Finds and a Table Redo

I found this old carved chair with down stuffing for $2 at a thrift shop!!!! Yes I said $2. Crazy!

Large 13 inch milk glass serving plate = $2. English transferware plate = $1.

Jars = $1 each. I have them full of cotton balls and Q-tips on the bathroom vanity.

Corelle plates = 14 @ 75 cents each. Large Corelle serving bowl = $2. I have been wanting these very plates for a long time. They are $3 a plate and $10 for the serving bowl at Walmart. I was in Goodwill and the employees wheeled out several bins of new stuff. I snatched these up fast. They look brand spankin' new.

Cake Platter = $3.50

Large French Toile Clock = $2

Large wood frame = $2.50.

Christmas bird nest = $1.

Two foot topiary = $3.50

Now for the table redo. It was a cute table the way it was. When I bought it I intended to keep it as is. It just works better for me as a sofa table. I bought the table at a yard sale a few months back for $20.

I really needed a sofa table and I didn't like how the table leaves covered the pretty legs so I removed the leaves, hinges and extra legs. I sanded it down and glued this wood decorative piece to the front. Then I gave it two coats of black paint. I love the way it turned out. Now I will have to come up with a project for the extra legs and leaves.
