A Yard Sale find ~ Sweet Pink Vignette

Hello everyone! I'm sooo glad it is the weekend ~ I've had a busy week, and looking forward to a little relaxation.

Today I wanted to share with you a sweet Yard sale find that hubby and I found while doing a little yard sale-ing at a Townwide Sale we went to last Saturday ~ sorry, I forgot to take before pics of it......It was originally a blackish brown color, and it had some interesting teardrop (sorta?) prims on it...I wasn't quite feeling them, but knew I could do something more with it. Of course, I painted it white, then I added some vintage prisms that were on a couple of glass candleholders that I have (now I need to find others to put on them, lol)..There are also a few French cut crystal prisms on it too...I am sooo liking how it turned out.

The wiring on this was in really bad shape, so my husband removed it....eventually we will get it re-wired, but for now I think it's just fine hanging "as is" in our kitchen. You can see that it has the original Vintage glass beaded lightbulb cover.










Here is a photo of a sweet vignette I "threw" together today. I've done one similar to this, using a vintage wicker chair painted green, and did this one with my Goodwill chair painted soft pink. I think this one is my favorite :)




Have a great weekend everyone ~ Until next time sweet friends !

You always find the greatest things at garage sales! I want to move where you live and then try to beat you to the sales. LOL Also, you need to rent out your husband--he seems quite handy. That chandelier is just so pretty. What color is the soft pink? So pretty too!

What a find! LOVE IT and the vignette! SWEET!

I heard my home was in CRomantica but I have no clue what issue or what it looks like. How did you order your copy(s)???? I sooo want to see it and share.

I'm so glad to be HOME!
