I actually was out early on Saturday morning and decided I would stop some yard sales on my way to my destination. I got some great home decor items!
Here is what I found:
A very large beveled mirror!
The picture does not do it justice – I love the detail on the frame and the bevel in the mirror. I just don’t love the color but nothing that a little spray paint can’t change!
Paid $10 (I walked through a local antique store after buying this and saw many mirrors in there like this one for $50 and up!)
A square decorative wall hanging.
This goes perfect in my bedroom (which is currently getting a mini-makeover, more on that later :)
2 tall candlesticks
I had been looking for tall candlesticks to go on the floor by my fireplace. I saw some at Kohl’s that were $49.99 EACH! Whew – too much for me!
These still have tags on the bottom from PartyLite! (Partylite is a home decor party line like Home Interiors focusing on candles.) In other words, they were not cheap!
She was asking $10.00 for one but said she had another one that had gotten broken. I looked at the broken one and realized I could glue it and no one would ever know. So, she let me have both of them for $10!
Don’t worry, this has already been transformed with my friend, Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint! (And I am trying some antique gold Rub n Buff to bring out the design – more on that later.)
Paid $0.50! (Plan to use this as the base for my 2 or 3 ball Ballard topiary knockoff!)
How about you? Found any good yardsale or thrift store finds lately?
