Decor Steals MMS Pick of the Month & Giveaway


 I always enjoy my MMS Pick of the month for Decor Steals and this one is no exception.  The piece that they’re offering up for sale today is very special.  It’s a 1920’s wooden water bucket.  Yes, a true antique.  


I love the warmth of old wood.  Anyway, pieces like this have so much possibility.  It’s the perfect spot for some magazines by a comfy chair or it could be a waste paper basket in a powder room…




(Check out the detail on that handle!)

…and it’s perfect to keep rolls of toilet paper handy.


Don’t wait too long on this steal…I bet it will sell out quickly.

And here’s a preview of tomorrow’s steal…a set of four nesting wooden herb crates.



These were made famous by The Lettered Cottage.  I noticed them in their kitchen when I first started following their blog and always loved them.




The set of four will go up for sale tomorrow at 10:00 am EST.

As always, we’re going to have a giveaway for each of these items.  Here’s how to enter…


For one entry, just leave a comment.

Check out the Pick Steals section and get involved in deciding a future deal and leave a second comment letting me know which deal strikes you the most.

For one last entry, you can either LIKE their Facebook page or follow them on Pinterest. Leave one last comment letting me know you’ve done one (or both) of those.

This giveaway is only open to those living in the continental US and readers who are 18 and older. It will end Sunday, January 20, 2013, at midnight PST and the winners will be announced by Monday. If you purchase either pick and are the winner, you will receive a full refund.

Good luck and happy shopping!

    Love this antique bucket…would use it for toilet paper probably! Love to think of where it has “lived” in the past and what it was used for! :)

  5. Marian,
    I just bought the bucket–thank you for finding it and putting me onto a cool shop! We are redoing our lower bath on a budget (toilet and vanity top change led to flood, now a whole redo!) and I have all the fixtures, parts in order for install. We are going with a pedastal sink and needed a cool wastebasket–perfect. I love having some old in the mix and this fit the bill. Also, this site saves me from having to peruse antique/thrift stores which is not my thing. Can be interesting but not the scout you are! I am too busy with my Etsy shop and mom duties so this site is great–thanks again!
