The kids, sweet husband and I
were out running errands on
Saturday and we passed a Goodwill.
So I ran in really quick to
see what they had....
Now anyone who shops at
Goodwill and has purchased furniture
is familiar with the yellow receipt
they give you once you pay
for the item....it's what
you need to pick up the piece
once you drive around back..right
Well....sweet husband is
very familiar with this slip of paper
So imagine his face when I walked
back to the truck with it proudly in hand
Let's just say his reaction wasn't
in keeping with his sweet husband status...
But can you blame the man I seem to have
a slight addiction to orphaned furniture
Anyways...I thought it was a nice bookcase
And it was only
That's a bargain I thought!
It's very sturdy and well made
it just needed to be cleaned up
my plan is to paint it..but
in the meantime I wanted to
try using the Old English scratch
cover for dark woods
Before I use it on another
piece I just found
(yes i've been holding out on you)
i'm just not ready to share it yet
it's beautiful...and probably
my favorite thing i've ever found
i'll share soon...I promise
Look at the pretty artichoke/pineapple/acorn
(whatever you choose to call them)
finials on top
I love it in the kitchen/dining area...now all my
serving pieces are close at hand
Next project up...the kitchen!
The new cabinets are in....
it's going to be a race to the finish!
Everything will need to be
done by Easter....YIKES
Can super husband do it??
