I've Had Some Good Luck

I had a lot of luck this weekend! I often get up Saturday mornings and hit up a few garage sales. Sometimes my mom goes with me, and other times I drag Mr Wonderful along. I ended up going alone this weekend (which is rare). I did well. Here is what I got:
This vanity stool. The base is in really good condition. It was only $5 and the hard part of removing the upholstery has already been done. I'm trying to decide what color/pattern material to cover it with. Not sure where I'm going to put it. I'm thinking either the laundry room or the foyer. Decisions, decisions.
A picture for the dining room for $1. The frame has a few dings and it is missing the glass, but it will do for now. I paid $6 for a 5ft ladder. Not sure what the plan for this is, but I'm considering making it into shelves and putting it in the front bathroom.

And my favorite find of the weekend was this vintage steamer trunk. It's far from perfect condition- there is a crack in the top, both handles are broken along with the lock, it needs a good cleaning and the inside needs to be redone, but at $15 how could I pass it up. It's going to be the coffee table in our sunroom. The lady I got it from said she was going to send it to the dump. Can you believe that?!

Have you found anything good lately?


  1. I haven't been to a garage sale in forever! I know. Gasp. Maybe I will join if you go this weekend :) The only thing good I've found lately is a great price for zucchini at a local farmers market. For me that's a win, haha.

  2. My daughter and I love going to estate found some great things...

    1. Estate sales are so much fun. I love old things! I'm currently on the hunt for an old set of china. Thanks for visiting :)
