~a few new garage sale finds~

So sorry for my absence!
I was sick last week and am just now getting around to blogging again.
I did manage to go to a few garage sales and I scored big time.

First up is this great table.
I paid $50 for it, which is a lot for me, especially since aI didn't know what I was going to do with it.
But, it's really old and it has a ton of detail.
So, I brought it home and turned it into a bar cart in the corner of our dining room.
I added a round tray to the center so everything would sit flat as the base was not totally flat.

{The basket on the wall was a old garage sale find for a quarter}

Next up is this wooden gutter.
It was a whopping $5.00 and I bought it with the intent to use it on our chalkboard door to hold chalk.

Well, wouldn't you believe, it was the PERFECT size!

I love that I didn't have to do a thing to it except screw it in.

I don't even know what you call this piece, but it has a really cool gold base with marble top and glass dome. 
I believe that was $10.00.

And this oil painting I paid $30.00 for.
It's really old and I just loved the colors.
Besides that, I'm kinda into oil paintings right now.

{metal stool was also a old garage sale find, I believe it was $30.00 as well}

Cannot wait to go junking again this weekend!
Just so you know, I don't always have this good of luck. I just happened to find the good stuff this time around!

The silver base under the cheese holder looks just like my glass punch bowl base.

I'm crazy about that metal stool and the wooden tray for your chalk door. You are awesome!

Wow, that was a lucky day! Sometimes I find a great neighborhood garage sale event and pick up things for a consignment store in town. I get lil' checks here and there from them and it's nice. Your items would have been great for that! (But I get why you're keeping them.)

I think the government can make a rule for all the vehicle manufacturer to limit their product each year. t can reduce the fuel usage significantly.
