Antique finds under $100

 Hi there friends...
On Monday my hubby had to go to his back doctor for a follow up and I went along. His doctor is in Connecticut and on the way we pass a great antique store!
~~~
 Didn't come home empty handed:-)
I found this pretty chair for $25...I'm going to use it near the desk in our study.
After I give it a good cleaning I'm going to give it a fresh coat of black paint
 The rush seat is in great condition.
 Next I found these antique insulators...they had a ton of them...they were $2 each.  Next time I visit I'm going to pick up a few more.
~~~
I've been on the hunt for a small cabinet for our master bath...it must have been my lucky day because I finally found one.
 She's definitely an old piece which I love...she just needs a little TLC!
They were asking $75 for it but I got it for $50.
I worked on this piece yesterday...I'll be back soon to show you the makeover! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

That is a really cool chair! Is it a Windsor? Some people paint furniture to get that chippy look. I get really nervous when it comes to painting antique furniture, you're very brave. Nice finds, hope all is well with your husband!

That turned out to be a worthwhile trip to the doctor's office! Love everything you found. That chair is really nice. I love old chairs like that.

Hi Martina and I hope all was well with your hubby's follow up. Now look at all of your treasures. I used to have quite a few of those olden insulators but don't know what happened to them. I love your little cabinet and will be looking forward to seeing it in your bathroom.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Something Nice and Pretty said...

The rush seat on the chair is in great condition...love it! The cabinet I can't wait to see it done!

Debbie said...

OMG, is that a Hitchcock chair that someone has already painted over? If it has already been painted, I guess you might as well give it another coat since the value is gone, but if the finish is just worn, please be careful not to paint it and just leave it in its original loveliness.

Beautiful finds all the way around!

Debbie said...

BTW, I may not comment here regularly, but I have been a stalker for a long time. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your style and taste. One of my favorites in blogville, in fact.

Ron said...

Great finds, Martina.

Beautiful finds, can I ask where in CT you found these? We live in SE MA and go for drives in CT quite often. I would love to find some new shops!

Hi, I have a very similar chair, I would not paint it, just clean it up and it will look great and keep its value.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh that cabinet is just amazing! I can't wait to see the transformation.

Maria Elena said...
