My Garage Sale Finds

"Look what I found on my Saturday garage saleing"
I've been recreating the colors in my home and this color green lamp is just what I needed.
The lamp was sitting on a table in the back of a ladies garage and my radar took me
right to it.... I was polite but I had to squeeze through several people, but "I got it"!!
I paid only $6.00 for it.... I'm not sure about the shade but that can be fixed  with embellishments, or a new one?

I also found this really nice "Frame for $2.00"
There is an empty spot on the wall above where the new lamp is going and the area requires a long narrow shape... was not sure what to put in the frame but look at this.....

The before, large size.
"Then I got out my trusty miter saw and cut the sides off, about 4"  to make it a smaller size"

Out came my favorite glue, strong "Liquid Nails"... glued the sides together and let set for about an hour.

"Now to give it a new coat of paint"

I think I'm going to use my artsey talents and put this wall hanging inside somehow.. glue it or something.. I need to play with it and see how it go's.

It's little green apples... originally used as a wall/door hanging.
Once I have it finished  I'll be back to show the  results..
I just love creating something new.
Wish me luck!

When I saw the first picture my eyes were drawn to the green lamp. I love it! The apples in the frame will be perfect. Can't wait to see them.

I can't wait for the yard sales to start here. They usually don't start until late April, early May though. I still have a while to wait.
