It has been quite a while since I have shared a Friday Frugal Finds post but in the last few weeks I have found and purchased several things I couldn’t wait to share with you. Since we are moving, I am not in the market for lots of home furnishings, but I do have a few key pieces on my list. And of course I have been hitting yard sales, thrift stores, and stalking facebook yard sale sites for baby girl clothes and other baby stuff. I would be glad to share some tips and tricks for buying secondhand baby stuff if you are interested – so leave me a comment or drop an email and I can write a few of those posts. If not, I will just focus mainly on the home stuff!
So my first find a few weeks ago was this solid wood end table. I have had an replacement end table on my list for quite a while!
I walked up to a seller at my parking lot yard sale that I have bought a good bit of baby clothes from before and immediately started admiring this table. I LOVED the beadbord looking design on the sides and the wood stained top. She said she was asking $10, but then immediately said but for you I can do $8.00. Gotta love when the seller barters their own stuff down for you! I enjoy doing repeat business from several people that I see each week at my parking lot yard sales and being nice pays off!
Then I came across this photo on facebook from Dear Lillie. And I couldn’t get that miniature rocking chair out of my mind.
A few weeks later I came across this wood rocking chair on a facebook yard sale site for $15 and I snatched it up. Perfect addition to the nursery once refinished!
And then this bench I bought for $5.00. I just couldn’t walk away for that price. It matches the style of my kitchen table and chairs so I could use it there or use it as a bench at the end of a bed or in a hallway. It had some major scratches and damage to the top but all that can be fixed with sanding and refinishing.
And one more thing – I have missed decorating and DIYing so much with our house on the market no projects to do that I actually worked on all these pieces in the last 2 weeks and they are all finished!! Next week I will share one of these pieces I refinished, an update on house and baby, and another room in our house that I haven’t showed you before – so be sure to check back next week.
What have you found at yard sales this spring? Or refinished lately?
