super {flea} sunday.

Happy Sunday again loves! I'm coming to you today amidst a "tornado watch". Ooo! I'll admit it is super windy outside and the water out on the bayou is choppy, but I think we'll be ok.

How was your weekend? Did you do any thrifting or {flea}ing? My friend Christy and I went to the Goodwill after I went to the doctors on Friday and found some complete awesomeness!

You're looking at my brand new end table and coffee table.

The kiddos school chair was only $10 smackaroos and right now it's a rusty red orange color. I don't know how I feel about the color and the way it matches my decor, but I adore the way the paint is chipping. I may strip the wood and stain it; the frame is metal and that will probably get a shiny black coat.

The trunk is an old Army trunk, probably tossed to the side by some retiree. I was able to snag it for $15 bucks and it's the perfect hight and size we need. The best part are the old stencils on the sides and an id plaque. For now this is going to stay as is and if it doesn't work out, my husband has a new trunk to keep all of his gear! Woot!

I bought another little something too, but I'll leave it til next {flea}. What are your plans for this week? Since I'm feeling better I'm going to attempt some crafting, knitting, and perhaps a tutorial. xoxo

OOOOO I love the school chair! It's really quite cute! Why is it that chipping paint can be so attractive? Someone bought an old toy truck at work today, and it would have been crap had it not been for the dusty blue paint chipping, revealing the white layer underneath.

I'm so envious of your finds!

Hello! Nice to meet you! Just found you through the Adventures in Lace KAL. Welcome!
Actually, I just went thrifting today and got two lovely sweaters (that will soon be lovely yarn) and a book. I love thrifting, but it takes patience, doesn't it?! I love your recent acquisitions. Very pretty! The thrift store near me doesn't carry any furniture, but then again I have no room in my apartment for more furniture, so that's probably good. :-)
