Thrifty Treasures for August 2

 

     There was actually a garage sale right around the corner from my house on Friday. There are NEVER garage sales on Fridays, they just don’t do that here. Anywhooo, Murphy Grace and I walked to it and spent a whopping $5, but we had to run home and get the car to carry our loot.

     This table needs some help, but I have already started on taking care of that cracking veneer.

     This guy is tall and check out the little feet!

     Then some little stuff……

     That mirror has already been painted, the silver polished and the serving pieces have been washed.

     For the $5 spent, I had a blast and Murphy Grace got to add to his list of neighborhood buddies. He likes to take himself on walkabout often, so the more people that know him and where he belongs, the better.

     Make sure that you visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality to check out all of this weekends Thrifty Treasures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

     I thought that I would also include a shot from my walk yesterday around Montana de Oro State Park.

Great finds! I love the furniture ~ can't wait to see "after" shots of what you've decided to do with them.

I've never picked up "silver" from the thrift shops. Do they clean up well?
