I like to go to garage sales. Finding an arm full of stuff for $3 just makes my skirt fly up! This section of posts will include an item bought at a garage sale and turned into a prop. Maybe it will give people ideas when they happen by a sale in the neighborhood.
This one is pretty obvious. But the best part of it was, it cost me a bright shiny quarter. Find of the day for me!
I obviously forgot to take a picture of it right after I bought it. I will remember to do that from now on (err, what was I supposed to be remembering?) Anyways… in its “found in a yard sale” state, it was slightly bent, and solid brass or fake gold finish or something… Not pretty.
Bent it the best I could, and primer and 2 coats of flat black Kilz later, it looked like the picture above.
A bit of brown paint sponged on, and I had something that I could deal with.
Old Garage Sale Wall Sconce – 25 cents
Drop of brown paint size of a walnut – err, 25 cents?
Two Icky Finger candles that melted RED that the kids LOVED – Priceless.
(I know, the Master Card thing is SO overdone, but I couldn’t help myself!)
Happy Garage Sale Hunting!
