Recent Finds

Sunday, May 20, 2012

The shopping gods have been smiling on me lately!  It's been a while since I've shared my favorite finds- and there are some good ones - so let's get to it!

I've been lucking out in the art department.  See below.

I was very excited to find this original signed abstract painting by Mid-Century artist Tom Hayward.  Although the colors are neutral, it's a bold piece and came complete with the original chrome frame. 

Also found this fun Morrocan style table.  The base is collapsible and the top lifts off to use as a tray. Boho-to-go.

I also scored this Baker Furniture end table.  The gold hardware is pretty and it has the most incredible  burled wood finish.

Sweet thrift store lamp, complete with shade. That's a lotta cute for  $4.

I just found a pair of these euro shams at a junk store by my Mother's house in Atlanta.  They're brand new and the fabric is incredible.  I'll probably keep these for my almost done master bedroom.

And of course, no shopping post would be complete without the chairs!!

I have two of these Mid-Century caned wing chairs in desperate need of makeovers.

And I most excited about these:
Mid-Century High Back Chairs.  Yes, I have two, although the companion chair met a rather unfortunate fate:
 No worries!  I'm going to take some inspiration from Barrie Benson's Mid-Century similar chairs.  White frames with a snazzy bright fabric.

I'd love to hear about your recent finds.  Anything good come your way?

My mother taught me all about Baker when she purchased an amazing dining table without full knowledge of what she was getting (neither did the seller). A score for sure. Now she has a couple of others as well. Beauty for sure! said...

The shopping gods have been with you! Great finds. That pair of chairs at the end are amazing--great lines.

Wow - way to shop!!! I love these finds. The chairs will be amazing recovered. I have found some amazing thrift store art too, and the best thing about it is it's so store-able - if it doesn't work now, I slide it under a bed for a future room. I hope you'll post what you do with all these fun finds!

You've done quite well!
I love finding art probably the most. It's the one thing I seem to never put in my shop, always want to keep it and mostly (or always) I do :)
That IS a whole lotta cute for $4.

Great stuff!
I've had a lot of luck recently finding things I don't need, and unfortunately no luck at all in finding what I'm on the hunt for. Isn't that always the way?

Ashley said...

Okay, so that's where all the good finds are your place, Kim! Are you sure you don't want to send those fun shams to me? I promise I'd love them forever....!

I've been on the hunt for a moroccan table and I love how yours is all natural wood. I think it highlights the details of the leg carvings more. ANyway, great score!! Congrats!
