So, I was on my way to take "L" to school Friday and noticed my neighbors were having a garage sale. "Oh, poor Penny. I loathe doing garage sales. I hope she has better luck than I do", I thought to myself. "Hey!" I mouthed and waved as I avoided the cars lining both sides of the street. Then I spotted it. I SLAMMED on my brakes, screeching tires and sippy cups flying to the dash. I quickly pulled over, jumped out of the van and ran up to my find. I have been searching for that certain something for the living room and I just couldn't find it (Hubby and I disagreed on what, if anything should go there. You can read all about it here) until now! There it was. My little treasure. The perfect little something. Wanna see?
Isn't it cute? I'm not sure whether to repaint it or not? I want it black anyway and I kind of like the beat up look. Maybe I'll just sand it a little more? I'm still trying to decide. I think the knobs are a little too contemporary so I'll probably end up changing them, even though Hubby likes them. Sorry Hubby! Apparently there used to be a mirror, so it must've been a dressing table. I need to decorate it but it's gotta wait until I decide for sure about the paint. Hmmm. Decisions! Decisions!
I know you're wondering how much I paid, right? You ready for this? $20. Sorry to disappoint all you good hagglers out there, but it was my neighbor. I just couldn't haggle. I'm not good at it. I'm, in fact, really bad at it. Just ask my Hubby! He'll tell you the story of our honeymoon in Mexico when he haggled down the sterling silver ring I wanted and I kept saying, "That's not enough! Give him some more money!" He vowed to never take me shopping in Mexico again! Anyway, obviously I need some haggler training! Oh well! At least I got my treasure.
