No vacancy’s, the guest room is full for the month of July. My Mom and Step Dad are visiting the cabin, I hadn’t planned on giving it a makeover it just fell into place when I started picking things up at an all day city wide garage sale. My friend Erin and I had the best time picking through other peoples things and finding some goodies for my place.
I actually keep a garage sale list on my phone and in that one trip I scored almost everything on my list. Every time I loaded something new into her mini van I got excited. Making a list is a must if you like to garage sale, there’s no reason dragging things home that I have no place for. I even take along a tape measure and have wall sizes listed on my cell. It’s saved me several times from buying something that’s the wrong size.
Once you’re hooked on garage sales; department store prices seem so high. It always amazes me how cheap things are being sold for, and often times the items are new and still in their packaging.
The makeover came together so easily it must have been meant to be. I’ll be back later to show you the headboard before I gave it a little love, so stay tuned for that.
Here’s the list of things I scored at garage sales:
- Headboard $2
- 2 Ethan Allen Side Tables $4
- Vintage Bedskirt 50¢
- Vintage Chenille Bedspread $5
- 2 Ethan Allen Patchwork Pillow Covers 50¢
Store purchased items:
- 2 Farmhouse Cage Lights $40
Grand Total: $52
