(this hutch was $75 dollars at a yard sale)
The other day I was driving down a winding country road.
You know, the one next to the chicken barn right after the fork in the road.
Out of the corner of my eye–I saw it.
Something that made my heart beat faster. Something that made my eyes light up and my hands twitch and my hair curl up at the ends a little more and sing “Don’t Stop Believing” at the top of my lungs…
…a multi-family yard sale sign.
More than just one family’s abandoned treasures on display for only a quarter. Welcome to yard sale season. Before your next trip, here are some of my favorite yard sale finds ever and what I made from them.
I took the end of a fruit crate.
You know—the ones that you can find at a yard sale that are falling apart.
I added a door knob to make hooks for the pantry.
Find boxes of old flooring that doesn’t really match.
Why not make a book?
Speaking of books.
Literally one of my favorite things on the planet.
I’ve found books for FREE before at yard sales. The spine will be damaged or the cover ripped up. More projects for me.
Like this book page wreath.
Find scraps of molding for a quarter?
What could you make with them?
Why not make wood letter blocks to spell out a word?
Find an old wood table with scratches and dents?
Oh good. Me, too.
Here’s my $25 yard sale table.
Find an old cutting board at a yard sale?
Here’s a way to make it the centerpiece of the kitchen.
If you discover half a rocking chair–tell them you’ll take it for .50.
Then take the spindles and make this.
If you find a coffee table with a rough top–no worries.
Just paint it.
Turn into a yard sale and find an old door?
It becomes a bench.
Scoop up all the old baskets you can find.
Then spray paint them and add numbers.
I hope this inspired you.
I hope you found a few ideas.
I hope you create and dream and decorate your home with your new treasures.
There is nothing better than a yard sale sign.
Especially if it goes all amazing and adds a little multi. 🙂
