I’ve pretty much quit going to yard sales, not because I don’t love it but because I just don’t need to bring home more stuff. This year I’m trying to simplify our way of life and fewer things in the house is part of the program. But a few weeks ago my neighbor told me she was having a yard sale the next day and invited me down to her garage to get an early peek a the stuff her mom had brought over to sell. (Thanks Lindsay and Gloria!)
Soooo, I ended up bringing home a few new things.
I have a weakness for vintage children’s chairs and this pink one had me at hello. I love the sweet details on it, from the holes to the handles to the scallop detail below the seat. It’s also the perfect kind of vintage – still sturdy but distressed in all the right places. And pink. I really do like pink. It’s the perfect size for my youngest who was turning four the next day so it came home and became one of her birthday gifts.
I’m happy with how much fun she’s having with it, and also with how it looks in her room at the foot of her bed.
The second item is this coral colored corner shelf which fits perfectly in the corner next to her closet. I’m trying to help my little girls with clutter – they take everything to their room! So far they’re loving the shelf and it hasn’t been overloaded with stuff.
There is still a lot for me to do in here since painting the walls gray. When it’s clean, I love the simplicity of what we have in there and I especially love this bed, from a yard sale in Denver (thanks again, Dad!).
There you have it: my two new finds. I actually bought a couple of other things as well, which I have big plans for.
It’s Labor Day weekend, which is kind of the last big hurrah for yard sales. Are you out finding something awesome? I hope you have a relaxing few days!
