Well last week actually, I went to a garage sale which was just down the road. It was a combination of garage sales that is held in a local hall, they like to do this once a year and for the last couple of years I really didn't find much, but this year was different!
I managed to pick up this gorgeous chest of drawers. I am thinking of putting these either in the lounge room or Lisa's bedroom. I had been wanting some drawers and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them and cost me all of $40. There is a bit of a story behind them though as when I asked the gentleman the price he told me to wait for his mum to arrive as they were hers. So I did. When she did finally arrive I asked again and the elderly lady said I could have them for $40, which I snapped up and paid for immediately. But whilst I was looking at other stuff there, the gentleman who sold me the drawers came up to me with this other woman (who was claiming she saw them first) and said that he had promised the drawers to her. Now I saw this woman come in and it was after me! That alone started to make my blood boil and I was already shaking my head like 'no way' are you getting these drawers. I told her I paid for them fair and square and besides the guy happily took my money and the deal was done! I did feel a little sorry for the woman for missing out on a bargain. Just a little...
I also purchased this mirror from the same guy and the little ornate bedside table which I just fell in love with, I'm thinking of leaving it just the way it is.
It is blue that has been distressed in some areas more than others so I might just "even it out" a little. It has a concave drawer in the front which I thought was cute, but I might add a little crystal knob as it has no handle. I am thinking of putting this in the lounge, and the other mirror in the family room.
These were all purchased from the same gentleman as he had a lot of furniture there and I would have probably kept looking if that silly woman didn't keep whinging about the drawers, so I just went home before it got ugly!! Well, atleast I HAD the drawers, yay! Have a great week end, Maryann
