I think you all know that I love a good bargain. I especially love finding them at yard sales and thrift stores. The thrill of the hunt, great deals and a thorough use of one’s imagination is what keeps me going to them. You’ve all heard of the saying one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Well, it is true. It is truly incredible to see what a little elbow grease and some paint can do to transform a piece of “junk” into a beautiful treasure.
Krylon offers a variety of unique products and finishes to make transforming these rejected objects into treasures pretty simple. Krylon has a wide selection of paints and paint-related products from general-purpose paints to specialty products to rust-preventative paints and primers to help consumers “Make It Yours.”
This past summer, the Krylon team along with Amy Devers, the host and design expert on A&E’s Fix This Yard and Victory Garden’s edibleFEAST on PBS, embarked on the 690 mile journey, known as the World’s Longest Yard Sale (or 127 Yard Sale) traveling along Highway 127 and stopped at three different locations. They transformed 127 objects they found at yard sales in those locations. All items transformed were used at the first ever Pinterest Yard Sale!
All proceeds from this yard sale were and are used to benefit the non-profit organization, Charity Wings Arts and Crafts, which enables people of all ages to Gather, Give Back and Create while promoting hope and healing through art. What a beautiful cause. Don’t we all feel better and happier when we are creators of things whether it is a delicious dish, a painting or a card that will be used to bring someone happiness?
Come along and follow our Pinterest Yard Sale as they continue to raise money for Charity Wings Arts and Crafts Center. Can you believe how simple it is to transform some of these everyday objects into something unique and chic to put in our homes? I wish I had gotten my hands on this beautiful vintage telephone or this modern looking typewriter. So many good things I wish I had room for and so much inspiration for future projects, right?
