I thought I would share a few things that we picked up this weekend.
I love going to the Goodwill the day before their 50% off Saturday (not sure about your area, but they do this every two weeks here!). I am sure that everyone wants to wait until they can get everything at half the price by waiting so it is typically FULL of stuff.
I have also found that if you snooze, you just may lose! One time I saw the coolest sideboard/dresser there and was sure that no one would buy it, as it was, for the price it was, which I believe was only $25. It was literally covered in kids stickers! If I would have thought for one minute that someone would have actually paid full price for it, I certainly would have gone ahead and bought it right then. It is still a thorn in my side that I missed out on it!
Anyhoo, back to last Friday. As expected the store was full. I found this cute little table:
I get positively giddy when I find something that is actually real wood...and this table was! No major damage and the price was $14.99. That is a little more than I like to spend on items that I plan to refinish and possibly sell (I usually give my daughters "dibs", if it's not something I am going to use myself). I was not in the mood to come back the next day and fight other crazies for it!
The next piece I found on Craigslist. It is a king size headboard and since Melissa still did not have one for her newly acquired king size bed, I sent her the listing. She liked it so we went and picked it up.
Not bad for $20, right? Of course it needs a "facelift" and if the background looks familiar, you can probably see that it is sitting in MY garage, waiting for me to work some magic!
That's all I got for now! It's been a slow cookie time...I have not made any in weeks! Can you believe it?!
Till next time!
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
