Saturday's garage sale goodie.

We were actually headed to Bed Bath & Beyond, when I spied a garage sale sign. Because I was driving, guess which direction the car went? ;o)

And it was so worth it!

I sent hubby up to check her out first - he came back saying she was pretty banged up & had lots of nicks & scratches. From where I was sitting, I thought she looked pretty good, so I went to inspect her myself. Yes, she has some nicks & scratches but all in all, she's in super condition! The nice lady sitting there yelled to me "I've had that since I was a child." And because my mouth operates faster than my brain, I replied "oh, so it's older, then." Realizing what I had just blurted, I dropped my head & cracked up. Then I apologized. "I am so sorry. I did not mean that the way it sounded." LOL Thankfully she started laughing too & said "if you can't laugh at yourself..." Amen to that! :)

This will be my official first piece of furniture to refurbish! I have read lately that many people are now spray painting furniture (such as dressers). I like this little piece so much that I'm just not sure that's the route I want to go. So, I'll have to do some researching. On top of that, I'm not quite sure where I want to use her, so I need to decide that before I can even choose a color. Anyway, this is first on my list, then an old bench I bought from Pottery Barn years ago, then the Craig's List desk & now I have decided --get this --don't fall out of your chair -- I have decided to pad & upholster my king size headboard! I know I know! What? :)

Anyone want to guess at what I paid for this cute little table? Or might I just say - SCORE! Ü

*She was asking $15, but took $11! Cha ching! :)

That is an awesome find. I guess $15.

I'd say $25. And I think you should paint it white with silver handles to go in your new kitchen. ;)

Oh! It's beautiful! Are you going to paint it a bright colour or go the white shabby chic route?
