Friday Faves + Frugal Finds: Headboard + bench for guest room

I haven’t been doing as much yardsaling or thrifting lately.  It has been super hot and we have been busy on the weekends plus I have been busy working on projects, some of which you will see next week! Smile

But I did stop by my parking lot yard sale 2 weeks ago and was so glad I did because I found 2 very specific things on my list.

I picked up this metal full size headboard and rails for $20.  I had been specifically looking for a metal/iron headboard for my guest room.  I have an old wood one in there now, but it is so short you can’t see it above the mattress.  I will paint this one white and show you the room/bed soon!

And I picked up this wood bench for $5.00!   I just love this style of rustic/farmhouse bench even though this is more of a pre-fab one and not an old one or built out of hardwood.  I couldn’t pass it up for $5.00!  It will probably also get painted when I paint the other furniture in my guest room.

So there’s my finds – I was super excited to find these things on my list.  Looking forward to showing you what I do with them.

Would love to see what you found!  Share a picture with me on facebook or shoot me an email.

    My friend and I went to one of our usual Church Sales they have every year. I was so excited to find a light green loveseat and ottoman that matched for $50.00! They are in great condition. And I got. Coach purse for $2.00! I wasn’t sure if it was a real coach but I keyed in the series nu. And up came the purse I bought! I’m a very thrifty shopper also. And like you say, “I had that on my list”!

    What do you paint you’re wooden furniture with? I mean what type paint. Thank you
