Yard Sale Treasures

Hi Everyone!  Hope your week has gotten off to a wonderful start and you had a very Happy Mother's Day.  I have been busy getting ready for the Magnolia Festival and have been  BUSY!!!  I have even had my husband helping me out this weekend.

I thought I would share my new found treasures.  I went to a fantastic yard sale during my lunch break the other day and then decided that I had to go back during break for more.   Candlesticks,  buckets, tables and suitcases just waiting for a touch of "Vintage Charm."  


The first items to be "Vintage Charmed" was the green table and the tall candlestick in the back.  I painted both of them white and then distressed it for a shabby chic look. 

The table received some extra attention. I used my one of my favorite graphics from The Graphics Fairy blog and enlarged it using Block Posters. Then using my new favorite technique... I printed it out on wax paper and then took a credit card and transfered it to the table top off center. Then lightly went over it again with some sand paper for a time worn look.  (You can find some great transfer techniques here from the Graphics Fairy. )

Linking up with Brag Monday at The Graphics Fairy and White Wednesday at Faded Charm.  Go take a look at all the wonderful projects.

Stay "Charmed",



  1. That is AMAZING! LOVE the way you transferred the image--so pretty!!! Fabulous creations! :)

  2. You did find some great stuff! I love what you did with the little table-too cute!


  3. These look fabulous. How do you print on wax goes through the printer without jamming? This looks so cool!
