Yard Sale finds.

Today I actually had time to go to some yard sales since I didn't have to work.And I found some great goodies. I was excited because I rarely find anything I want but today I hit the jackppot.

First we have an old wash board , a wooden bowl(I've wanted one for a long time.) and a couple little resin baskets.

A 3pc set of wooden books. Here's a close up of the baskets.

also a nice americana basket and a wooden star garland.

I have plans to redo this bench but I'm not sure what color I want yet. I'm thinking either a dark red with black dry brushed on it or maybe a navy blue with antique white dry brushed on it. Still deciding.

But my favorite item is this table.
I'm leaving it as it is because it's perfect. It's going to stay outside on my porch. Which is getting a make over soon.

Here is what I've already done with a few of my new goodies.

This is a shelf I have in my kitchen that I change with the seasons. This one is for the summer season. But it seems my white walls need a new color job.They just seems so bland to me lately.

My other shelf still needs some work.
As you can see the little door Wayne made me a few years ago needs a prim make over and so does the glass candle stick on the right. I'll get around to it soon. I hope. But I'm not sure yet what I'm going to replace the heart make do with. maybe a star one.
