Furniture Finds

A couple of weeks ago i found some great furniture finds for our northern nest at "Antiques At The Fairground" in the Emmet County fairground in Petoskey, Michigan.
We've been looking for a coffee table that will hold up to spills, feet, you know, all the abuse a coffee table takes! Well, i think we found the perfect piece. Just look at this monster! It's huge! It's battered! It's amazing!
It's heavy. Really heavy. Just ask my back.

We have no idea of the age, but it's made from live oak and has no nails in it's construction.
Did i mention it's heavy?

I found this cute bookshelf for Ms. B's room. She's so not a pink girl, but for some reason this peachy-pink appealed to her.

A nightstand for Ms.A's room. Or a monkey bench- which ever.

Remember this ironing board?

Now it's a sofa table! I love it!

This sweet little garden table works perfectly by the front door.

It has such sweet details.

I stole this bench from the park- just kidding! I did buy it, and it was a park bench, now it just needs a thick coat of paint { it's a little rough on the tushy } Probably in cream.

I love the color of this tray. I want this to be the accent color in this house... if i can just stick to the plan...

It was a great show. Not too overwhelming, and quality pieces without the crazy prices. There is another show August 6th & 7th at the fairgrounds. If you're near by, you should check it out. I'll be back for sure!

My sweet boy, Maximus, had a seizure on the 4th of July. We've never experienced seizures with any of our dogs. It only lasted a few minutes, but looks so scary. We took him to the local vet who told us there wasn't much more to do than watch him for signs of another one. He seems back to his old self now and is doing well...and now gets to sit on the chaise outside- how do you say 'no' to that face!
Have a happy Friday!
