I found this for $4 it looks like an old oil pan or something but it fits my sad excuse of a succulent garden!
Another thrift store find, the candle holder, still has the price tag on the underside from one of my favorite, yet expensive stores The Weed Lady. Of course I sprinkled it with shells!
My summer mantle
I have always loved the angel vines.
I know I left you hanging on last week with glimpses of my bedroom makeover but something else came up like making a thousand dollars at my garage sale and it became an emergency redo of my family room. I have lived in this room for 6 weeks while Dayton healed and frankly I was just about sick of it. I have never been happy with it and sold one of my leather couches in my sale and put the one that used to be in my family room down in the basement/rec room. Now you know I am a frugal one so I went to the only place that I could afford new slipcovered white furniture of my dreams, Ikea! A few hours later I had my family room of my dreams. Thanks to some great inspiration this weekend I went to my local thrift store and nursery today and purchased the rest of my items to complete it! I will type more later, Dayton has the all clear from his surgeon and I am going to drop him off at the golf range! Enjoy the pics of my little slice of Heaven!
Hubby's aunt cut these for me from her gorgeous garden! They laughed at how much I treasured them!
Two of my thrift store finds today, the planter and the corbel, sit in front of our summer fireplace. (it does not get used! )
This just makes me so happy! I was really having a hard time breathing when I purchased the furniture, I was so excited! The lady who checked us out laughed because I told her to be patient with me while I paid with my garage sale money, Let's just say it was a stack of bills, mostly small bills! She was happy for me!
This frame caught my eye at the same antique garage sale that I bought the blue tote, it had no price so I asked and the lady said "how bout a buck! " Um....yeah!!!
My summer scent! Coconut Lime... reminds me of Florida! I really want one of the Volcano scented ones!
My sign that Mel made for me on top of my hutch that I once again moved back out into the kitchen. All those bottles came from the same sale of the dollar basket, I think I paid pennies for them!
I literally bought the last two Ikea Jenny Lund chairs that our store had, so glad we got up early!!! I would like to purchase an ottoman eventually.
My makeover cost under a thousand dollars! That was mostly the furniture and a little left over for accessories!! Thank goodness for my garage sale ads in the paper and on Craigslist!
The pictures just don't do it justice, you will just have to come visit and see for yourself!
We live in this room, although I swore it would be more of a sitting room, it just seems to be where we hang out. So we have to have a tv in here! Like the dresser? Five dollars and a coat of paint and she is now a beauty and houses all of our dvds and video games.
