But moving on....as we were unpacking boxes upon boxes of clothes, I mentioned to the hubby that I wish we knew where a good local thrift store was. In an ingenious move, he googled our area and found a goodwill nearby. Good thinking!!
So we headed over and I instantly saw this gem. It wasn't a dresser, but oh so cute.
But it wasn't what we were there for. Just a few inches away was the only dresser that they had. This time the price tag was a little more steep. Ok a lot...it said $60!!! At a Goodwill store?? And it looked like this.....
Just as Stephen and I were talking back and forth about the potential that the dresser had, an employee walked by and whispered something. "If you take it today, furniture is 70% off". Did he REALLY just say that?? So the $60 dresser would be 70% off? OOooooh and the $25 table??? OMG!
We tore off the price tags from both pieces of furniture and headed for the checkout. The $60 dresser was now around $15...and the small table was just under $7! So for around the original price for the small table...we got both items! I was on a savings high....lol.
Once getting the pieces home, we headed to Lowe's to get the supplies we need to refinish both of them. We decided that we'd like to paint the dresser black, and add hardware. And as for the table that we could sand it down and restain. (I was a little hesitant about staining. It was my first time. But OH SO EASY!! wow, who knew?...lol)
|Loved the stain from the beginning.|
