I love shopping for old things with a past, so I enjoy going to auctions, resale shops, consignment stores, and antique venues. Recently I attended an auction, blogged about here, and this was my exciting find, a lovely antique pine chest of drawers. It needs some clear wax, but I am too busy with a painting job to do that right now. Here it sits in our guest room.

My other recent find is a basket from the thrift shop. You might have recognized it from the post on my back porch redo, click here. When I found this basket, I decided it would be great to have on the back porch.

When we aren’t at the ranch, we cover the tables with tarps and remove all of the pillows and fabric. I needed a place to store the tarps when they weren’t in use. I thought this was wonderful for just that. I paid $75 for this one, which was a better price than what the baskets were going for at the auction.
I think it made for a great end table.
