Thrift Finds Made Of Wood

I have found some rather nice things lately made of wood, so I decided to devote a post to them.
A Simply Shabby Chic (Rachel Ashwell for Target) frame, a black wooden frame that I stuck some pretty scrapbook paper in, a wooden plate that is a lovely example of pyrography with a painted design, and an useful old file box:
A very nice utiltarian wooden rolling cart:
A mug tree that I spray-painted red and a cute chair, just right for a doll:

A great cubby organizer. I have two that are very similar to this (except they are stained wood, not painted black) that I bought at Pottery Barn a number of years ago. They used to call them a "Postman's Box". The back isn't wood, but that doesn't bother me. It's nice:
And a nice, well-made heavy maple chair. I'm thinking I want to paint it; I haven't quite decided yet:
It's a good solid, sturdy chair.
There's something to be said for being solid and sturdy, don't you think? Even if your "outsides" might need to be spruced up a bit?

Great stuff. Love the old chair. I think a paint job will be welcomed. Love T

Oh, I think that chair should be red!! LOL about being sturdy!!

Wish you would have gone to the Faire! I would have loved to have met YOU, too!

The recipe book for the cookies is a small paperback one titled Tested Recipes for Successful Baking. It promoted Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and was published in 1936.

Thank you for visiting!

I love the chairs. I'm a chair crazy person and the smaller the better. That little red chair is sooo cute. I would hang it on my wall somewhere.
You know...the small ones make good little shelves.
