Garage Sale Treasures

My hubby and I LOVE going to garage/yard sales! It is "our thing" we do every saturday morning spring & summer. It's like a treasure hunt to us. Here are the treasures we found this weekend...

My mother in law bought me one of these vintage wear-ever cookie guns several years ago and it reminded me of making christmas cookies as a little girl with one my mom had. I love it! Now my daughters have the same memories.They love making cookies with this! I bought my 23 yr old daughter a battery operated cookie press gun last christmas and she said it didn't work when I found this I snapped it up for her. I think I'll surprise her with it around the holidays this year. Paid $5 for it at our local flea market.

Found this christmas tree at the Salvation Army for $4. I plan on painting the urn a creamy white and dressing up the tree for my bedroom during Christmas.

Now on to my FAVORITE find!!! I have seen such great makeovers on vintage barrel cane chairs, so I was delighted to find these at a garage sale. They were marked $15 each, but we got them for $7.50 each because there was a broken section (which is fixable)

I am thinking of having them reupholstered in a tan linen looking fabric or maybe a cool aqua color...not quite sure yet. They are pretty comfortable! May use them in my sitting room/office which is off of my bedroom.

I'll be sure to show you how they look after the makeover.

I'm linking up with Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality blog, so please go check out all the other treasures people have found!

your chairs will be worth the effort to do the make-over. $7.50 is the cheapest I've ever seen them. SCORE!

Those chairs will be gorgeous however you choose to redo them. And you got such a fantastic deal on them!

That chair looks fabulous and I love sitting in that kind of chair while talking with your friends thru phone or watching movie. I love it :)
