Rummage Sale Treasures

On Thursday my daughter and I went to a local church rummage sale.. They had tons of furniture ! I have been wanting a white wicker chair for my front porch and I got one ! It was $10.00 and I had my youngest son give it a little coat of paint..I would like a bigger more elaborate chair , but this one looks alot better than the plastic adorondack chair that was there !
 My daughter put in an offer on a house last week , it was accepted and now we are waiting for the home inspection / appraisal to go through. She lives in an apartment right now , and she wanted a few pieces to paint for her new place.. She got the pedestal table for $40.00 ! We painted it white yesterday with a homemade chalk paint recipe that I found here .. It works fabulously ! We used Behr paint from home depot, paint and primer in one.This is like the table I bought on Craigs list for $200.00 , It has a leaf , and seats at least 6.. Now we have to find chairs ! There is another church rummage sale next week so I guess we will be shopping :)
 She got this little end table for $5.00 , it looks white in the photo , but its actually painted yellow with the same chalk paint recipe. Then she used glaze on it to get in all the recessed areas.. Really cute ! WE painted the hardware with the chalk paint too.
 She also got this armoire and dresser .. They have so much detail on them and are going to look great painted. Both pieces she got for $60.00! She is going to use the dresser for her tv , like all the ones that we see on pinterest :)
 We got the frame last week at a garage sale and we are going to put a chalkboard in it ..
She got a fabulous deal on all the furniture ! You can see the table is yellow in this bottom photo.. $110.00 for a kitchen table and leaf, end table, dresser and armoire !
Thank you as always for all your nice comments and for visiting my blog ! I appreciate each and every one of you !

Great finds, there, Priscilla. Congrats to your daughter, her place is going to look just beautiful. And, I bet Mama has some crochet/sewing/crafting gifts lined up to make for the new place, too. xo
