Last weekend was a great weekend for me garage saleing! My boys actually love it and Jack is my little spotter. It is fun to see them get as excited as me when we find a good sale! At one point he even said, "Do they really think putting a couch and a dresser on their driveway means it's a GARAGE SALE???" He also is quick to point out what is in his eyes a "junk sale". I love my little garage saleing companions!
I picked up this $5 dresser for my friend, she's super crafty so I know she will do something cool with it. It is solid wood and I got it on Friday while someone was setting up for their Saturday sale! I saw it and just asked and they were willing to sell it to me! Never hurts to ask!
These pillowcases are ADORABLE and I'm super pumped to make more pillowcase dresses!
This nightstand was my favorite find! The lady I bought it from requested that I bring her the "after" pics so I'm antsy to start working on this one!
I've really wanted this $29.99 Nate Berkus gold tray for a long time, I've restrained myself and I was rewarded for my restraint! I got both trays that I'm still deciding exactly how I'm going to use.
These two terrariums were exactly what I needed for my terrarium project.
I've accumulated quite the canister collection, but I couldn't pass on these cool stainless tins. I actually think they are worth a bit, and maybe someday I'll part with them. For now they are holding my K-cups and tea!
This play set will be perfect for my nephew Harry. Thankfully my dad is here in ND now and can deliver it to him in Minnesota this week!
This $10 dresser needs a good paint job, but it is going to go on the platform of the boy's loft bed. It fit the dimensions that I had been carrying around with me PERFECTLY! The real question is how I should paint it??? I'm thinking about trying to do something like this!
So if I subtract the cost of the item's for friends I came in at $39.50. I'm trying to convince Matt that since Jack was in need of a helmet that we didn't have to purchase for $25 retail that my cost is really only like $14.50.... and since we didn't have to buy a $20 booster it's more like -$6.50 but he's not quite buying it! Either way, I'm still pretty pumped about my $40 of purchases!!
Don't forget that the "Go Get Your Garage Sale On" linky party is open through the end of the month! Also if you aren't a blogger but you have a photobucket, flickr, or similar site that you can still link up your finds! Just make sure you make your album "public"!
