Garage Sale season is in full swing! Just about every weekend there are at least 3 or four communities hosting garage sales. It's fantastic- I go to one area and usually hit about 20 garage sales (give or take a few)! That's amazing, and I've gotten some AMAZING deals. Like the Robeez shoes. Granted, there's no bun in my oven, but could I pass up $1.50 for cute Robeez? I don't think so!

And this little gem- which will be painted black by the end of this week (fingers crossed) was only $5!
I got a couple of things for my display areas and added a little spray paint and they're now much cuter- $2 for the brass thing and $.25 (what a deal!!!) for the pitcher thing. Seriously, the brass was making my eyes burn. It was so funny, the old lady I bought that from told me it had been on her mantle for almost thirty years!!! My hubby used engine paint on it, and it worked brilliantly. Just think- its made to cover and stick to something that is dirty and greasy, so you know its going to stick to garage sale junk too! I used Valspar Brilliant Silver on the pitcher.
This last one isn't a garage sale find, but I did get it at the dollar store. Sorry I don't have a before pic, but it started out as a plain old glass vase. I spray painted the interior first thinking that it would look REALLY shiny- almost like a mirrored surface. Well, I was wrong. The paint (Valspar Brilliant Silver spray paint), doesn't look shiny through glass, it looks dull. So, I gave it a really light coat on the exterior so that it looks shiny in some places and dull in others. It gave it a really great look!
