When Goodwill Lets You Down, Shop at Your Neighbor's!

A few weeks ago I had a bummer Goodwill experience. I have heard some people saying that our local store had gotten pricey and really picked through lately. Being a new DIY/crafter I had no frame of reference and needed to check it out for myself a little more. Well, I understand now! I didn't find much that I like, but then saw a really awesome french looking mirror and and a dresser. Each was priced at $85!! HUH??!! WHAT??!! I was shocked.

Well, lucky for me, these 2 beauties showed up at my door that very afternoon!

Aren't they great?? I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them.

How did they show up at your door, you ask? So, rewind a few weeks before that. I had been at my neighbor Melissa's house. I saw them in her basement and she mentioned that she was going to sell them at our neighborhood yard sale. I quickly told her that I would buy them. Score for both of us. It took me forever to actually get them from her, so she took matters into her own hands and had her hubby drop them by! (Insert embarrassed face!)

Now they sit in my basement waiting for inspiration to strike. I was going to tell you my plans, but then decided I will share that in another post. (Taking a page from blogger gurus who tell me not to make one post out of two posts!) Off to paint that table from the other day...or watch Nate Berkus.


  1. Pretty!! You HAVE to do a stencil of some harlequin or something like that. They are screaming stencil me! Do you hear them? ;-)

  2. Can't wait to see what you do with them!!!
