Would You Buy It Wednesday

As I am posting this, I can't believe it's been a week since I have blogged. We went to the lake for the 4th and I was without internet for four full days. Nearly sent me over the edge. **wink**

Yesterday, I spent my lunch hour (or two) in heaven! I was able to hit two thrift stores and made some fabulous purchases! This is my favorite find...it was only $11.50! SWOON! This adorable chair/cradle appears to be handmade and is adorned with darling painted cherubs and kittens. I'm thinking about sanding the whole thing down (darling cherubs and all), spray-painting it with Krylon's Ballet Pink and distressing it to perfection. I think it would be a lovely piece for a baby or toddler's room. Kendall enjoyed playing with it last night, but at 4 years old, she is just a bit too big for it. :)




So, would you have bought this for $11.50? Please go check out the other goodies on Junker Newbies site here! I am always so inspired by the things other people pick up!

I finished up my makeover on last week's "Would You Buy It" and I am pleased with the results. It looks so much better than I thought it would! If not for the helpful comments last week I'm not sure I would have thought to paint it black.

I'll be back tomorrow to share some more of my purchases from yesterday as well as my little completed cabinet project.

Hi Erin,
That is a very cute chair/cradle and I think it will look wonderful with a fresh coat of paint. I probably would not have bought it, but only because I don't have any little ones around my house anymore.
I love how your sconce turned out! The black paint and the addition of the number are perfect!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my locker basket storage. I found that wire rack at an antique store in Liberty. I saw where you live in OP. I live in Parkville so we are practically neighbors!!

I have never seen a chair/cradle but I think it is wonderful. Oh yes Pink would be gorgeous. I think I would have bought it since I hope to have a grandgirl one day and it's perfect for dolls!

Your sconce is beautiful! It's always amazing to see what a little paint and different decorations can make in an item. I'm with Betsy, the cherubs are a little creepy, but I can't wait to see what you come up with.
