Thrifting: Yard Sales

Sunday, May 8, 2011

I think the first Saturdays of each month are going to be my favorite time of the month this summer! I went to a total of five yard sales this weekend! (Yeah, I know, I may need some help.) I first stopped by the big one at our apartment complex. There was a ton of stuff, just nothing we really needed. So I headed to the one I had been planning on. The poster read, "Multi-family yard sale: Vintage and Designer!" How could I not stop by? The photos below display my success.

Prints: $1/each I think I'll use this one for a birthday card maybe!

I picture this one to be framed in our (future) laundry room.

Key wall art: $2 I painted this after I took this photo with gold spray paint, but I think I'm going to try it in white or black.

Chair: $8. It just needed some scrubbing and good as new! I was thinking about sanding it down and painting it yellow to use it as a second chair in the office. But I think I like it how it is!
Blank canvas: $4 This canvas was still wrapped in plastic! I was so excited about it, I painted it as soon as I got home.

The rest of the yard sales I went to after this one were pretty junky. But I'll be back on the yard sale hunt next month!


  1. Did you lay the key on the canvas to get that look? So cool!

  2. Yeah! That's exactly what I did! Just used spray paint!
