7 things for $7: weekend garage sale finds

I finally snagged a coffee table that is a perfect candidate for a shabby chic paint makeover.....and a few other things.  All this for just $7! yay! I'm linking this post to Today's Thrifty Treasures HERE.

There were no chips in any of these pieces.  The tray I got to maybe paint but the etched design was so nice I just put it in one of my son's room.  The small frame is a shadow box with a key hole type hanger on top.   The pottery bowl looks hand made (by practiced hands) and it has fresh salsa in it right now.  I love it.  I doesn't match anything I have, but I love it.  The plate is hand painted and from Germany.  I have a few similar pieces, so it will fit right in.  The little pitcher is some sort of transferware piece, mostly brown.  It's very lovely and neutral looking with a barn on it.  It sits on the mantel now, had to tweek that again.  The bowl with lid is in perfect condition.  The pattern is familiar but I don't know much other than that. 

Shall we go black or off white?  It needs a little repair on the bottom support.  You can see my couch in the background is a beauty.  I AM on the lookout for a new one of those.  The table I got for $3 and the rest of the items were unmarked and when I took them to the owner he said $4!  I was pleased.

Yum, the salsa was good. 

Adding a nice touch to the mantle, still tweeking that.

The plate and covered dish landed in the bedroom, that makeover just seems to keep morphing...........

I love the transferware pitcher. I might have paid $4.00 for just that. I would go white on the coffee table. It will really make the detail on the wood pop out. Have a nice day.
