Great Estate Sale Find & Diningroom Makeover!!








Oh my gosh! I can hardly believe it has been more than a month since I have posted! The month of may has been just fabulous for estate/yard sales! The first I would like to show you is the wonderful vintage buffet I got a few weeks ago. Most bloggers start off talking about how they have redone a piece of furniture, a project, etc..Well, Every once in awhile you find that perfect piece that you do not have to do anything to! This is what happened to me....The yard sales were just alright, then decided to go in a different direction, and thank goodness I did! This wonderful buffet with the prettiest etched mirror was just sitting there looking pretty waiting for me to take it home! This is the part that you will not believe! I asked the seller how much, and she said 20.00! Then she proceeded to apologize, for having left some paint around the mirror! Was she kidding? I'll clean it up for the price she was asking! So here are some pictures of my diningroom. I had to rearrange just about everything, but I love how it turned out! I hope you enjoy the pictures! Remember you can click on the picture to enlarge. I would love to hear your favorite story of that perfect find! I am all ears! If you would like to send me an email  and/or a picture, please send to Rhinestonesandroses@yahoo.com ~~~~Happy Junking!

Can I move in??? Your dining room is so beautiful. I love all of the white painted furniture and your gorgeous colletions. What a great story about your new buffet. I would have been giddy and skipping for joy if I had found such a great piece for only $20 (that is after I picked myself up off the floor after having fainted first).

Hi Cheryl,I have been your fan for sometime now as I have had you marked as a favorite seller from ebay! I just now happened upon your blog. I am sure to become a follower for certain. I have had such fun going through your post but I must say the "Sun Porch" is my favorite. I love all your fun stuff in it and red is a favorite color of mine to decorate with!
I am so glad to have found you..please feel free to visit me,if you should so desire.

Blessings,Shelley
