Debra from Mountain Breaths had been eyeing an iron bed for her guest room. She says, “I love the early 20th century time worn iron bedsteads. You may have heard me squealing when I found a similar one for ten dollars.” Yep, you heard right – $10! Debra pretty much stole both the headboard and footboard from a garage sale for only ten bucks. All the pieces needed were a light sanding and coat of spray paint, and now they’re ready to receive guests!

As soon as Rachel from Holy Craft saw a large framed painting at a garage sale, visions of Restoration Hardware’s classy subway art swirled in her head. She whipped out the paint and vinyl to transform the artwork into a piece she can truly love. And would you believe it cost less than $5 total??? That’s an amazing steal for such a large piece of artwork, especially when you consider the $550 price tag of Rachel’s inspiration!

Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected scored a free lazy Susan at a garage sale when the owner happily threw it in with Sherry’s other findings. There was no way Sherry would turn down an opportunity to find a way to turn it into something fabulous, and, of course, she doesn’t disappoint! The once old, tired lazy Susan now has a smart new look with a bold alphabet design around the rim.

Clock Coffee Table

This project from Corrie at Red Hen Home is one of my favorite kinds. Not only does it look like it’s straight from a catalog, but it also gives new life to an old round coffee table that was sporting a big old crack. After nabbing a round maple table from a garage sale for […Read More]
