Weekend Junkin Finds

We went junkin this past weekend. Rummage sales, Goodwill, you name it. Do you ever get home and wonder why did I buy that? Or you find the perfect item you picked up and purchased wasn't so perfect when you get home. A hole in something, a corner missing off of a picture frame or a big chip out of that white transferware. Hate that.


Anyways, here are a few items that we purchased without regrets this weekend.





This giant gold frame was a must have at only $6.00. I am going to have my husband cut a board for the inside and turn it into a chalk board for the dinning room.







I bought this little wicker purse for only $.50, it looks great with a posy pin and hangs in my front hallway. Thought I could use it to store little things that we might need before we leave the house.
Found a pair of buffet lamps at only $4.00 each. Not that fond of the gold, but love the black shades and think thay will look great in the dinning room with a coat of cream paint.






Last, but not least the FREE chandelier. Yep found this beauty curb side. Thought it may work on my porch with candles and a coat of paint over the gold. Thinking maybe robins egg blue??


Hopefully this coming up weekend we are heading to the 100 mile rummage sale....

I just got a free chandelier this weekend myself! Sadly it's mainly plastic but I have a fab idea for it and hope to share it on my blog sometime soon :0) Awesome finds! Blessings, Katy

Hey Junk Mamma! Just found your blog. Wanted to give you a little tip on the large frame. I bought one of those exact frames about 6 years ago. Only mine had the footprints poem in it. Anyway, I covered the sides with tape and spray painted mine into a chalkboard. You can find the spray paint at any hardware store by the spray paint. Hope this saves you some time and money.

What a great chandy! I love that & it would be great painted. Thanks for joining my party. Hope you'll come back on Monday & join up again & be sure to mention the party on your blog so others can come & visit too.

Love your name, junk mamas! Nice to meet you.

Chandalier was a FAB curbside find! Robins Egg blue would e great! Unless it's a soft canvass, don't even worry about having hubby cut out a piece of wood...I JUST posted tonight about a frame I sprayed with chalkboard paint...right OVER the picture (it was textured and you can see the texture but was flat - if that makes any sense).
