Yet another garage sale find!!

It time again for Rhoda’s Thrifty Treasures over at Southern Hospitality
This Saturday was another huge community garage sale in a neighboring town. I LOVE these community sales because you can hit so many houses in a such a short time. I found this faux stone picture that I KNEW would be a perfect chalk board for only $2. I forgot to take a before picture- so here it is when I started spray painting it.

And here is the after-

I looks perfect hanging in my laundry room. The black hanger is an old brass door knob that I pray painted black. But the DEAL OF THE DAY- was this amazing antique dresser! for $40!!!! I jumped for joy when I saw this. My in real life friend Kristen from WeareTHATFamily was with me- and she was just as excited as I was -and told me I HAD to buy it.

and I am so glad I did. I cleaned it up with some Murphy’s oil and put it in my living room. I first thought I would paint it-but have since decided against it. I love the different woods and all the character that it has- it even smells antique!
I am now officially hooked on garage sales and can hardly wait till next Saturday. Do they have a 10-step program for garage-sale junkies?

  4. Oh, girl! You’re officially a yardsale junkie now, it will get in your blood & you won’t be able to resist those cute little yardsale signs all over the place on Sat. a.m. WOW, love the little thing you made into the chalkboard, that was a perfect idea for it AND the dresser. Oh my, glad you decided not to paint it, it’s too cute as is. What a great piece that is. I know you & Kristen must have a ball out there saling together. I’m so happy for you.

    That dresser is FABULOUS! What a great deal!

    The idea of schleping 2 of my boys to garage sales just makes me queasy. Maybe one day, I’ll gather the courage I need and do it!

    That chalkboard is sooo cute! I love how you hung it with ribbon and a knob. I think I might need to copy this project!
