Yard Sale Finds 8-23-09

I have always wanted some of these balls in a bowl or basket. The balls were on clearence at Craft Warehouse for $1 and $1.25 each. The one covered with jute I made myself out of a styrophome ball. The basket I picked up at Goodwill for $1.



Tin Plaque $1


I found this new 8 1/2 x 10 picture frame at the local thrift store for $1.50. It's distressed black.


This large mirror was $2 at a yard sale.


We're getting close with our addition. I primed all 1300 square feet yesterday. It took me 6 hours with a spray gun. We also finished the deck off our new master bedroom. It won't belong now. I can't wait to decorate it with all of the thrifty treasures I've been accumulating the past several months!

  5. I like that you made your own decorative ball by using the jute. It would cost an arm and a leg in a store. I say paint the mirror and make it beachy/cottage-y.

  8. I love your finds! I found a really old mirror from the 60's a few weeks ago... I can't decide whether to paint the frame or not.

    The little balls are cute! I babysit my 15 month old grand-daughter, so all knick knacky stuff is packed away until she's older. lol

  11. You got some good things. I love yarn and fabric balls and the basket. Nice frame and mirror. I'd paint to either white or black and distress it.

  16. I love the dish you are displaying the balls in! And the tin plaque is cute - I would have bought it too. There is a mirror just like that in my office. It's oak, and I've been wondering if I could convince my boss to let me paint it. It doesn't match anything in the office.
