You guys! It’s garage sale season! Possibly one of my favorite times of the year. I love finding little treasures for my home, to reclaim, or to just resell and make a little profit. As a bonus my daughter loves estate sales, the thrift store, and garage sales.
My thrifting really got underway when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was working a really cushy corporate job but had a hard time justifying the full price of infant clothes that she would wear for a month at most. And then her first summer rolled around and it pained me to think about buying any outdoor items even though I still wanted her to have fun things to do outside. After a few seasons the outdoor things are always faded and ‘worn’. And living in the midwest, our changing seasons are HARD on outdoor toys.
Any way I picked up a picnic table for my daughter a few years back. It was faded yellow and orange. Other than the very weathered color the table was in great shape … but it was ugly. I wish I had a ‘before’ picture to share because it was bad, but I didn’t plan ahead.
After painting a free patio set my in-laws picked up for us last fall, I decided it was time to make this little set match.
