THE VINTAGE GLIDER-most POPULAR POSTS!

After looking at my most "POPULAR " pageview hits for 2012, I decided to give HONOR and RECOGNITION to those posts........The first one is THE VINTAGE GLIDER Re-purposed into a VINTAGE PINK SWING!
I wanted a SWING hanging from the side yard trees, so when hubby and I came across this damaged VINTAGE GLIDER with aluminum handles, we knew this would be PERFECT for a tree swing. (I am sorry I didn't take before pictures...forgot).  The GLIDER was overall in good shape, but my hubby worked very hard restoring, painting and hanging it for me!  I LOVE IT!  It truly is "PRETTY in PINK"



This VINTAGE aqua color METAL CHAIR was found in this condition at a yard sale for $5.00 a few years ago.  I have never seen this design or pattern before and it is very precious to me.  Again, hubby gets the credit for digging in a garage and finding it.  The old man having the sale had it covered up and forgot it was there!!  Mike and Frank from American Pickers have nothing on my PICKIN' HUBBY!  LOL!!!



This is the FAMOUS $2.00 VINTAGE METAL GLIDER!   I purchased this for $2.00 at a city wide yard sale about 4 years ago.  It was raining like cats and dogs that day, very few people were out and this guy had this sitting way back by his garage door.  I asked about it and he said yeah, I'll sell it..........I said, how much do you want for it?  And he said....I'll take 2!     I said......$200.00?        HE LAUGHED and said NO!.....$2.00                 SOLD    SOLD   SOLD   SOLD       Hubby restored and painted....this is HIS BABY!   I do have BEFORE PICS!



This is the BEFORE..........Overall, pretty decent shape....few minor holes bottom front



Another "AFTER" PICTURE!  We also found a matching chair sometime later....he restored and painted the same color



Nice VINTAGE SPRING BACK METAL Chairs.............the way we found them!  Anywhere from $1.00 to $10.00 ea.











This SUNBURST beauty was found summer of 2012.  This VINTAGE  GLIDER is a little rough in the front only, mechanics work great!  My hubby is looking forward to RESTORING this one!   It was purchased for $25.00 at a yard sale......
I have a few more UNIQUE CHAIRS and ONE ROUGH GLIDER, we found this past fall.  I will POST about them later.
I hope you enjoyed my MOST POPULAR POSTS PAGEVIEWS for 2012!  Hubby and I LOVE collecting them (especially HIM) and sharing with  my fellow bloggers.  JUNKING is so FUN.....you never know what you will find and be BLESSED with!!      From one sweetie to another~~~Roxie
