I found this wood ironing board stashed behind a screen in one of the consignment booths. It was $9.99. I usually see them selling for around $35.00.
I have had a fascination with wood ironing boards ever since an old next door neighbor took me to lunch at a fancy schmancy little restaurant in Oakwood, Ohio and asked for us to be seated at the "ironing board." I thought she was nuts, but I thoroughly enjoyed my meal sitting at a very unique and interesting table!
Here you see my board set up in the great room. It's set up as a table for two for tea. ~I apologize for what appears to be clutter behind the board. That's my cocktail table and the three glass candle holders on top.
This is another shot of the board. The bunched lace table runner was also a store find at a cost of $1.99. I bought two other runners, but forgot to post them.
This small pink and white plate will be going into one of the upstairs guestrooms. It was a bargain at one dollar!
A little bird, (with what appears to me to be drunken eyes ) LOL is temporarily living in this cup and saucer.
I found this small (5 x 5) mirrored pedestal that features etching on all four sides. It can be hung on the wall, as well. Here it holds a pewter candlestick.
This is a small silverplated dish that can hold a multitude of things. I left it unpolished, since I like the look of old. It was $2.99.
A medium sized silver tray holds dried roses from a bouquet that Mr. Sullivan gave me last year. The $2.00 silver punch cup holds fake pearl beads.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my treasure hunting finds. I may not always purchase what some people would deem as expensive or very high quality merchandise. I buy what I like and what will enhance my home decor. And if it comes at a very reasonable price point, so much the better.
