More Yard Sale Toile Goodness!

Two Toile Storage Ottomans - $8 for the pair

Our yard sale adventures brought us more toile goodness this weekend!  We found two black toile storage ottomans (only one pictured above) as we drove by a yard sale that was just closing up.  One of the ottomans is on casters; both are in serious need of a good cleaning!  With elbow grease, Oxi-Clean and our Bissell Little Green cleaner, I'm working on getting the toile clean.  For the bottoms, I'm planning on covering those in a solid black fabric.

Our other yard sale buys:

Wooden cafe sign - $2

Three nesting baskets - $2

Square, wooden candle plate - $2

Silver tray - $3

Various baskets and urn - FREE!

We picked the freebies up from the same lady we bought the ottomans from.  She had them sitting by the road, which is what prompted us to stop in the first place. 

The urn has a chip in the back, but I love the relief accents and its overall distressed look!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sharing this yard sale goodness with:

  7. Hi Mary Ellen, No way are you too tardy for the party! End tonight at midnight. Now those ottomons are awesome....I know how expensive they are to buy. I think I would have walked by them thinking they where not salvageable....I am curious to know how clean they turn out. Pretty tray too. Thanks for linking up to the party!!~

  8. Awesome deal on those ottomans...luv that PRETTY silver tray and the nesting baskets! Thanks for coming to my PARTY!


  9. I love, love, love the old cafe sign!! I would be in heaven if I ran across such an item at a garage sale. Guess I better get my comfy shoes out this week end and start scouting out some good ones!!!

  10. I love the ottomans! I have been given a directive by my husband that I cannot bring anymore furniture into the home until I get rid of something. Problem is our furniture is still new!! The house is full!

  11. Good buys! I think the ottomans are going to turn out great once you finish your clean up!

  12. What fun finds. I really love the cafe sign! I am hosting a giveaway and I'd love it if you stopped by!
