I Brake for Yard Sales


Did any of you check out Lara Spencer's I Brake for Yard Sales show on HGTV on Friday night? I am obsessed with her! Holy cow that woman can turn a dumpster piece of trash into a high-price piece of art!


I can't wait to get my hands on her new book now, aptly named I Brake for Yard Sales.  It's sure to be chock full of ideas and tips and more delish eye candy from the show on Friday night. I'm so bummed I cant find ANY of the pics of her best friend Dana's house (she featured her house on the 1st show).  Till I can find some photos to share I figured I'll share with you my favorite Lara Spencer design porn here





She upholstered these chairs in shower curtains!?! Talk about kid (and husband) friendly!!!


Seriously, right?  I need my copy I Brake for Yard Sales to arrive like now so I can read all her tips and tricks from cover to cover!

So cool. I didn't see the show, so I'll have to check if it's on demand.

It's really encouraging to see someone thrifting when she has the resources to pay top dollar. Love that!

Sorry I missed the show. Lara is so talented and I am sure I can learn from her!

I am featuring Designer and Paper Artist Anita Rivera from Castle Crown and Cottages on my site! She is amazing!

I did see the show! I loved how they showed her hunting for the pieces for Dana's house with Dana and then re doing each room and piece . Really inspiring and it did all come together beautifully:) Well worth watching!!

Missed the show, but I totally want the book as well!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I know, right?! About two minutes into it I decided I had to DVR the show so I could rewind and pause - looking at all the rooms over and over again. I know, I'm weird. :) Can't wait for her book!
