Garage Sales

May 24, 2011

Doesn’t it just drive you crazy when you see blog posts all about finding some amazing piece of furniture at a garage sale or on Craigslist?? About 6 months ago we decided to start going to garage sales when I have a Saturday off (only about once a month, so sad!) to see if we could find amazing furniture or tools or whatever! Never ever did I find anything! It felt like such a waste of time, and can I just say people make horrible signs! If you want us to come buy your stuff you have to make good signs that actually direct people to your sale! Anyways, 2 weeks ago I finally hit the jackpot and found this little baby for $20 that just needed a little paint and love!

I am so bad at taking “before” pictures. I get so excited about starting a project that I forget to take any until after I have started. But you get the idea, it was a tired looking little old dresser. A few coats of primer and paint later and its so beautiful!

For years I have had this cute little cabinet behind my couch but now its getting sold and being replaced by my new favorite piece!

It finally paid off to get up early all those Saturday mornings and drive around town aimlessly!
