$10 Garage Sale Find


A couple weeks ago, I drove by a house who was having a yard sale and saw a huge black shelf! I saw it and new I had to have it!! I know a shelf like this new would cost me close to $100 bucks, so I new I had to buy it!

I got it for ten bucks and it was in such good condition that I didn't have to do anything with it! I just wiped it off really well and decorated it! I have wanted a quilt rack shelf for a while now and I am so happy I found it! We have so many beautiful quilts/afghans that have been made for us and they are just sitting in a box in our closet. So now I have something to show them off with! :)



I think I want to put something in those empty frames....but I'm not sure what! If you have any ideas let me know!

What a wonderful find! I love how you have it displayed as well. I just recently redecorated my mantel display and used 'birds' as a theme. One thing I did was to print a photo of a shore bird and place it into a frame. Perhaps, you could do something similar with your frames.

Lindsey, my loving wife, I love your blog face lift and I think it looks really nice. It is very professional looking. I want you to know how grateful I am that you work so hard to help others and how hard you work to make our house look nice. I love you so much!!!

It looks fantastic Lindsey. If you plan on displaying blankets consistently on that self, it might be neat to have different fabric designs and swatches in those frames. That's my two cents :)

Very nice!!

You should put different size/style white plates in the black picture frames, that would be a nice contrast! :)
