Garage Sales, Resale Shops, Antiques OH MY

So I have always loved the saying "One mans trash is another mans treasure" and lately I have been rounding up the treasures! I discovered a whole new side of Kerrville that I fell in love with, I'm going to just call it the junkin' side. 

If you ever have the chance go to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore you will not be disappointed.  There are so many cool finds, some new, some used, and some really old. 

A few weeks ago I went in a bought some old sconces, a chandelier and some really cool finials.  I should have taken Sam's pickup!  However it was probably easier or my pocket book since the prius can't hold that much stuff.

We are in the process of building a house so I am determined to make sure it has plenty of character. I do not want it to look cookie cutter or like a brand new house for that matter.   

Once I get some of my "treasures" fixed up I will be sure to post before and after pictures. Right now we have just finished one piece of furniture, I say "we" but really Sam did it all, I just found it.

Sam's gun cabinet before

And after he burned and stained it.


I have played with this picture for thirty minutes I can't get it to upload right side up so I'm sorry your going to have to tilt your head :)

Happy Easter!
