Their trash, my treasure!

Another weekend of garage sale-ing!
My hubby got the day off last minute and I was so thankful to have company. Looking for garage sales alone is no fun!

Here's some pics of our finds!
I'll give you a run down on our finds! 

The garage organizer will be perfect to hold out shovel, broom, rake, etc. 

The office chair for the hubs is solid wood, so he's going to sand it down and stain it a dark color. . .it'll be gorgeous!

The blurred out object in the middle is a present for my sis, and she usually reads my blog and I didn't want to ruin the surprise. . .should have thought about it before the pic!!

The matching chairs will have the seats re-covered. I'll add some padding and upholstery to them. Can't decide whether to paint them or leave them the natural wood. . .any suggestions?!

I got some glass cloches that will look so cute around my house!

The small can of paint on the ground is a pearlized paint from the UK. It was $1...how can I pass up some fun new paint all the way from the UK for only one dollar ?!

The book you see laying on the office chair. . .
"What to Expect When Your Wife is Expanding". No, this isn't an announcement. My hubby actually wanted to get it. He thought it would be funny, and it was only 50 cents.
This will either scare him, or prepare him . . . we shall see!!

 Zooming in, check out this . . . thing!
I don't know what it is or was for, but I love the finial top and the peeling paint & patina! It looks great as a decorative accessory in my house!

One of the cloches close up. A canister for our kitchen, and an empty frame that was only 10 cents! That will make a great chicken wire memory board!
 
If you missed out garage sale-ing with me, well...maybe next time?!

You found some good junk! Wish I was there to garage sale with you! I'm laughing over the "What to expect when your wife is expecting!". Haha

A little sad that the gift is not for this wonderful sister!

Oh my goodness you got some great things!! I agree going alone is a bit boring!! I should have come with you, I did a few stops solo by my hood, but no luck.
