Results of My Weekend Junking

The weather here in Middle TN was pretty good this weekend. It was warm, but breezy and overcast. However, it was still good weather for getting out and about.

This is what I found on the side of the road. I had seen it laying there for a couple of days, but thought someone would get to it before I did. It was in a bad location, traffic wise, so I was hesitant. But, I finally decided to pull in one of the side streets, park and run around the fence that is between the sub-division and the off ramp at Rosa Parks Blvd., which is where it was. People must have thought I was NUTS! But I got it.

As you can see, one side of the table is not usable. But the other side is. It just so happens that this is one of those tables that you can open up to add an extension, so I just took the two sides apart, saved the good one and trashed the bad. I have plans. Also, the apron from the bad side survived. I'll have to figure out something for it as well.

On Friday night I went to a consignment sale where my daughter was working. It was the Encores and More North sale that I mentioned a few posts ago. Along with the great deal I got on a whole summer wardrobe for my son's daughter, I got this cool metal planter for $4.

I also found this old ironstone bowl at a nearby yard sale for $3. It was filthy and smelled of cigarette smoke, as did everything at that yard sale! A little Efferdent and water and it cleaned right up.
And last, but not least - the FREE twin size bed I got from a wonderful lady on My daughter is going to see if she can clean it up to use for her 3 year old daughter. If she doesn't use it, I will paint it up and use it myself.

What good deals did you find?
