Yard Sale Yummies!

I went Yard Sale Shopping and got WAY TOO MANY THRIFTY TREASURES! (I'm slaving away so that you can SOON see what I'm working on)
I got this slightly out dated HALF BARREL-END TABLE The Barrel Wood is gorgeous, but the fake wood table top and the random wood legs weren't working for this little fella

So I gave the legs and the top a shiny new coat of spray paint, so that all the woodwork focused on the barrel's rustic wood. (and because black is the new modern)
Look at the beautiful old wood/metal/and nails!
He's not stickin around though...
I'll be selling him at THIS CRAFT FAIR.

I asked the lady how much she wanted for this, and she said...

"That thing's so old, you can have it for FREE!"

(Umm...SURE!)

I wish we had yard sales like that here (San Diego). No "flea markets" either. The closest we have are thrift stores. I keep my eyes open, but I can't help to be jealous of the fabulous finds you guys have in other parts of the country - where antique doesn't mean last year's iPhone.

My husband does come home with some great stuff sometimes, though - and you have inspired me to do some makeovers of my own. I will be sure to post when I am done. =)

That's a pretty cute table. We don't get many good garage sales over here either (Austin), especially since I live near downtown. And the closest Goodwill just has a lot of junk.

As I say "Cheap is good, free is best." There you go...isn't that just the best! Thanks for coming by to visit.
