{She Shoots. She Scoooores!}

I'm not really a garage saler.
Well, not since I furnished my very first place in 1996.
But our neighborhood was having a community garage sale
this weekend. So, Linds and I went out to see what we
could see. I was on the lookout for living room end tables
and maybe a lamp. No lamps, but I found a new coffee and
end table that totally work! Super excited.

Here's the BEFORE

And the after! I think the style really fits the rest of our
stuff. And the color is spot on! It matches our PB media
console and dining room furniture.

The table tops have a lot of texture, which I might not have
sought out, but I think it'll be good. It should stand up to
the abuse we will no doubt deliver.

And the table legs actually match the legs of
the dining room table really nicely.

Not bad for 70 bucks! We're totally enjoying it. And now...
I get to go lamp shopping! That room has been in need
of more lighting, but I didn't know where I'd put it. The
end table solves that problem, for sure.

Happy Sunday!

Look at you and your bargain finds! I would have never guessed you got those at a garage sale. They look great! And I can't believe how good they match your dinning room set. Amazing! These were totally calling our your name. They knew you needed them. :o) Congrats!
