Yard Free

Last weekend, my sister-in-law told me about a "yard free," essentially where an older couple was cleaning out their house and having a giant giveaway.

I scooted on over and boy did I snag some fun stuff! It all was pretty old stuff--probably over 500 8-track tapes, but the price was right-FREE! I snuck away with an original Nintendo NES AND a Super Mario game and this too:
HA! It's a vintage hair dryer that looks like a gun...I know, I's kinda morbit, but it's gonna be a great conversation piece in Lori's shop!

I got this shelf that works great for extra space in our bathroom closet. Until then, I had a gaping unused spacee from the floor to about four and a half feet up because the closet is too narrow for a hamper.
I also got this old raggedy footstool. I got it in hopes that my Hubbs would quit putting his big ol' boots feet on the coffee table.

I grabbed up some batting, fabric and some paint from Walmart and went at it with the staple gun and got this:

WOOT! WOOT! I love how it turned out...maybe I'll take on my couches next.
