I've had a pretty exciting couple of weeks as far as some great deals! My husband & I love going to thrift stores & tag sales. There is also a group on Facebook I belong to which is a local tag sale site that I have sold/bought things off of. There is nothing better than the thrill you get when you find a great deal! I hate spending a lot of money on household things when we have 5 kids, I mean why spend a lot when there is a chance of it getting ruined?!
My first find was our new buffet for our dining room which I did a post about here. The before & after is pretty good for my first time, not with painting but with staining.
This baby goes out to 9 feet long! Both the hubby & I have big families so this will be great for parties/holidays! Pretty nice huh?! Now I just need to find 8 chairs to go with it....
The other day my hubby was walking home from work, (he works down the street from our house) and one of the ladies in our neighborhood was having a tag sale. This is what he found:
This little crate was .25 but she just gave it too us. Isn't it so cute!?
And last but not least was this great piece of furniture for, ready? $10!!
I've already got it all sanded down. It's kind of rickety being that it's pretty old, so my FIL is going to bring me a couple clamps so I can glue it in a few loose spots before I stain it. This will be going in our kitchen and I'm thinking of getting some cute book ends to use with my cookbooks to store on the bottom shelf & I think the top will be our coffee station. What do you think? So, that is it, I'd say we did pretty darn good!
Have a great night!
