Estate Sale

::Don't forget to enter the Home Goods giveaway::

How dreamy would a wine cask be as a patio side table?

Or as the base for a dining room table.


or a gorgeous chandelier? 

I had big dreams for an Estate Sale that I found on C-List one night.
Three wine casks were pictured & priced at $50/ea. 
The sale began at 9:00 the next morning!
Hubby and I were dreaming of all we would do with our wine cask treasures.
We walked into the estate sale the next morning, 
quickly realizing the pictures & description had been quite misleading.
The three casks standing before us were nothing more than miniature whiskey barrels,
and they already had a sold sign.
I must admit, that since they were already sold I was glad they weren't what I'd been dreaming of.
Made the pain of not finding our deal of a lifetime more bearable.

I still have my eye out for some though. I'll find them one day,
And when I do, I want to turn that beauty into a chandelier!

I did leave with a few other treasures though...

a few antique books at $5/ea

and an antique wooden sailboat...perfect piece for the shelves in little one's
big boy room. which we'll start working on this summer!

This is what I wanted to look like as we pulled away...

Sharing these finds with House of Grace.
