Today I'm going to share a few goodies I found just before my move to Georgia. Up first?
I found this chair at a yard sale in Lakeland, Florida and instantly fell in love. I know it looks pretty pathetic right now, but envision it painted shabby chic style and reupholstered in some fabulous white fabric yet to be discovered. Thanks to my blogging buddy over at Sissie's Shabby Cottage, I now know what kind of paint to buy. Thanks Sissie for all your inspiration and encouragement!
I love the carving at the top…
and the wheels on the front legs.
I have no idea what the purpose of this chair was originally, its a little on the smaller side, but I'm going to use it in my bedroom. How much did I pay, you ask? I walked away after handing the guy $2.00. SCORE!
Next is this little thingamijiggy. The top drawer opens and holds a box of tissues (see the slot on top?) and then there are two smaller drawers below. I'm planning to paint this all white and you can probably guess that I'm going to encrust it in seashells. I think it will look fabulous. For only $1.00, I think I will have a unique piece once I finally get around to all these projects.
Now the rules say we can share bargains that we found at retail stores also, so here's the table I found at Home Depot. Original price $179. My price? $37! Yes I said, thirty-seven dollars! This was the last one they had and they switched to a different manufacturer, so with no questions ask, I grabbed it up quick! I'm planning on putting in a small deck in this area of my yard as soon as I finish unpacking all these darn boxes.
Now the rules didn't say anything about these next goodies, but yesterday I was at my cousins house in Neptune Beach in Florida and she GAVE me these Newport Sandals by Keen. She bought them last year and only wore them once. She's a flip flops kind of gal and since we both wear the same size, I became the happy recipient. They retail for $95 and I got them for FREE!
She also threw in a couple of her foam visors. She has tons of them (flips flops and a foam visor to match each of her outfits) and she knew I was looking for some. They weigh nothing and you don't get that "visor headache" like the other kind causes. I can't tell you how happy I was that she included the pink one. Isn't life grand when your cousin knows your favorite color? Thanks, Jackie, love you so much!
That's it for this week, now be sure to stop by Linda's to see who else is sharing their nifty, thrifty finds! You just may find some fabulous inspiration of your own.
