Debbie Doos Garage Sale Paaarty all week long. Debbie throws the best parties, so be sure to head on over & check out what's happening! We were in Paris last week, so I missed last weeks party (be sure to check out my Paris post!), so I could hardly wait for this weeks garage sales and the Paaarty! I didn't have much luck finding many sales this week, but I did manage to find a few neat goodies that I am excited about.
Ok, so the colors on this cast iron door stop are beyond hideous, with some primer and a few coats of heirloom white, she will be a knock out! She's very heavy, too, and at 50 cents I couldn't pass her up!
I am a sucker for cute watering cans, and this one has a gorgeous copy of a vintage French soap label. Tres chic, and tres me!!
I found this gold 8 x 10 picture frame for 50 cents. (break out the heirloom white again!), and this pretty vintage tin tray. I've found trays just like this before at yard sales, and transformed them into magnetic memo boards for my etsy shop, but I think I just may keep this tray myself. Hubby & I have taken a couple of trips to North Carolina & just loved it there!
I was so excited to discover this large wooden applique. It's bigger than it looks in this picture. I am saving this for a future crafting project (how many times do I say that?!!), and think it would look gorgeous painted, you guessed it, Heirloom white! Or maybe a soft aqua.
I found this mirror for 2 bucks. In person, the frame looks really cheap and plasticy. But, I have seen many of you ladies transform mirrors just like this, so I can't wait to work some magic! I am going to remove the mirror, cause it's not in perfect shape, then have hubby cut a piece of 1/4" thick wood to fit, which I will turn into a chalk board. I think I am going to paint the frame a distressed aqua.
Well, that's it! I can't wait to hop in over to Debbie's to see what treasures everyone else has found! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
