Moving and Shaking Trash

Currently, this $40.00 garage sale buffet is listed on Craig's List for $80.00
But before I sell it, I pull these vintage fixtures off the buffet
spray paint 'em and sand 'em down
If it's alright to transfer one piece of trash for another, then that's what I'll do.
I really like my new $10.00 dresser, but it needs a little pazazz!
Kelly and I drooled shopped at Anthropology a few weeks ago and found some amazing knobs on clearance for $2.99.
Thanks to Kelly's advice, I try them both on the dresser.  
Thanks, Kelly.
My $1.00 frame
get's a little gold spray paint makeover.
And what does Little Sis do while I work on my projects?
She loves her $3.99 Baby Einstein toy from Goodwill.
To sell or not to sell, that is the question? 
I've become a bit attached to my $20.00 Goodwill antique folding table, but this is business.
Look at those legs!  Don't you just love the claw feet?  
Let's see if I can sell it for $95.00 on Craig's List.
My $20.00 8x11 garage sale rug needs a good cleaning.
The reason I was able to purchase this beauty for $20.00 was because the owner had spilled carpet shampoo on it and wasn't sure how to remove it.
I hang it on the pool fence and squirt it with a hose.
Squeaky clean and the carpet shampoo smells like strawberries.
The rug is now listed on Craig's List for $100.00
The boys keep themselves entertained in their Clone Wars Star Wars house I found for $5.00 at a garage sale.
And my $5.00 garage sale partition I used for Halloween decor?
It's now on Craig's List for $45.00.  
How's that for staging?
Another day of moving and shaking with trash.


  1. I Loooove what you did with the dresser. Can't wait to see what sells.

  2. I keep posting anonymous because I am a techno idiot. I do manage to sell pretty well on ebay though and I love reading through your blog. I've never sold anything on Craigslist but just came across the most incredible childs table and chair set at Uncle Sal's for $20. The stickers are still on it, the table alone went for $299. original. Any advice for posting on CL? Do you have a separate email account set up just for that? Do you have people contact you by email or by phone? Also, I do love people but I'm not letting strangers in my home, do you meet them outside? A nice post on CL advice would be awesome. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge.

  3. Absolutely adore the assortment of knobs on the dresser! Good luck on CL- I have been having a heck of a time moving anything lately...strange but true.
