Furniture Finds

While on our vacation
we "ran into"many finds
We had in mind a chair
for my hsb computer - check

got this for $65 at an antique store in Marietta
(doesn't need to be redone)


a dresser for the guest room - check
$169 at a second hand store
in West Va
(does not need to be redone)









we also got this chair there
for $35






We wanted some sort of box
for the computer monitor
and we got this in Amish country
we found this small stool
for $7
that works perfectly for it




We got this window for $8
at an antique store in Berlin
