Antiquing Treasure Hunt

29 Sep

Good morning! It’s wet here in the Southeast where I am writing today, we’ve had steady rain for about 7 days now. I was daydreaming this morning, imagining myself going antiquing under a clear fall sky with a big cup of creamy hot coffee… That’s not going to happen, so I thought I would do it “digitally” and invite you readers to come along. Let’s see what we can find!


This metal school locker was painted by Rayburn Arts and Crafts in Olive Hill, KY.  Now it can be used in almost any room in the house for storage and organization. Cute.

This antique window was painted with Rittenhouse Ivory and used to create a coffee table.  I’ve seen quite a number of these at antique shops, and people are always looking for creative ways to incorporate them into their homes and offices.

Finally, have an old dresser that you’d like to transform? This piece was redone by the owners of The Tole Booth, painted New England Red, with a complementary wood top.

It’s amazing the change that a coat of paint can make to an antiquing “find”.  We would love to see your antique treasures– share with us in the comments section, or over on our Facebook page!  


I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
