And let me tell you, we have found some STEALS! I recently bought a mirror to go above my entry table, that probably originally retailed for $600, for $25! $25 and I didn't even haggle! It is a HUGE amazing mirror too!
And then this past weekend I bought a Bassett furniture armoire for my tv 57"wide x76" tall, solid wood beauty that retails for about $2800 plus tax, for $200! Yup. Sale tax on the original purchase was more then I paid for this AMAZING beauty! I love it so much, I just sat and stared at it for like an hour the other day. Seriously.
Finding steals like that gives me a "high." Oh come on. Don't judge. You know what I mean! It is a great feeling to get a great deal on an amazing piece of furniture! Even my husband is hooked! He was feeling pretty amazing after the armoire purchase too! He even asked me what else we could buy off of craigslist. Hm. Sounds like a challenge to me to find my next steal!
So back to my Entry Table...
When I told my husband I was buying an entry table and going to refinish it, let me first say, he was completely supportive and on board with it. But he wanted to know what color I was going to paint it.
I told him I would wait and see. When I saw the table in person, I would know what color the table was "meant" to be.
Does that sound crazy? He thought so.
So I put it in boy terms for my hubby to understand. I explained to him how some cars look great in white, but others only look good in gray. Some cars just look great in one color, but not so hot in another. He understood this concept. So I went on to explain that furniture is the same way. Some pieces are just meant to be a certain color because they will look best in it. He thought I was slightly less crazy after this explaination.
So, I started out with this table that I purchased off of Craigslist:
I LOVE it! I love my little red table!
