Yard Sale Treasures…and off and running to the Southern Bloggers Conference!!

Before I hit the road for a 40 minute drive to Raleigh…

…..to help coordinate and participate in the Southern Bloggers Conference

I want to share with you some treasures that I found:


A rattan tray table, a tole tray, a vintage paint by numbers painting, and two wall baskets!

All for a grand total of $13.00 !!!

Now I must say that the wicker wall baskets were free…from a friend that was moving…

…..she said it was an enticement to visit her…and I will be next week.

I found these treasures several weeks ago…

…..our neighborhood had a neighborhood-wide yard sale.


Our covenants mandate that we are not able to have individual yard sales.

…..only two neighborhood-wide yard sales a year.

In September over 40 homes “set up shop”….and I cruised the neighborhood…looking for treasures….

…..and I think I did very well!

I love the rattan/wicker tray table, but did not quite like the stain…

…..so I bought some Krylon paint.


You can see the leaves that have just started to fall…


I like the white finish….but did you notice something?….My hubby certainly did!

I forgot to lay a cloth on the ground….ooops!!….I was in a hurry!…


I was in a hurry as I still had to pack and do some prep for the Southern Bloggers Conference…


I placed the very newly painted table in the guest room….

Where Suzy from Worthing Court is staying in for the night…

…..as we will be leaving very early in the morning to go to the conference.


I like the table there…next to the chair…for cute bath items…




I love the way it turned out…and love the price tag of $4.00 from the yard sale….


Hope you like it and my guests too!!

I will be joining:

Kari, Laura J., Laura P., and Linda for the Krylon Paint Party!!
