I did find a couple of garage sale items that I don't have to do anything to. A filing box that will go under my desk with the files that I need often. This is wood and the openings have leather wrapped around them. Not bad for $2.00 and at the same sale I bought the next item.
I had a mirror over the sofa before but I love this painting. She had a price on it for $25.00 and the canvas is worth more than that but it was later in the afternoon and she had marked it down to 10 bucks. It would not be for everyone but for me it's great. You can't see in the photo but there is some little bits of red and the green looks so much more textured in person. I also purchased a lot of items that need work and some I have started on. Photos soon!!
In this photo you can see that I put a huge sheet that I bought at a garage sale a month ago on the sofa instead of the quilt. I guess I'll need to redecorate around my new art work.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful July 4th. I've been busy doing exactly what I wanted to do. For me that is the best.
