Garage Sale Treasures

Before we had children, it seemed I went garage saling (is that a real word?) every weekend. Since having children...not so much.

Well thanks to my terrific, understanding husband, I've managed to make it out to garage sales several weekends since the "season" began.

This weekend, I hit a couple of church sales (love those!) a thrift store and a few garage sales. Here's what I ended up with - 2 kids' chairs (solid wood), handmade wooden table, brass lamp, 5 picture frames, 2 wire baskets, 3 wooden plaques.

I got all of this for just under $30! I think I did pretty good!

Here's a closer look at that beautiful (not) brass lamp (I've already gotten to work on this beauty!) that I got for a steal at $3!

And the handmade, solid wood table I got for $7!

I'm not sure what exactly I'm going to do with the table and kids' chairs yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I do already have plans for the picture frames, though (stay tuned!).

So how about you? Any luck at the garage sales this weekend?

  5. Great the lamp!

  6. You did super great. I can't wait to see what you do with everything. That lamp is great!

  7. I have a thing for old wooden charis and tables. DH says the nastier, the better I like them. He also says he won't help me bring any more home, but that's not hard to work around.
    Have fun with your treasures.
