Yard Sales


This morning before I went in to work Molly and I planned to hit some neighborhood yard sales in Beavertown. We had a very productive morning. She spent about $15 and so did I. Here is my $15 worth of stuff. The tall brown shelf unit will be painted white. I’m not sure what I will do with it, but I’m redoing my bedroom this summer and that might be part of the plan. The candlesticks have already been painted white and so has the picture frame. I took it apart and sprayed it, the mat will also be sprayed when I know what I will use it for. The pillows look handcrafted and I have carried them all around my house and don’ t known where to use them, so I put them back in a bag and will incorporate them into my bedroom plan. I love the mirror I purchased also although I’m not sure where it will go, possibly replace one of my current mirrors. I've already changed the faded lamp shade and my "new" lamp looks great!

Molly got a coffee pot and a nice mirror to hang on the wall also, some kitchen supplies and a couple wall shelves for her apartment. They will need to be painted also. It was cold and rainy all morning but there seemed to be a lot of people out poking around at the sales.
