Garage Sale Finds Reinvented….

Remember when I told you that we scored pretty big at last weekend’s garage sales? I shared in an earlier post this week about our old chippy white tool box that we got for $3 that now sits on top of our computer desk and about our globe that we got for $2.  Well, another one of our finds was a gold frame.  I’m pretty sure he didn’t spend more than about $2 on it, if that.   He brought it home knowing exactly what he would do with it!  Since we are so inspired by farmhouse style, we’ve been slowly adding more and more of those details to our home.  We put it over our Eddy West half-moon table in our entry way, and we love it!

Here is a shot of the frame before he reinvented it! 

We also found this old wooden desk chair.  We’ve had one of these on our wish list forever, so it’s awesome to cross one more thing off that long, long list.  It was in pretty sad shape, and it was missing the wheels on it, so we cleaned it up and added some polyurethane and wheels to make it as good as new!

It’s so encouraging to be able to make small changes to each of our rooms in order to have the things that surround us also inspire us with the style that we love and appreciate.  It’s even more encouraging that those small changes are only costing a small amount of moo-lah plus the labor that we put into it.

I’m linking up with Mustard Seed Creations and The Inspired Room today!  Check out all the things that have been reinvented out in blogland and all the things that are inspiring everyone this week!

Happy Weekend~

The Prudent Homemaker - I love your entry table; it’s very beautiful!

Talysa - You had me at “Garage Sale Finds”…oh and I do believe we share the same sofa…although yours has the sassiest throw pillows EVER! Where ever did you find those? I could almost guess…if you are like most of my blog friends, you made them. I envy those people. I’d also love to know the color of your yellow walls…they are so pretty…and yellow paint (or picking one at least)historically hates me. :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by and giving encouraging words. Prayers are much appreciated right now. So glad to meet you.

Miss Mustard Seed - You struck it rich with some of these finds! I love the old office chair. I found one last summer for $10, but the one I found was in excellent condition. Yours has so much character. I can’t wait to see it spruced up.
