This wooden magazine rack with tooled leather sides was found at Goodwill.  I may remove the leather or paint it as it smells sort of musty.  I paid $7.99.

I paid $2 at a garage sale.

  1. The wooden cabinet with shutters looks like a spice cabinet to me. Love all your finds.

  2. Love seeing what you do with your finds!!
    My question is , what do you with your finds?? Sell or keep them??

    1. Some I sell right away. Some I sell after I use it for a while. Like my covered patio has different stuff most years. I give some stuff to my family. I sell mostly on local FB groups.
