SOLD & Finds

My coastal charm desk sold. I listed it on Craigslist on Thursday and had a call first thing. The woman seemed legit. We agreed to meet at Home Goods (who doesn't meet up there) so she could check it out. She loved it and away it went.
I was surprised by how many calls I received on this desk. I admit I loved it, but you know Craigslist. Another woman offered to pay more, but I went with the first person because I would have been mad if someone sold something I planned to buy. I believe in karma. This woman may have me paint a desk using the same color. We shall see.
With the money burning a hole in my pocket I decided to invest it in some finds. Here is what I scored.

This table was a steal. I have big plans for it. Wait for it.

I love the lamp. It is old and will be a perfect addition to Ms.Delia's new pink bedroom. The globe will be sold or recreated into something wonderful. Ohhhh, I just had an idea. The stack of Christmas plates are destined to become cake stands, the lampshade is going into the bathroom (ticking), and the picture just spoke to me. Actually, I am not into pirates (or ships for that matter), but this picture is well done. With a little work on the frame I plan to sell it packaged with two Pottery Barn pirate pillow cases I have left from Drex's bedroom. I couldn't pass up the wicker basket.

This chair is divine. Well, it will be. It is in structurally sound, but the wood is rough. I have a few ideas brewing. It rocks too!

I think this is coral. I don't really care because it looks great on my beachy table. It is over 12" long and six inches wide. I paid $4 for it at a thrift store. Funny, I paid $3 for a tiny piece of coral this summer in Cold Springs, New York. Oh wait, I am pretty sure that was because I was a tourist.
