Trollin' Through The Thrifts Today. Couple Of Good Project Pieces. Status: Too Many Projects Already!
Don't worry, I didn't drag all these strays home too. The "pound" is pretty much at capacity. But I thought I'd share these great and interesting pieces with ya in case you're lookin'.
It's not just a little stylish danish desk. It's a sewing machine! It even had some sewing supplies
in the side drawer. The cabinet is in pretty good shape. It could use a good cleaning and some
Howards love. The good news is...
...there is in fact a nice looking sewing machine included. I didn't test it out or anything but I bet
it works. $50 @ the Salvation Army thrift store Florissant doesn't seem like too much for a nice
looking little desk AND a sewing machine. Too bad I've already got mine.
This little knee hole desk might need a new coat of white lacquer but at only $35 (also @ Salv.
Army) you'll still be ahead of the game after the job is done. And think how amazing this would
look after with a new shiny white coat of paint.
This dresser comes with a pair of mirrors (as seen behind the dresser) and apparently a head
board that you probably wouldn't be impressed with. The dresser has some wear and tear, but
like I said...these are project pieces. It could be easily used as is...I'm sure that most pieces
bought at the Salvation Army thrift store are used as found but this would look soooo good with a
little help. Even just painted it would look great. Look on Design*Sponge for creative paint ideas.
Lastly, I spotted these neat Speaker / End Tables at the Goodwill Florissant. These Empire
Cavalier 4000 speakers were apparently serious hi end Hi-Fi speakers back in the '60s. Too
bad they are missing their marble tops. If they were still intact I might have popped the $50 each
for these bruisers. 15" woofers with 20lb magnets and titanium dome midrange and tweeters. Of
course the speakers could be all rotted too. Still....those louvered cabinets are pretty darn cool
looking! Those would make for some Ri to the Diculous rear surround speakers ('cuz they'd be
on each end of your sofa).
