Four Yardsales and an Auction

As promised earlier in the week, here are my finds from LAST weekends adventures in yardsale-ing.

This is alot smaller than it looks, but I picked up this sweet little white urn for $1.

These cloth cocktail napkins also came in at $1. I fell in love with the bright colors.

I picked up this table for $5 at a church flea market. I thought it was so unique the way the little door in front opens instead of a pull-out drawer. It was old and chippy, so I painted it black and added some Rub n Buff in "Antique Gold". I'm happy with how it turned out. The space next to my couch is very small because the door to my basement is right next to it so this little table was the perfect size - just big enough to hold my table lamp.

This little stool was given to me by my BFF. She picked it up at an estate sale for $1. I spray painted it red and turned it into a plant stand. It goes great with the new yellow walls in my Mud Room.

Of course I saved the best for last. My wonderful hubby loves going to auctions. One in particular is out in the middle of nowhere and there are always lots of treasures to be found. I try to go with him when I can, but this particular time I stayed home. Well, he just knew I would LOVE this accent table so he bid on it and won it for $4!!!! The man knows me SO well!! The picture hardly does it justice, as it is SO beautiful. I love the legs and the scalloped edges. The handpainted sage color goes perfectly in my Living Room. The best part is - there wasn't anything wrong with it! All I had to do was wipe it down. Gotta love that!

I'm taking the weekend off from yardsale-ing, unless I find some loose change in the sofa! Gotta feed the family!
