A Re-do and FINALLY a few finds!

I can NOT believe we're almost in July!

Our weather has been pretty funny, last Saturday I actually had the furnace on!

We went from pretty much cold to way too hot, but Im really not complaining!

My craft show on Saturday was a wash out! It was cold and rained ALL day! There was no way I was going to set up under my tent with the rain blowing side ways to ruin all of my hand mades, so I have this HUGE collection of Americana prims sitting in bins. I ran an ad on CL yesterday, I am having a sale right here at my house this Saturday to see if I can get most of this sold, who knows my Birthday Giveaway may come to the winner in a few boxes, ha!

Ive been hitting some good sales, every so often and the stuff is just piling up in the basement and garage. I wanted to get it ALL together and take one big fat pic but that didnt happen so Im posting what I have just sitting in the garage for now!

I didnt get a before shot of my breadbox re-do but Im sure youll get the idea

And a few things Ive found at recent garage sales,

Look at the shelf - $15, already primmed up! BUT its already had a coat of black because it had some sort of gold paint on it that just wasnt me. And I figured Ide get sick of the stars after a while so gone they are!
There are 2 of the little chairs but one is being used in the house

Stay tuned cause I got lots more:)

Okay I want that breadbox. You did a fantastic job on it. It is exactly what I'm looking for and that finish is perfect. Can't wait to see what you do with all your other goodies.
Have a great day,

This rain is putting a damper on everyones plans, it seems. We are finally getting a break this week, so hoping to get out and enjoy the sun. Love your finds and redo's, lots of goodies.

I love looking for "finds". It's been awhile since I've had ANY extra money in hand. I wish you could come to my house--you could shop in my basement and find some really cool stuff! I've got chairs, armoires, an old sewing machine, a buffet, a secretary, lots of do-dads, some old doors and windows, hmmmmm....what else?

I hope you do well at your sale this Saturday!!!

Terry said...

You found some wonderful goodies again Jenn! Sure wish I could find some down here.
Love how the breadbox turned out!
I would love to find some old chairs for my garden. People have gotten smart around here and they go for big bucks.
Hope your sale is doing great today!
