Finds of the Week #46 and #47

I have not posted for awhile about my junkin' finds and I thought it was about time I did.  Now that my new workshop is built I have a great place to store and work on projects.  
Here are some treasures from the last few weeks. 


Very old dresser with a hand-painted design on the front-I love the pictures, but the dresser needs some serious work. 


3 School Clocks 

Crystal and gold candlesticks

Very heavy wooden letters and hand carved spoons

French Provincial Vanity 


Bust 

Vintage Linens 

Another bust 

Pair of shams 

Apron for BBQing or painting 

Vintage Mirror 


Chalkboard 

Birdcage and pair of lamps 

Oil Painting 

Vintage dresser with potential

  1. Wow!!! What amazing finds out Junkiń! I would love to see those three Howard Miller school clocks hung side by side as a trio of different time zones. In my kitchen I have two different one laborious the other petal vintage Elika stainless steel clocks hung. One is EST and the other Paris time.
    Have fun recreating all your delightful finds.

  2. Another great haul! My favorites are the oil painting hand carved spoons...wish I lived near your shop so I could come buy a couple of those spoons. I have the same girl bust...and the boy one that matches. Are you going to paint her or leave her white?
    Have a great weekend, DD.

  4. Ok Lady " Di "
    I am taken with some or most of your finds. I had those candlesticks yeas ago when I was thinking more on the lines of R/A with design pieces for my shop my retail store that is.
    As for the sailing ship in the sea, what a beauty, and a favorite it the terra cotta patina bust....

    Now the apron I think could fetch a good price not as an apron, but as to cutting it up and turning it into a over stuffed feather insert throw pillow for a beach coastal home. You could cut a sizable square from the front with that lobster and back it with sail cloth or canvas, it's a sure accent pieces that so on trend.

    You always inspire a great find, many finds I should say.

    Thank you my dear for taking the time to visit me and leaving a beautiful compliment to my feature on your way home.

    See you soon.

  11. I really like the dresser with the images. Is it decoupage, painted, or marquetry? I like the color of the wood, and the worn finish on it, but are those knobs original? They look like they came off of something else, given the little key holes on the drawers. Are the keyholes real? I also like the oil painting image. I think all the other wooden items will look fantastic with your paintbrush! xoxo Su

    1. Thank you Su-the dresser is handprinted and I think it is really old. My plan is to restore and keep the drawer fronts with the pictures and redo the top because it has a lot of damage.
