First Real Garage Sale Finds of the Season

by - May 19, 2014

I was able to get a little garage sale shopping in this weekend.  It felt good to be back on the hunt, although I didn't nab as much as I would have liked to.  Here's my haul:

The smaller wicker basket has already been painted white and will be added to our linen closet.  I have a Frenchy makeover in mind for the larger basket ala Lin at A Tiny Cottage in the Woods.  See her beautiful French basket here.  
I just had to have the pig cutting board.  I have a chalkboard paint makeover in store for him.  
These vintage finds will likely go into my OkioBVintage Etsy shop. I think I might have to keep the bling buttons though.

I'm pretty happy with my first official haul of the season. Everything set me back about $10.  And now I happily have some new projects in the works.

  1. For some weird reason I love the cutting boards in the animal shapes. I am sure all your finds will be more than beautiful when you make them over.

  2. i love your "vison" for all of your finds. clever girl...

  3. It looks like you found some nice things. I had baskets like the small lined one you show, in two different sizes. I have used them all over the place. I used four of them for the first dresser makeover I did that I had found on the road side. That big basket is really nice. I love how Lin did hers; that will be great inspiration for you.

  4. I'd say you did pretty darned good! AND I love those BLINGY buttons!!! xo Diana

  5. Good morning, Jeanine!

    GREAT finds! And $10 for all? Fabulous!!! The little pig will be awesome with a chalkboard paint makeover.

    Hope you'll share your Frenchy makeover for the big basket ~ and thanks for sharing mine! :)
