Gossip and icebergs....

Jon's been having fun... lots of sales to go to and finding things! 

Women have always liked to gossip, but instead of by text message, they used to have to talk on the phone (GASP!!) and listen in on the party line.  At all times, they like to be fashionable.  This table and chair were just for that! $135

Next up is a beautiful white dresser with mirror.  We painted it in our house white.  $295

Cute little liquor cabinet that we've painted white.  $235

Need a desk and chair?  This is a great one! Neat front and drawer side! $465

 Time to RELAX!!! The original gravity chair.  $95

 Everyone needs storage, and more storage! We painted this tall chest in our new blue.  $345
 This bench is in the rough room--- it just needs some TLC.  What could you do with it? $275
 Can you guess what this table was made from? If you said from a pallet you are correct!! $325
We call this counter the titanic because it is SO BIG AND HEAVY.  But no fears, it won't be running into an iceberg!! $1100

As always, visit our facebook page for the latest and greatest!!

Gorgeous isn't it??

Beautiful and functional--- holds a lot!  But you need tall ceilings for our Chicago cabinets.

That said, here is what I found this week.

Terri saw this one and said….” I want a girl!!!…. or I wonder if I could put this in one of the boys rooms…..even better, put them all together and give me a nice girly room”.  I don’t think the boys would appreciate having this girly piece in their room, but I know that there is a girl out there that this would be perfect for!  This white vanity  comes with the chair.  $295

Old Pulley $75


Half Oval Windows $60 each

Where does the time go?

Time seems to be going faster and faster.  Just this past weekend, our youngest son turned 8!  Life in the antique world isn’t going any slower.  This week we have an interesting line up for you.


Gun Cabinet

I’ve been rehabbing this gun cabinet for a week and it is almost done. Should be out on the floor for our sale this weekend.  Has sliding glass doors.


Blue/Aqua/Teal ? Pieces.  Not really sure what to call this color.

Old Kitchen Cabinet $450


Vanity $320


Door turned into a mirror and storage $375


Square Table with 2 leaves $500

This is a nice sized table.  Perfect for a small spot, but with the leaves you can add extra room for your parties.


White Open Front Counter $695

Nice counter with an open front design.

White Open Cabinet $285
I rehabbed this boring piece into a nice display cabinet.


Mission Kitchen Island $1100
This island has been restored to its glory.  Wonderful oak kitchen island.


Chicago Cabinet $1100

A smaller sized Chicago cabinet just back from the refinishers.


Headboard made from an old door

I made this headboard out of an old door special for someone.  No…it wasn’t my wife.  Think I’m in trouble? Gee Jon, why would you be in trouble?  Just because I had to BEG for a wall piece from the old tin you make, and our bedroom door still isn’t trimmed out, and…. but I think I’ll keep you around SmileSmile


Come See Us This Weekend!!
