Garage Sale Saturday!
The little birds above are, without a doubt my favourite find today at 25 cents...they are too cute! The little step stool just needs a little cleaning and it's perfect at $1. The white desk was free. Everything you see in the 3rd pic was $10 combined (that's Mr. Biff at work)....lampshades, little shabby chic shelf, silk cushion, seahorse hook, 3 chunky candlesticks, 2 large matted pictures (I wanted the frames) and a beautiful wreath still in the box.
The top photo shows all the amazing finds the other $10 bought - the step stool, the two silver plates, 5 brand new bottles of craft paint, 10 yards of piping, an enamel jug, some netting (for my earring holders), a wooden bowl, a bag full of cute little handmade gift bags and a bag full of furniture knobs. Also included in that sweep was a vintage chinese checkers board, a vintage pillow, and 2 square foam pillows with ugly covers but great form!!
You will have to watch over the coming weeks to see what we do with all these treasures. We are planning a tea/garden party in early August to showcase our furniture and knick knacks.....more to come.
In the meantime - here is the top part of the pantry I was working on a couple of weeks ago - remember the bottom is an old tv stand/entertainment unit and the top is a repurposed changing table....see what paint and a little imagination can do?
Please ignore the stacked up pillows next to the cabinet - its been raining and all the deck cushions have to go somewhere!
