Found Treasure In The Rough

Happy Labor Day to all of you.

It has been nice having the extra day this weekend.




Terry and I went to Michigan for two days of this holiday weekend.  We headed to the Mercantile Market that The Found Cottage Shop puts on in Holland Michigan.  It was a fun adventure for a few days.  

The Market had lots of chippy goodness.

I fell hard in love for this harvest table.  I have always wanted a vintage harvest table.  This one was for sale but no room in my small cottage for a harvest table :(.  It was a fabulous piece!

Deconstructed furniture.  Oh my!

Globes anyone?!!!

Lots of cute farmhouse finds.

I saw so many sweet mantels.  Don't you love that checked pumpkin garland.  I might have to make one of those.

Pumpkins galore!

Beautiful Frame

Of course had to stop in at The Found Cottage shop too.  Lots of scrumptious things there.

In my last post I told all of you how I wanted this beautiful salvage framed mirror from one of my fave shops.   It was way out of my budget at $1200 so Terry said he would make me something similar out of salvage pieces we already had.  Gosh I love that man and his tools!

We had this old door and thought we could build off of this to make a great architectural entry mirror.

Then at the Market while we were perusing the different vendors my eyes were drawn to this chippy vintage door.  Yep! I thought to myself this is the piece that is going to make that entry way mirror a beauty.


So home it came with us.  With a little fixing on this door and the adding of salvage pieces to it,   this is turning into a nice entry way mirror.

I hope to show you the results of this in my next post.  Just doing some little adjustments.

Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday.
Be safe and enjoy.
Hugs,
Kris

  9. Kris, Mirror ?? You are not fooling me, I know you are the Queen of old doors. LOL. You can not help yourself. :):) Oh my gosh, I loved so many of the beautiful things you have shown us. Yes, I want that nice long table too. Some times small living helps us decide what to buy or not. I have to use a round table here. Can't wait to see your mirror. You know how to keep us on edge. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
    p.s. Thank you so much for the mailbox treat. :):)

  10. Hi Kris, so many pretty items in the photos. Table was fantastic.

    I'm drooling over the door. I miss being able to go to these kinds of shops. NJ doesn't have many but Bucks county which isn't that does.

    Maybe some day John, Reeses, Peanut and I will be able to get there.

    Just a quick mention, my health is improving so much with the new drug for my MS. These trips may come true again

    Can't wait for the reveal!

  16. So many beautiful things at that market! So if you bought this "new" door for Terry to make into an entryway mirror, what are you going to do with the other door you had at home? Hmm, maybe another project? :-)
