I love garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores like a fat kid loves cake.
I love finding a great bargain, a treasure in a pile of junk.
Erin said it best: Bargains are my crack.
Here's some crack I've recently acquired....
Textile will upholster a little ottoman and make some pillows, bamboo table needs a real top-not plexiglass and a cute little footstool tucked under it. Ceramic froggy reminds me of my Grammie (great-grandmother) who collected frogs, folk art is stunning in person! Black and white art will be getting a nice frame soon and the coffee table is begging for some lacquer-not sure on color yet as it's probably going in the basement TV room.
If you follow me on Twitter you saw this earlier this week:
Scored a bust similar to this one for $13 today, giving him a makeover. #ilovegaragesales #whitespraypaint http://t.co/uYDMiav2bs

Here he is, all spiffed up with some white spray paint, on my nightstand.
He watches me while I sleep.
I also snagged another kiddie guitar for $2 to hang under this one in the boys room.
Kind of like Jenny did:
Their bedroom is so close to being done, just need to figure out a bookcase situation. I can't wait to share it with you!
In the meantime, I have one wall left to paint in the living room and then I'll be moving on down the hallway and into the dining room. Then I have all the doors to do.
I'm really looking forward to having this all done soon, I'm SO.DONE.PAINTING!
Tonight I'm taking a break and we're heading to the MT State Fair with the fam.
I'll be back next week, hopefully with some pictures.
Have a great weekend!
