A Few Finds

A chest I got for $8. This is before...
This is the inside...then I sanded it...
This is after I stained it with a dark chesnut...
Here is the outside...
I don't know what possessed me, but I bought this desk...from the 60's or 70's???
It is going to take me awhile to get all the stickers off...
This was basically free at a garage sale and I think I could use this italian poster somewhere...if not, oh well, I'll have a garage sale!
It's sideways but I got these three mugs: Texas, Cali and Washington - and they were basically free as well, so how could i pass them up?
I got this for $1. It has a bunch of coasters in it. I love it! I have some ideas for this!

Just a cool box...
And another cool looking box...
This next thing is so neat! A firebird royal typewriter. I couldn't find it anywhere except on etsy and the chick told me she sold it for $200. Crazy!

I also got an old shoeshine kit. I think maybe I've gotten out of needs to be sanded down a bit, but it's cool!

Well, have a great day!
