$5 Bed in a Bag

I bought a big box of "fabric" at the auction last Saturday.   I really didn't dig into the box before I bid on it, so I was very surprised when I got it home and took everything out of the box.  At the auction,  I could see a pair of pillow shams and a matching throw pillow on top,  so I bid on the box and got it for $5.

There was a full size comforter,  two pillow shams,  and a  throw pillow,    The sheer fabric on the left is the drapery lining....the middle fabric is the reversed fabric....and the fabric on the right is the "main" fabric.   The valance on the drapes is fringed as is the pillow.
There is a full size dust ruffle.....
and four fully lined drapery panels that are 46 X 72" long!

 I can't wait to put these treasures to good use!
I have been cleaning all the counter tops in the kitchen this morning and I made a few changes that I thought I would show you.....since we're in the kitchen already looking at my new bed in a bag.....lol!
  I am changing the theme in the formal dining room from Roosters and Roses to something else.   So,  I decided to move the roosters into the kitchen rather than pack them away.
I cleaned and freshened up the counter top you can see behind that big mound of fabric....
Sweet little ceramic pig.

My bed in a bag....$5!
We are painting the "old" potting shed this week, it really needed it as it has been 7 years since the exterior has been painted.  The interior had never been painted,  so it will be quite a transformation!     When we built the greenhouse,  all the potting stuff moved to it, so now the "old" potting shed can be repurposed.   I can't wait to show you the transformation later this week or maybe even next week....it's a big project!

  1. I love an auction and haven't been to one in a while. This is the kind of deal I like to find! At the local auction, they call me "$5 Bonnie" and at the Flea Market they call my booth, "The Walmart booth," because I buy low and sell low.

  14. Beautiful fabric, what a steal for 5 bucks. Wish I could find stuff like that. I am sure I have missed some good opportunities by not having the imagination at the time. Then later I think what I could have done with that.............great job
