So we are hoping to give the kids their own rooms by the end of the year. Since they now have 1 drawer each in an armories that Don built when Josh was born I am thinking that they might need new dressers. On Friday I went to a garage sale across from our house and saw this cute little white nightstand. I didn't buy it, because I wanted to talk to Don.
I woke-up at 7am with kids on Saturday and decided maybe I should check out the garage sales online. There was a garage sale not too far away that was a 30 family group effort. I thought surely there would be some furniture there. I feed the kids, plugged them into Saturday morning cartoons kissed a sleepy husband good-bye and off to the garage sell I went.
When I got there I saw these dressers and frame for a mirror.
I'm not a garage saler, but all of it was Broyhill and marked for $40 for the group. I thought cool, I'll offer them $30. There was another lady looking at them and talking on a cell phone. She was asking the person if she should offer on them and see if they would hold them to later. On a high thinking I would loose them I found the closest home owner and offered the full $40 and asked if I could pick them up a little later. Okay so that was a little ruthless, but isn't that the law of the garage sale? The good thing is Don liked them as well.
On the way home I stopped at the garage from the day before and the little night stand was still there. I offered them $10. This one need new paint and also some pulls, but I love the lines and all the drawers still work. Yeah, both of the kids are going to have furniture. Now let's see if I can talk Don into painting one of them white for Holly's room.
