Happy Birthday Mrs Garden

Once again I bring you a post of little words.  I went treasure hunting for my birthday over the weekend.  Have I mentioned what a great hunter my hubby is?  I might have to re-name him from Mr Garden to the mighty hunter lol.  The pictures that follow are the loot we brought home.

This is what I consider a successful hunting trip! With the entire back of the expedition filled to the brim, we had no choice but to start strapping stuff to the roof!  I know... classy right?


Can we say love at first sight?  What color would you paint it?

Everything you see from this table on was less than $5.  In fact my grand total not including my birthday gift, the big one... was only $46.

This drop leaf was marked at $40.  I got it for free =)

These were from an old lake house!  I thought they would be super cute antiqued in white.

Do you ever remember seeing these types of tables in your grandparents house?  I do!


This is an antique.  Birds eye maple.  You should have seen the guys face when I told him I was going to paint it! LOL

These were road side finds at the low low cost of free =)

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME... I had been eyeballing this for over a week on Craigs list.  It was $100 but for the condition it's in which is even better in person that it seemed in the pictures... it was worth it.  Can you believe I've been married for 8 years and never had a bed?  Well okay a mattress on a frame doesn't count in my book.  I can't wait to re-finish her and get her into my room!




And a wonderful birthday it was.  Filled full of laughs, family and friends!

Wow! You've got an awesome stash. You are going to have a blast working on all of those great pieces. I'd love the link of your friend's post...the one who just refinished a headboard that's a twin to the one I found in Florida.

Sommer said...

Miss Mustard I'm so happy to see you here! I wish I could give you a link of the headboard but my girlfriend is a non blogger, grrr. I will try to hijack some pictures of it to send you! I sent her the link to your picture and we analyzed them both and there are only some very subtle differences. At first she said, hey that is my heaboard! lol.
