April Antiquing Adventures

I have a few antiquing finds I haven't yet shared with you, so here is a quick round-up of a few different goodies.

First is a lantern I found at this antique show that I think is really cute, but it was super rusty. I knew this would be an easy project, so purchased it for $8 and brought it home. I gave it a good scrub down, let it dry, and then sprayed some trusty black Rust-Oleum spray paint. Now I've got a cute lantern to put outside this summer on our patio that will match our new furniture.

Just this last weekend, I took a mini trip to the Port Orchard Antique Mall and found a few fun things (I don't know how you to to a place that size and NOT come away with goodies!). I found this big "full gallon" bottle for $10. I filled it with our stash of wine cork's and right now it's next to our fireplace.

Lastly, I found these candle holders, for $6 total. You can't beat that! I love the green-blue sea glass.

Have you guys found anything fun antiquing or thrifting lately? What are some of your Spring finds?

PSST - Want to see something fun and exciting for OurSoundHome?  Rust-Oleum is putting my project from yesterday (where I used Rust-Oleum spray paint) on their Facebook page! What a fun Friday treat. Check it out here: The funny thing is, I wrote this second post, where I also used some Rust-Oleum, before knowing I was going to be featured. 

I looked at the Facebook page, and it's a pretty cool site with lots of good project inspiration and challenges (and no, I was not paid or sponsored for these posts, I just love the product and want to share the tips with my readers!). Now, head on over there to check it out, it should be up sometime today!

  1. The lantern turned out great! I barely even recognized it as the rusty find it once was. And I am in LOVE with your jug of corks! Such a great use for your find and a fun way to display your collection! (YAY for Rust-Oleum!!!)
