Two for the Money

Last weekend I went to a yard sale which to my surprise turned out to be an estate sale also.  It was the second day of the sale but I still managed to score quite a few items for the low, low total of $10.00.

My found treasures included 2 garlands, 2 tables, 2 mirrors, 2 baskets, 2 glass floats and 2 candle holders.   It’s the Noah’s Ark of home décor!

One of the tables has already been painted and will be featured in a future post.    Here is a sneak peek at the original top and a glance at my turquoise painted toe nails.  Anyone care to guess what color this top got painted?

The other table (plant stand?) I left just as it was because I liked the look.   It is unique in that the wooden and iron top comes off to reveal an X shaped frame.

This adorable little table found a home next to the stairwell.   I placed a framed watercolor print on it and a small aqua colored hurricane jar that I purchased at Old Time Pottery for 99 cents.    The fake ficus insisted on being in the picture.

I always liked the story of Noah's Ark and the idea of starting anew by rescuing the things you like and leaving the rest behind…

Wow; love the loot--you certainly have great style and taste in picking out some awesome pieces. Your painted toe-nails are pretty too! (my fave color)
