Best Yard Sale Find 2016

Hello Everyone!

This week I am going to chat about one of the best yard sale finds that I have come across this summer so far. And to be honest, I haven’t had as much yard sale shopping time as I accent chairanticipated, however, I have found some great items!

Okay, so my favourite find of 2016 would have to be this round, woven, contemporary chair with mental legs. I absolutely adore this chair. I have used this chair in my house and in almost every staging project! The architecture and design of this chair go perfectly with my style.

Now, lets chat about how I got this chair and what type of state it was in when I received it. I purchased this chair from my neighbour, who was at the time just setting up for his yard sale that was scheduled for the next day. (Tip: If you see someone setting up for a yard sale and you see gdgdfgdg.PNGsomething you like, don’t wait until the next day, stop and grab it now. 9 times of out 10 the person setting up for the sale isn’t going to care and they will most likely give you a better price.) So, with that said, I saw this cool looking chair out of the corner of my eye and then proceeded to walk over to my neighbours to get a better look. When I got there, it looked a little rusty and dirty but I knew I needed it! I bought the chair for $10 and basically ran home and started working on it right away. First, I used some soap and water and gave this chair a much needed bath. Once that was done, I sanded down the mental legs, they were looking really rusty. I then used a flat black spray paint and painted the legs. Within 30 minutes this cool little chair was looking brand new. And not to mention, a few days later a friend sent me a photo of the same chair that she saw at an antique store that was priced at $100. Can you believe it? I got mine for $10!
