Yard Sale Furniture

I showed you part 1 of what I'd picked up while yard sailing a couple of weeks ago.  Here's the two furniture pieces that I found.
 
This chest needs a little work but overall it's in pretty good shape.
Price: $20.00
 





 
I got this bookcase at the same place.  The owner said his grandfather built it.
I originally got it for Kailyn's room and planned on painting it white, but, now I'm
having 2nd thoughts.   It's perfect cuz the shelves are big enough for toys and books.  
The 2 drawers would be handy for small things
 
Price: $15.00
 

 
 

 
(Sorry about the color on these last 2 pics.,)
 



 
 

 
 
I got this mantle for $50.00.  I debated getting it cuz it needs some work and it's more then I usually pay for things.   In the end, I couldn't pass it up because of it' wonderful patina.
 I ended up selling it on Craig's list for $115.00
 



 
 

 
 
 
This vintage locker was only $15.00.  If you love rusty and crusty, this one's for you!
If it doesn't sell on Craig's list, ( I've got it listed for $85.00),  I will probably sand it
down and repaint it.
 


 
 

I love the latch, sorry for the blur!
 

 
 
The inside is in pretty good shape except for the bottom shelf,
It's really stained with  paint etc.   
 
 

 
Till next time....

You've really found some great pieces, I never have that kind of luck at garage sales! I love the chest, the little door is very unique.

Thank you so much for your visits...somehow, I think you fell off my blogroll. I am trying to hit "follow" again but it is saying there are Blogger problems and to try again later, which I will. :)

XO,
Jane

Oh I would love love love to find a mantel like that! I don't think $50 is unreasonable, but I suppose that is because I would really want it:) Great finds!!

Great deals and great finds! I am so impressed that you sold your 50 mantle for 115. Now that is great profit and more money to keep getting more treasures!
