Estate Sale Finds

Picked up some neat stuff from an estate sale last weekend. Estate sales are not only a free way to poke around inside fancy houses in neighborhoods you like, they’re also great opportunities to find old treasures that you can keep as-is, or fix up and re-sell. The two pieces below actually go with the grandma-chic/Anthropologie vibe in my place, but come summer, I’ll probably take ’em outside and give them a coat of glossy black or espresso brown paint to make them a little more contemporary.

Estate sales are often listed in local newspaper classified ads, or online on places like estatesales.net. Since estate sales are often in an “everything must go” situation, feel free to haggle on pricing, and if you’re looking for furniture or fixtures, bring some tools like a wrench and screwdriver set in case you need to dismantle stuff. Happy treasure hunting!
