My house was built in 1973 and only had one owner until we bought it. From what the neighbors say, she was a character. I believe them! Shortly before putting the house on the market, her family had an estate sale. BUT the attic and crawlspace under the house were never cleaned out. Treasure hunt!!! A hot, dirty, nasty treasure hunt that yielded large piles of trash and large pile of give away stuff and these items below that I claimed!
First is the small table base. I discarded the completely warped, split and worthless top. One day I am sure I will find a cute table top with no base or this would be a great base to one heck of finial. In the background you see an old drawer. I took the front off and now I am left with a big rustic display box that I can hang. I think it will make a good backdrop to photograph some of the things I sell.
This little bedside table is interesting and rustic. I am not sure if anyone "needs" a bedside table in this house, but they may :) Oh and that metal drawer, I just picked up one of these at the thrift store this week, and look here another one! I hope they are tall enough to hold my craft paint!
There are 6 of these cabinet doors that will be great for serious upcycling! I plan to so something similar to the drawer front I did here on at least a few of these.
Can you see the thick layer of dust? It was bad! This is a footboard with no headboard to be found. This one says large chalkboard sign to me. I din't think I need a big heavy chalkboard sign, but I may be wrong. I had seen enough ideas on pinterest of headboards and footboards to not let this one go to the curb.
I also have a nice collection of old clay pots now too. The only thing I wanted from under the house!
What do you think about my treasures?
