Garage sale finds!

Well I never really do things at garage sales. I have nothing against buying anything at garage sales...I actually think garage sales are super cool. You see I have this little car and can never fit anything into it. Well this all changed yesterday.

I was out jogging through my neighborhood and saw a garage sale with all of this furniture! I had to stop. My husband and I have our first house but are slowly filling it with furniture we like...which takes time! I found a huge table and two chairs for the lovely price of $10! Where there is a will there is a way....I ran home and got my car and somehow was able to drive my finds home! The table was sticking out of the trunk but luckily I lived two streets away!

So today I painted my table and one of the chairs with white paint. The table is going to be my new art table and the chairs will find a home somewhere in our house! I am going to find some new fabric this week to upholster the seats. I can't wait! Here are some before and after shots of the furniture. The table was many dots! I had to scrape those babies off before painting...yuck!

Meanwhile I never got to finish my Christmas cards that I was going to do this weekend....oh well at least I have some new furniture:)

$10! You can't beat the price! Show us the table after you finish painting it. ( plus you won't mind it getting "dirty" with work projects) Each splater of paint or scratch in the finish is done with love of what you are doing..right?
