to clear out the stuff I don't need anymore.
Mr. Savvy doesn't understand why I bring in more stuff and get rid of the old. I don't know why.
I just do. I know I'm not alone.

Enjoy your week!
Kim

  2. That pitcher looks so cute perched on that stool next to your aprons!

    Mr. M&M and Mr. Savvy should meet. They could commiserate with each other. I, too, bring stuff home from my thrifting trips and Mr. M&M just shakes his head.

    When I do part with things, I take the nicer things to a consignment shop that a local church runs to support its mission projects. I get half and they get half. Now, when I go shopping there, I usually just use some of my accumulated earnings to pay for my new finds.

    That's my favorite kind of recycling!

  3. My husband does the same thing with clothes. Buys new ones, takes the old (er, not so old) to the Salvation Army. And starts all over again. Some good-looking clothes somebody's wearing out there, cause he gets bored quick! Love your finds!

  8. You are sooo not alone! I'm finding and upcycling so many cool thrift store finds that I need a truck to take away all the old stuff. (that really isn't that old) I need to do a swap!

  9. Hi Kim,
    Too bad we can't all get together and swap out our "old" stuff. I recently redecorated with more ironstone and my silver pieces are now just sitting in the basement.
    Love the pitcher you found and can't wait to see your painted stools.

  11. Love the pitcher and the stool, mom bought me one at Walmart and it was a blond wood, then I painted it black now it's white, I'd never get rid of it! I'm anxious to see what you do with yours:)

  13. That is why I sell on consignment now! Thankfully Joe is just as bad about thrifting as I am. He found a five hundred dollar set of tools for five dollars last week and just had to get a fifty dollar battery for them. Not bad.

  17. I think that all men are alike when it comes to shopping. Why do you need......
    That pitcher is adorable. Great score on those stools.

  18. I know for a fact that I have to get rid of the old stuff, I don't have any room left for the new!

    The pitcher is cute! I love the farmhouse look. And it looks great sitting on your new {!} stool!

    Have a great week!

  21. Hi Kim, great bargains! I am sad that I didn't keep my MIL's stool when we were having an estate sale. Just had so much stuff and so little room....but now, seeing yours, I'm a little sad. Anyway, would love to come Satuday, but we will have the grandies arriving Friday night, and I just can't up and leave them Saturday morning. I will hope that the next get-together will work out for me. Linda

  22. Kim, Really cute pitcher! I've been reading your blog long enough to know that those barstools will have a coat of paint or two on them before the end of the week!! I am trying to get rid of some old things and making an effort to be very selective of what I bring home these days. There's only so much room so, I am keeping things that I really love... it's so hard.
    Have a great week,
    Lisa

  23. Wow, I have some catching up to do here, Kim! This pitcher is so cute & is so perfect in your kitchen. Can't wait to see what you do with the stool.

    You must have really enjoyed having your daughter & granddaughter for Easter. Little Leila is so adorable.

    I think it's so great that you have the bunny that your grandmother made. I love that kind of family history.

    Your verbena is so gorgeous. We have a different type that is extremely prolific here & grows into these giant bushes. They are also very thorny, but then everything has thorns in the desert. I'm going to see if I can find a different variety.

  41. The stool looks charmingly old and the pitcher is perfect! Have you ever thought about holding an on-line "yard sale" or auction for your best blogging buddies? :) Hugs, Kim

  42. Love the pitcher! It is perfect in your kitchen. I can't wait to see the stools when you are done with them. I think I'm going to have to have a sale (garage sale) in a few months. I like the joy of the hunt...but, I also need to get rid of some things. I think I'll slowly go through things this summer and have a sale in the fall. Ugh.
