Anyway, on to my great yard sale jackpot! Since it was so warm this entire holiday weekend, low to mid 90's, I figured there wouldn't be any yard sales this weekend! Well, I was so wrong! Okay, let me just say, I'm not usually one of those people who swing a u-turn on impulse; but this time I plead guilty! LOL! You see, I was supposed to be going to the grocery story and return somethings at Ross! I almost made it to the stop sign at the corner when I spotted these chairs.
So I "hooked-a-u-ee", as my sons used to say, and got out. I was disappointed when I only saw 3 chairs and started to get back in the car. But then I decided to ask the young man in charge and he was like, "Let me check inside." Out he comes with a fourth chair, Yippee!!! Not only did I find the dining chairs I've searched for the past year, but 2 other great finds also. Please excuse the slightly blurry pics as my camera is having its own issues. lol First the chairs:
I was familiar with the style but usually they are cheap imitations at yard sales. Though they aren't my personal style, like these on Ebay which sell for $120(still a good price),
|These would be more my stlye.|
I also bought this small hutch! It was just what I needed to replace my bakers rack; much more storage. It is laminated which is not a problem for chalk paint; love that stuff! But thankfully, after a good scrubbing and disinfecting, I can use it now since the color actually blends in with my kitchen. : ) This cutie was only $7.00!
I also bought this small video cabinet.
It will work perfect for my bookshelf needs; but will share more in a later post. It's solid wood and even has some cute carvings on it. Closed storage, love it and only $5.00! So those are the scores from my last minute yard sale - total spent $32.00! -_^
I was hoping to get some painting done yesterday, but was really sick since 10am in the morning! Hopefully today I can get something accomplished. Hope you're week is going well.
