This Is Why I Go To Garage Sales...

Recently I had a wonderful garage sale find... a beautiful old corner cabinet!  The back had a little separation of panels, which my husband repaired in about 5 minutes with a rubber mallet, and then 2 screws to hold the boards in place.  And it was $15!  Crazy, I know!  Finds like this are why I go to garage sales!


Beautiful leaded glass doors...



glass knobs...


A perfect place to store some goodies in our sunporch...








 It looks so pretty in a corner of the porch...




A pair of these window grates was in the free pile...




You really never know what treasures await...

I am joining~

Until next time...

  10. Oh my gosh, what a beautiful piece, Linda! I can't believe the price you got it for. Sometimes the furniture here is priced crazy at yard sales. These people think they are in an antique store selling furniture. Love, love the leaded glass doors. You've filled it with some pretty things that add a nice touch to your sun porch!

  11. I love old leather leaded glass doors, the feel of the worn weathered leather is so so different to new......& I spend ages restoring old leather chairs..

  17. Incredible! That's a wonderful piece. Your items look great In it. I agree about garage sales. When I have time, I'll be posting about the "Everything 75 cents" garage sale I went to last Saturday. Nothing as perfect as your cabinet, though.

  41. Your cabinet looks great! I love all the little things you have placed in there. The quilts and the blue glass! and of course the little needle point! All wonderful.
    I'm still on the look out for a 'grate' for my the wall behind my wood stove! I SO WANT to get something before next fall and possibly do a little something with the floor beneath it. Love the clock there.
