Now onto what I found this weekend. Garage sale season is winding down here, there just aren't as many sales as there were a month ago. It makes me sad because I LOVE garage saleing! Oh well, that just means that I will have more time to spend working on projects I bought at garage sales.
I created a list at the beginning of the summer of things that I wanted and found almost all of them. One thing on my list that was left to find was a glider rocking chair. Our neighbors down the street from us had a garage sale this past weekend and had this glider rocking chair for sale. I bought it for only $15.00! It is real wood and is very firm...it has a new home in my spare bedroom.
I found another cloche with a very unique plate. I am not going to paint this plate because it is too pretty! I got it for .50 cents.
I found these little coca-cola bottles at an antique store for a $1.00 each. I might have to go back and buy more. I have a little project up my sleeve with these cuties. Don't you just love the color of them?
This is a miniature chicken dish! I don't think I had ever seen a small version of these chickens. The dish cost $2.00.
I bought this Noah Ark's lamp for $3.00. I love the shape of the lamp and thought it would be cute painted a fun color...no offense to Noah and his Ark but it doesn't fit my style.
I bought this mirror at a thrift store...I think it has a paint job gone wrong. No worries...a little Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint will take care of it. I got this mirror for $8.00. It was a little bit more than I wanted to pay but I have not been able to find these mirrors for less than $40.00 at retail stores so I bought it.
Lastly, I found these (6) glass globes for .25 cents a piece. I bought a new vanity light for my master bathroom and have been searching garage sales trying to find globes for the light. Patience is the key when garage saleing!
I hope you all had a good weekend and were able to come home with some cool treasures!
