New Runner and Urn in Dining Room

There were tons of yard sales this past Sat. and I got some great deals. Two things I bought were this Waverly toile runner for $1 and this urn for $1. I think the urn looks Majolica-ish and I really like its shape and colors. I'll be showing y'all the rest of my loot in the days ahead. Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

$7 Yard Sale Dresser

I got this cute little antique dresser for $7 at a yard sale a few weeks ago. I put in in my bedroom at first and then decided to bring it in the kitchen so I could see and enjoy it more. The bottom part of the hutch that was in this spot is in my laundry room and the top is in the attic. I'm sure you'll be seeing it again some time in the future. My mom said she may want to use it for awhile. The dresser already had this aged green finish so I am leaving it like it is for now. I try to avoid painting if I can 'cause it is a pain! The mirror was gone so I bought this fall fabric today at HL and just hot glued the edges onto a piece of cardboard and stapled it to the back of the frame. I am planning to change out the fabric for Christmas and whenever I want. A very cheap and easy project which is what I love! I am trying to come up with some kind of arrangement over it and on the sides. Not sure if the bunny tray is staying or not. It may go somewhere else. Hope y'all are getting some fabulous fall weather like we are here. Have a great night and a terrific Tuesday!
