GaraGE saLEN Party #7

First off let me say THank you all for another great party last week.  I don't care what anyone says....I hang with the coolest chics in town! And that is all of you. You gals are so courteous and caring to one another each and every party.  I see your comments to each other, and you just make me smile. I think I throw a darn good guests mingle and have fun. Of course the host is not too bad herself (Patting myself on the back, and coughing)  Of course I have cool friends in my reality life...but none of them thrift...can you believe that? Oh well they are missing out! I had so many favorites this week.
Let me start with Gina....I believe she is new to this thrifting gig...but I do believe she is onto something.  Check out this beautiful dresser score
Next young, fresh, and energizing friend Allison.....her and her husband are also newbies to this, and having a ball....look what she found last week, and then look what they did a couple of days later.....I am impressed...they are so cute too!!~
AFTER: can you believe this? I just love it!

Now for my last feature of the week. My friend Leann!~ This gal rocks in her cool vintage, sassy style. She is fun, and uses great color in her home...very different from anything I am used to seeing....and I love different!~
See what I mean...she is a cool cat, go check out her blog, you will be happy you did!
Now let's get this partay started once again. 
I almost forgot about posting my latest score:

This table was hideous! But for 5.00 and a little creative thought...I came up with something useful. I am over the Modge podge for now...I think I have mastered it, and have to go onto something else. The top of this table was so beat up, and who in their right mind painted this? I mean I love fun and funk, but this is down right FUGS!
Cute little butterfly for 50 cents....I left her natural for now.

Just a little more color....I bought this as well at the thrift store for 1.00.

That's all let's get this party started! I can't wait to see what you have all scored this week! Oh I spent a whopping $6.50on my finds this that is what a call thrifting!
Linking up to a few parties
Joining HOLLY over at for her tickled pink party! NO it does not have to be pink!

I would love for you to add my link to your blog, and or my button that you have been featured.

Not to be redundant...but I seem to have to remind some of my participants to add my link to the party. I have NOT deleted any YET...but I am going to start cracking on my partay please be kind, and considerate to the rules.  ENJOY!!~IF you notice your entry is gone, it is because you did NOT link back to me.

Debbie, I love that little table that you refurbished. That before was kind of wild wasn't it. Love the tray you painted, too. My computer has been down all morning and so glad to get it back.

I picked up a corner table this week for a buck and an American candle lamp. I'm going to be painting this table blue and putting my American stuff on it. I'll be sure to post about this. I'm starting to get creative haha. Love the table.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR FEATURING ME!!! :) You've made my day!

That table totally reminds me of a shelf unit I am working on right now! It was almost the same colors! lol Love what you did to it.

I have nothing to add this week, unless I finish my shelf- which is ALMOST done so maybe I'll get off to go finish it just so I can post it! lol Thanks again!

That table must have been used as a display table in a store somewhere. Love all your colorful chickens poppin up everywhere...haha! You did a nice job with changing the table and the tray. I'm really impressed about the total of your purchases though. Good deal!

I am loving those shutters...unfortunately, I have the sort of husband that believes they should be on the outside of the house...not inside. Ugh.

Your table turned out so cute and colorful! What were the previous owners thinking?

Hi Debbie!

Oh that table had some serious, um...graphic designs happening! yeah, "graphic designs" that is a good way to put it! Love what you did to it! It looks great.

Okay, now I have to search through my stash of wicker baskets/trays and find one to spray paint red! That pop of red looks wonderful!!

I'll have you know, you have inspired me to "step out of my color comfort zone" and play with some bright fun colors! Yup, I am painting a candlestick bright yellow right now. And I thought of you while I did it! LOL

I'll be linking up probably tomorrow!

Have a great day!

Fun stuff! clever ideas. I need a week off work so I can get creative for my own use. I always do somnething creative in each home I work with yet with my own I tend to think it, and not do it. kinda like a mechanics car is always due for that oil change or the cabinet makers home is all unfinished. Is it being to busy and no spare time to devote enough or is it just because ya do it all week and ya burn out? I am not sure. Maybe both. All I know is with this new place here i could have a feild day getting creative if I had you here to inspire me and kick me in gear!!

OK hold onto your hat! Are you trying to tell me miss color queen, funky retro, Debbie Doo did not like the bright green, funky squared table! I swear Debbie if you had found it without the squares, I think you would have painted them on....You alway's keep us guessing!

Hi Debbie,
Well, your party is off to another great start! And you are just too funny! I bet if you took an informal poll of garage sales across the US & Canada, they would report a steep spike in sales since you began your Partay! :) Love your painted rooster! And are those blue painted wood chips I see?!

unreal of what some people find.....and then when prices are named i am floored.....GW here in my neck of the woods in pa is not even close to being thrifty any more.......and Craigslist people must think there used items are gold!! now i will say after watch C-List for least a yr i did hit the jackpot a wicker rocker that has NOTHING wrong with it for 5 bucks..oh don't get me wrong i am glad you ladies have such luck but i am tired of wearing this bib from drooling!!

Are things from Big Lots ok to share or is that considered retail?

Hi Debbie, I am late getting to the party but I just got home from yard salen and couldn't wait to show my new found treasure. Your table is so cute and I love the bright colors you used...they are so happy. But don't hate me when I say I liked it "as found" too. That green geometric print is pretty cool I think. My son's apartment is all black and white and that would have really added a punch of color. :) Hope you can slip by for a quick visit. xo Lynn

I am glad that I have thrifting friends, as much of this summer I am without my own vehicle. Sadly, they all have small cars, and we seem to like the same things. Makes thrifting together tough.

Interesting basket tray. It would be something I would have passed by. You make it look beautiful.

OMGosh Debbie...that table is so cute. As usual....I have modpodge but have never used it. What is my problem. I keep buying items thinking I will paint them but I haven't had the nerve to actually alter something yet. EEK.

Love that wicker tray you sprayed orange. I passed on so much wicker this weekend and now I wish I hadn't.
