    yard sale find!

    I found these yesterday at a yard sale. I'm using the shelf to hold fat quarters and the little chest to store blocks that I am working on.
    I just love them. The chest was only $4!

    Great find. Did you have to paint them or was it meant to be? They look right at home.

    I found a QSnap floor frame at a thrift store last week for $7.99 so the deals are out there if you look.

    I repainted the chest, it was an ugly color from the 1970's. The shelf is how I bought it.

    I thought I was doing good when I found the QSnap at a garage sale for $10 ... still a bargain but your's is a better one. will still enjoy using it when doing hand quilting!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Wow! Great find! I think I'm jealous that YOU got to them first, but also that I don't have the room for them! They're perfect!
