Wordless Wednesday: My First Estate Sale Treasure! {linky}

Hubby and I discovered the magic of an estate sale this weekend. We brought home a few really amazing pieces, but this tea trolley is my biggest prize.





It only cost us $25 and it needs a little bit of love, but it is an absolutely PERFECT addition to our new home!





Leave your WW Post down below! Would love to check out all of the fun photos of the day! :)

  4. That is an amazing find. I would tend to leave it as is for fear of losing it's value. The design on the front leaf is fabulous.

    1. We want to leave it as intact as possible, but the hinges on the leaves don't hold anymore- they need to be replaced. Also, the knob on the drawer is broken, there is a push handle you can't see in the picture that won't stay in place, and there are scratches and gashes in the varnish. Some hardware fixes and a little sanding and revarnishing should do it!

      I also fell in love with the leaf design and those WHEELS! :)

    1. It was our first. We were on our way home from a family breakfast and we saw a sign on the corner. We figured why not stop in before nap time and just take a peek around- it was so worth it!

      Come back and let me know if you ever do make it to one and share your treasures! :)

    1. Hahaha. I had the biggest smile on my face as soon as I spotted it. I was worried I couldn't get it out of there fast enough! Still smiling every time I walk by it!

      Thanks for connecting!
