Treasure Hunting in Bryan-College Station

On our way to visit Facelift Furniture we spotted a Goodwill. You know that we couldn’t pass that up after our visit. They had great furniture. I found two pieces that had to come home with me, a drop leaf coffee table that will be going into the main room at Star Hill and a small dresser that is going into the bunk room to hold guest supplies. I paid $14.00 for each solid wood piece of furniture. They look a little rough right now, but I am chomping at the bit to get started on them. The maple drop leaf table is going to be Behr sailboat blue.  I got so excited when I got home that I did not photograph the drop leafed table before I started sanding.

It will be a bright spot in the center of the room and my red accents and milk glass will look great on it. It is my plan to give it a worn look, so that when the feet get put on it they will only make it look more loved. I love that the table is small when we need it to be and then can grow when we are playing board games or putting puzzles together. I plan on being creative with the dresser. I think it is going to have a fun pattern to go with the western country feel of the room. I am itching to get started painting… soon.
My social planner and her hubby only had one request on the trip. A stop a Weinerschnitzel. We don’t have one of those near us and it has a huge meaning to them. They met at the Tucson, Arizona Weinerschnitzel, when they were 15 and 17. The weather was perfect and an outside picnic was perfect. I really can’t believe I ate a whole chili cheese dog and order of fries, but I did.

After our trip to Goodwill, we ate chocolate at The Chocolate Gallery in downtown Bryan. What a great place. You can watch the chocolate being made then order from old fashioned glass counters filled with goodies.

We strolled around the downtown area and made a few purchases. We loved looking around, just ran out of time. Our last stop at Bryan Market was where I picked up the “Cupid”. Oh, and I did get it hung, finally.

I enjoyed our day trip. It may be hot in Texas summers, but I sure love Texas winter.
