My huband and I visited a local yardsale last weekend. This is a home that during the summer has yard sales almost every weekend. I think he must buy storage units or something; otherwise I don't know how he could possibly have so much. Anyway, I bought a $5 ottoman from him that day. There were a lot of other things I would have loved, but I am too cheap. I try not to pay over $20 for things. Sometimes I stretch it up to $50 but even that is out of my comfort zone.
Well, late Sunday night we were on our way home from grabbing one of my Craislist finds when we passed Mr. Yardsales house. It was past dark, but we could tell there was a pile of goodies outside of the fence. We turned around after doing a double take and sure enough it was a rather large pile of items I had passed up earlier in the day with a "Free" sign propped up in the middle of it. At this point I was practically salivating at the opportunity. Dear Hubby loaded 3/4 of the pile into the back of the truck and home we went.
I scored a set of four little caned chairs that need some love, an old victrolla cabinet, a dovetailed wooden box, some old picture frames, and another chair that is screaming plant something in me. All for free! Don't you just love these kind of days?! I sure do.
Tonight I am sharing with you a coffee table redo that I aquired from the local Goodwill. I had a $10 voucher so it cost me a whopping $4.99! All it needed was a new coat of paint in white to liven her up for a new day. I added a couple of stripes in another shade of ivory to the top to compliment the butterfly paper I chose to put under the glass. Now it looks fresh and ready for spring.
Linking up with these lovely ladies:
