Thrifty Finds VI

vintage drexel campaign nightstand

Yesterday I ventured to a local estate sale that I have been looking forward to for weeks!   It was advertised as a vintage and mid-century modern sale that had a lot of furniture and clothing.  I went expecting to bring home a car full of goodies, I even took a list of everything I was looking for (lamp, chair, linens, dresses…).  Of course, you don't always find what you are looking for.  I ended up bringing home one thing, and it wasn't even on my list:  a bedside table!
It is a vintage Drexel campaign style bedside table nightstand.  For only $16, I absolutely couldn't pass it up!

Normally, I spend a good chunk of my weekends working. The weather was so gorgeous yesterday, I just had to take the day off from work! Sunny and 70 made for a perfect day that involved: estate saling, plant shopping, finally planting my itty bitty container garden, back-yard landscaping, washing the Beetle and going for a long drive!

-Back yard flowers that I found while cleaning up the apartment landscaping that appeared to have been neglected for a number of years!
-Finally seeing leaves on the trees!
