Fresh Picked Wednesday!

For the "Fresh Picked" items, they are straight off the truck!  I know we have a lot of followers that like to do their own projects so I like to feature them no matter how beat up they are!  So if you are into projects this post is for you! We will clean them up and leave them in project status for a few days only!  So if you are interested send us a message or call right away before they get painted! 

Here we go!

First off, we just got this paint today to try!  A client told us how wonderful it is, so we really can't wait to try it!  I will post some before and after shots!!  Can't wait to see the results!

Vintage Wooden Desk - $70

I am thinking this chair is for a garden, or possible front porch with a big potted plant sunk down in the middle where the seat was.  It is a great looking chair, but is it need of Major TLC!  We suspect the chair has some age to it as well.

Garden Chair - $22.50

The Seat isn't usable, but past the torn up part is a sturdy wooden frame where you can plop that potted plant!

 Lots of goodies!

Great little wooden shelf - $25
 This wicker desk needs a little TLC on the drawer, but overall is pretty sturdy!  It is really charming

 Two matching tables a larger and medium sized one.

Large - $38
Medium - $30

This is a unique table, the story we were told is it is from around WWI - Either way is a great table!!
This shelf has a GREAT Shape to it!  It will need sanded and repainted but LOVELY!!

Fabulous Furniture!

The store is packed full of fabulous finds, stop over if you get a chance and take a look!  I have some fun photos to share today, and some up close shots of items we have.  Let's just cut right to the chase :)

As a photographer from time to time we get something that I just know will photograph fabulously!  Behold this trunk!  I shot a few fun photos of my daughter, niece and nephew in the store today! 

This is the beautiful old dresser I was blogging about yesterday!  Great curves on this one :)

Another great dresser lots of storage!!  

Old Tea Cart, we have repainted!!!  Would look great in the kitchen!!

 JELLO MOLDS!  We have quite a few of these if you are looking for them!

I think it is interesting to look through vintage cookbooks!  SO We have these two that are full of good advice!

 Great Pepsi crate!

Great antique stool!!


Wooden shelf!

Fall is here...

I am not used to the days getting shorter, and the light going away so fast in the evenings!  But I did manage to steal these few photos before the light was completely gone this evening!  We did snag some great items for the shop, and one item I LOVE that is an antique! A dresser with a mirror that is really beautiful... this one isn't a project at all.  We are going to clean it up, and keep it the beautiful wood that it is!  I also found some fabric that I am SO excited about, and can't wait to use it on a project!!!

We would love to get all of you involved in the blog by sending us photos your finds at Herb's Salvage and how you use them in your home!!  And we will do a weekly feature on the blog! Thank you to all who support the blog and our little store it means so much to us! 

Fabulous Antique Dresser!  Beautiful old dresser, can't wait to clean it all up!

Antique Dresser - $300 (come and take a look, this needs a home it is very lovely!!)

And now to the goods!  I will be updating these items with more detailed photos tomorrow evening!

Wooden Bench - $115 (solid wood, and seat opens up for storage!)

Sofa Table - $95  (solid wood sofa table - this will be painted soon, so if you like it unpainted please pop by and take a look at it!)
Framed Boomberry Prints - $12.50 
Plant Stand - $50 This has been featured on the blog before, but there are so many things you can do with this little stand.  I am hoping to take some of my vintage books to pile on top and photograph, or a cluster of chunky candles.

 Beautiful Fabric - I can't wait to use this fabric for a project, we have quite a few chairs waiting to get a makeover!

  Happy Monday!
