What to Do With Yard Sale Finds
Trinkets to treasure
Make the most of your buys with these tools and tips.
What to do with those prints you pick up at garage sales? Showcase them in Ikea Matted Ribba frames ($3 and up) to create a gorgeous impact.
Swap out those outdated pulls for a set of stylish Bazaar Aisles Knobs ($12) and give an old dresser an instant face-lift.
Turn an old chair or table into a statement piece with a shot of color.
Benjamin Moore Natura Semigloss Interior paint in Mexicali Turquoise ($50 per gallon). This modern hue is perfect for furniture makeovers—and the no-VOC formula means it's super-"green."
Use the Daisy Print Tool Kit by Wild and Wolf ($32)—with a hammer, slip-joint pliers, and a six-in-one screwdriver—when you’re back home sprucing up those flea market finds.
Place Hammocks and High Tea Organic Cotton Sachets ($20 for pair) inside old dresser drawers to replace musty smells with the rejuvenating scent of organic lavender or lemon verbena.
