weekend treasures

This past Sunday was the last Arboretum Antiques Market for the year. I went without really needing anything, but ended up seeing a few things that I couldn’t resist.

Most of the stuff was just small but will be great for styling/staging.

This vintage hospital table was my first purchase of the day. Love, love, love it. The top needs refinishing…piece of cake, though.

Perfect as an end table in my studio.

And last, but certainly not least…this fab-u-LO-so industrial work table.

Perfect work table for my studio. I like that it’s rough but the top is a little too rough for my taste. Plus, it got rained on at the market and still hasn’t completely dried!

I’m going to refinish it. I don’t think I’ll stain this one. Probably just sand and use tung oil on it.

Have you found any treasures lately?

Do share!

  1. Great finds! Do you have a retail shop? You mention your studio and wondered if you sell either in a retail shop or online. Love the mailbox!!

    • Hi Cheryl, no I don’t have a retail shop or sell online. My studio is just for my projects and furniture refinishing/painting. I will, however, be selling my things in a retail store here very soon. Look for details in an upcoming post!

  2. Love all of your finds — you got some really cool things! I’m loving both of your tables – that hospital table will make a fabulous end table. My favorite thing of all is that great industrial table… it will be absolutely beautiful with nothing more than some sanding and tung oil… can’t wait to see that one when you get finished with it! 🙂

  12. Great finds! I LOVE the industrial table just the way it is. I’m sujre whatever you do, it will look great. The hospital table is a fun unique piece also. Fun smaller items also. I love anything cast iron. Hopped over from S. Hospitality. Now a new follower.

  14. I love your table!! I have the exact same one (minus the wood top) that I purchased last week at our antique extravaganza! I will be using it as a dining table ….after a little TLC.
    Great stuff that you found!

  15. i love the industrial work tables – i have two of them – one a work table, and the other one, when i have the space – i thought it would be great as a skirted kitchen island. (shelves underneath – top refinished/oiled) if you have a wood person that can run the entire top thru a sander, it comes out beautiful!
