A Few Yard Sale Finds..


One of my favorite pieces in the house.  My husband bought the top of the bar at a yard sale, it was old and beat up.  He purchased wood from Home Depot and over the weekend this summer before we moved made this beautiful bar.  It sits in front of the window when you first walk in the house.  I love it.  He stained it a dark mahogany.  It is quite stunning, it ended up costing us about $40.00 to finish it.

This is another piece I found at a yard sale and used some Yellow Paint I had out in the barn to refinish it. It was really scratched up so I basically sanded the whole thing. I was looking for something for more storage in the front entry way.  I am going to add the chalk board paint to the front of the wooden bins.  Stay Tuned.

  6. I can't get enough of yard sales! Some people would be amazed what they could find if they gave it a chance. I loved going to yard sales since I was a little kid. =)
