Yard Sale Finds

September 11, 2007

I’ve had some really good luck at yard sales the past few weeks. I bought this red berry wreath that I’ll put on my door at Christmastime (after I spruce it up a bit)…

This bench is perfect for our entry! I just have to decorate it a bit better. The lady at the yard sale didn’t want to sell it (she was using it to display items), but I talked her into it for $5. I actually do this a lot – I figure it doesn’t hurt to try! I thought about painting it, but I kind of like the worn look and the paint color…
I love this cottage-y chair – it’s a great replacement to our old recliner! And it’s in nearly perfect condition.
This cute frame w/mirror came as a set of two for $1. I painted them white (they were dark wood) and I’m not sure where I’ll hang them yet…
Do you enjoy yard sale finds as much as I do?? I LOVE a good deal! My husband says from now on I can only buy stuff that we REALLY need, but I just can’t turn down such great stuff!:) Gotta try though!
