Vintage Estate Finds!

This summer we’ve been finding a few new vintage items to add to our home.  The first I have to share is this typewriter.  I fell in love with an $80 one at a local second hand store.  Sadly, it stayed there.  A few days later my husband knew what he had found when he was at an estate sale in our neighborhood.  $3 and he brought home a huge surprise for me!

On the way to the beach on our vacation my husband and I both saw this couch driving by.  Without hesitation we turned around and bought it for $20.  It had been in storage for years and has 8 pillow covers (I ditched the inserts) and needed a bit of wood repair.  Thank goodness Paul used to own a furniture restoration business.  What a deal!

Look at this beauty my man picked out as well.  He has a great eye!

Our mid-century modern couch reupholstery progress is at a standstill by choice. We just need to add the buttons, but now that we’ve put it in the living room we’ve moved on to new projects.

& to leave you with a little teaser, we put an antique tub in our backyard.  Here’s a picture of the beginning of the progress.  Antique bricks from our old downtown….

Are you a garage sale or an estate sale shopper?
