WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

My friend was having a garage sale this past weekend, and on her Facebook page, she posted a couple of pictures of the furniture items she was selling.

As soon as I saw the picture of the armoire, I knew I wanted it!

I asked her how much she was selling it for, and she said $75, but she told me she'd sell it to me for $50!! She told me to hurry up and decide because people were swarming around it!

Normally I would ask my husband about it first, but I knew we needed that piece, and I know I would not find something like that for that price. Plus, I know the people, and I knew that it was going to be in good condition!

It only has the primer on it, so now I have to decide what color to paint it.

And those are not stains on the door. You can just see the "knots" through the primer.

I'm contemplating whether or not to use it in the homeschool room for their supplies, or in our bedroom.

So, it's in the garage till I decide the best place to put it!

So glad you scored. Your hubs must have been ok with your find!! You know, we have had a $50 dollar rule in our house for the whole 12 years of our marriage. If it costs $50 and under we can buy it w/o consult. After that no can do!

I think that's a steal! The drawers would be great for big pieces of art paper... just saying. :)

$50 is a great bargain for it. It looks like the top shelve is big enough for a TV or is it just the picture that makes it look big?

That's a great buy and it will go anywhere too! I have a similar one in the family room.
The drs. don't know what happened to my daughter's eye. It was one of those "freak accidents" that has no logical cause. Of course, those kinds of things seem to happen a lot in our family. We are weird.

I can never find such great pieces at garage sales. Now I know why! You mean I have to pre-shop on Facebook? LOL

I have missed blog hopping and am happy to finally be back and see your beautiful face! Hope all is well!

Melissa said...

great find!! I would do it white, or black, depending on the space you're using it in. :) One day I'll have to post pictures of all my furniture re-furbs that I've done in my house over the last few months. :)
