Garage Sale Find to Fabulous

Day 3 DIY project comes from a garage sale find. There is something about a great garage or yard sale that leaves me in a good mood the rest of the day.  Finding treasure amongst the bargains laid out on tables in some strangers driveway is a rare treat for me.  I went to this particular garage sale with my parents and ended up filling their vehicle with my finds.

Among my finds was a pair of white chairs that although nice and detailed lacked something.  I decided they lacked paint and after covering them with a cobalt blue coat (or two), I had a new pair of chairs for our deck that I love!

Chairs = $5

Paint = $9

Total = $14

Not to bad I say.

Have you ever found a great find at a garage or yard sale?  Did you use it as is or make it even better?
