What’s the best part about a yard sale? Maybe it’s the rare glimpse we get at the lives of others, or the satisfaction of digging through goods we wouldn’t find at a department store. Then again, it could be the rare feeling that comes from spotting the potential for something stunning in a pile of bits and pieces someone else has discarded. Yeah, we think that’s it.
As you can see above, the Krylon® Crew took the idea of finding hidden treasures to heart with the 127 Yard Sale. Led by Amy Devers (a multi-hyphenate designer, carpenter, TV personality, and design blogger), these creative adventurers set out along Highway 127 for the world’s longest yard sale. They traveled 690 miles across 6 states, stopping along the way to snag objects they could revive with something as simple as a fresh coat of paint. Over the course of their journey, the group picked out 127 pieces and gave them new life with unique Krylon products and finishes.
But the fun didn’t end once the road trip was over. Instead, all 127 items were put up for sale in Pinterest’s first-ever online yard sale. In the spirit of giving, proceeds from these sales benefit Charity Wings Arts and Crafts Center, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire people of all ages to gather, give back, and create art.
Most of the finished products have already been snatched up, but there are still a few items up for grabs. And if you’re more of a do-it-yourself type of person, you can head here to check out the Krylon Crew’s projects and get tips for your own DIY endeavors.
