First Garage Sale of the Season

I hope you all had a great weekend even with this crappy weather, I sure did! Friday night we had a bbq with our friends Leny & Vittoria. Saturday I hit up a great street sale, went to a wedding shower, saw Bridesmaids and had dinner at Terroni with Caitie & Torey. Yesterday I bought a fabulously overpriced dress and hung out with Michael... All in all, a great weekend! Ok, enough rambling, onto the important things, like finding great pieces for cheap!

As I mentioned, on Saturday I hit up a street sale and found some great pieces. I got an old sewing machine table (without the sewing machine) and 3 pictures frames for $7.50!! If that isn't a steal I don't know what is. Once I have a better idea of the furniture Michael and I are going to buy I'm going to sand the table and paint it. Is that hard?

Also, with the picture frames, I plan on taking out the current pictures in them and putting in my own pictures.

Check out the pieces and let me know your thoughts. What colour would you paint the table?

I can't wait to hear your feedback and ideas.

Enjoy the Party,

Nicole :)


  1. Definitely paint that table white... i LOVE white-painted wood furniture! OR depending on where it is in your house you could totally do something super funky with it and make it a focal point somewhere! AWESOME find! love the frames too :)

  2. I love that table Nicole! I love the legs! As Caitie said, painting is a must! I don't know what colours you're thinking for the house, but I think a black matte would be really nice with some gold hardware. And the frames are awesome too...I have almost the exact same ones with that button art that I did a while ago! Next time, let me know of any street sales in the area and I'll meet you there!

  3. I love the white and black ideas, thanks! Once I have a better grasp on my themes I may pose this question again.
    I will definitely keep you posted Shannon :)

  4. Amazing deal! Good one Bigiones! xo
