friday finds: Blacksburg

This week I'm heading to Blacksburg, VA for my little brother's graduation from Virginia Tech. So, why not see what I can find in this little college town. This time of the year college towns are a great place to find absolute steals on furniture pieces to refinish. Students are getting rid of all their hand-me-downs before heading off for the summer.

This vintage dresser is gorgeous. I just love when they have that attached mirror. And it could be yours for only $125!

This mirror is seriously a great find at only $15! It would look great painted or even finished with a little gold or silver leaf!

I love this table and chair set because there is just so much you can do with it. It would look amazing limed, or even with a dark stained top and painted bottom. And for only $40 it would cost next to nothing!

Queen Anne chairs are always classic pieces but especially with slipcovers being all the rage right now. I love that you can find an inexpensive piece like this one for only $25 and then  just slipcover it!

This little side table has such a rustic feel to it! I think I'd paint it a pale blue or gray. And it would have to be heavily distressed. A great find for only $15!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
