Thrifty Thursday: My disorder, part deux

So people?  

At that very same church rummage sale I bought some other stuff.  

Remember the green-framed mirror?  I forgot to load it into my car on Friday afternoon.  And by the time I realized that I had forgotten it, they were closed.  So of course I had to go back FIRST THING in the morning to make sure they didn't sell my precious mirror to anyone else.  What I did not realize is that Saturday was HALF PRICE DAY!  So, of course I had to  buy two more mirrors.  And those suckers were big and heavy, so I had to go home, get the hubby's truck and go back to pick them up.  Well, of course, as long as I had the truck with me - and little tables were selling for like $2 - I had to buy 3 little tables.  I swear, I was standing in the back of the truck muttering "my husband's going to kill me."  Pretty sure those church rummage sale people think I'm a little crazy.  But!  Look what I got:




 {husband was disappointed that the top of this table was not real leather.  doesn't he understand that one cannot PAINT leather?  duh!}








{great legs}

I've already started painting and will be selling a couple of these sweet finds at - you guessed it - my office craft fair.  Yippee!

The grand total for this truckload of goodies?  About 15 bucks!

So what fantastic finds have you found lately?

WOW!! What great finds!! I definitely think I have the same disorder!! I have 2 nightstands I purchased from yard sale for $15! But they are sitting in the garage, since I have a load of other projects I have to finish! Happy painting!
