It’s that time of year

So it’s getting to be estate sale/garage sale time of year, and I can’t wait.  We got off to a good start last weekend, in the rain I might add, at an estate sale a couple of streets over.  Actually we had planned to go garage saling early in the morning, but when I opened my eyes it was pouring rain so I turned over and went straight back to sleep.  Later in the day we went to Lowe’s, and I spotted the signs for an estate sale up ahead.  After stopping into an architects conference (at a house nearby) thinking it was the estate sale, we found the correct house, and the one where you didn’t need to have a badge to enter.  The house was in bad shape, but the woman who had lived there had some really neat things.  We got there a little late, but lucky for us that also meant 50% off!!   I took some pictures of our weekend finds… some of them are in need of a little rehab, but that will have to wait for another time.

we got two of these nightstands, and I can’t decide if I like the yellow or if I should paint them…  they are pretty cute yellow though!

so these guys do need some work, maybe a lot of work, but I thought they had a good design.  I need to find some cool fabric for them and some fresh paint.

this one i just thought was funny because the animals seem to always be in the pictures.  I took the chairs out of the garage for the pictures, and when I came back Striper was escaping, and Kitty was desperately trying to sit on the chair.

this is the last piece of furniture, and I thought it might look good with some new wallpaper in the squares.  It was really cheap so we’ll just see where it fits in…

Other than that we got some pictures and some silver spoons and forks.  Pretty good for one days sale, although maybe not so good for the wallet.  I went a little crazy so I’m just happy we paid garage sale prices!

happy garage saling!
