Free Treasures for July 19th

 

 

This week I didn’t go to one garage sale…..but I did just happen to check CraigsList at about noon today and I am so glad that I did.

     There was a listing from someone that had a garage sale and everything that they had left was FREE. Okay, we know that usually what is left over was crude, but not this time.

     These things came home with me at no cost……

 

 

 

     Loving the ottoman and the chair. The picture is scary, but I grabbed it for the canvas. It is huge and I just can’t afford to buy them that big new. (Sorry castle scene, you will be gone next week)

     I would have grabbed more, but I was running out of room in the car and I felt a bit greedy:)

     Make sure to visit all of the great treasures at Southern Hospitality, the bargains knock my socks off every week.

Hi Gwen,
Really nice and free makes them even sweeter.

I have big frame kind of like yours, I painted the frame black and covered the canvas with batting and fabric. We use it as a big bulletin board in our breakfast room.

I can't believe you found those things for free! The makeovers should be fun.

Gwen, Cute chair w/the woven seat. Once you re-wrap that ottoman cushion with some dacron batting, it will be plump and comfy! Fantastic freebies... Sue

I love the little feet on that ottoman. I have to control myself when I'm in situations like that. I am greedy sometimes:-)

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

YES...Gotta love free! You got some amazing pieces. I know what you mean about feeling greedy. They were giving away free pumpkins at one of my favorite stores last year, and it was REALLY hard not to take them all! I did end up with 10 or 12 though. Probably still a bit greedy. sorry.
