Garage Sale Finds

Super excited to share this morning's garage sale finds.  So many sales, but so little time since my husband's niece is getting married later today.  Here's what I scooped up:
How about a nice old whiskey barrel for $5?
This ice bucket with stand was also $5.  I'm going back and forth on whether or not to paint it white or keep the metal color.  The basket is definitely getting a makeover.
The green chalkboard reminds me of elementary school and the gold mirror is getting a chalkboard makeover.  Oh and can't forget the vintage 1938 math book.

I could have spent the entire day shopping but, alas, I could not.  How'd you do?

I got just a few things so you did way better. Is that mirror old? It looks old I have one in my bathroom that looks just like it. The wine bucket on the stand is intersting. but the barrell is the best find.

Great finds, Jeanine! I always enjoy seeing what you pick up. I haven't been to a garage sale in a while, maybe next weekend.

Have a great weekend!

Almost nothing will stop me from going to garage sales on Saturday morning. Iwent yard sailing the morning of my brothers wedding and my mom was mad. I said they aren't being married till 2 O'clock in the afternoon...I was there in plenty of time! Love your finds. I love your other blog One Cheap B*tch, so I became a follower. Would love to win a gift certificate to AC Moore, so thanks for the chance.
