Yard Sale Treasures

Today I decided to take my kids to a couple yard sales. They complained at first, but once they got there they loved it as much as me. They were fascinated by everything that people were getting rid of. I explained to them that one persons trash is another person treasures.That proved to be right for us today. Look above at this fabulous table we found. It is perfect, there is rust, chipped  creamy paint and so much charm. The best part??? It was only $5.00. We aren't sure where it will go, but eventually it will find a place. The top is made from old ceiling tiles. Heres another picture of the top~
Then we were off to another sale and we found this adorable chair. My daughter fell in love with it immediately. I loved it, but thought, "another chair???" Then, Avery came up with the perfect use for it......a chair for her American Girl doll!! Sold, and for only $5.00.  With some white paint and some distressing, it will be just right. It was our lucky day!!

So, for only $10.00 I got two treasures, but the best treasure was spending a fun Saturday morning with my kids. Thanks for visiting:) C

  1. Hi Cheryl! I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! You are doing such a great job, keep the posts coming! I just started a blog myself and I think we have the same tastes for chippy, rusty, vintage, and fleamarket finds! By the way, I absolutely love the tin ceiling it for sale?!!! :) Can't wait to see what you post next!
    Have a wonderful evening,
