Have I told you recently how much I love garage sales? LOVE. Adore. I fantasize about them.
About us driving up to a garage sale at 6 am and finding a yard full of nice, well-priced, wood furniture in good condition but begging to be painted.
Oh wait, that happened.
Last fall I was afraid the furniture-painting part of my life was over. I wrote this woeful post about how things here in Arkansas were more difficult to come by and for sure harder to sell than in Austin.
Well I hope that has all changed.
Since the weather has finally gotten nice there have finally been garage sales in our area.
And a few weekends ago we did things up right.
Meaning, we woke up at 5:30 (I almost sprang out of bed I was so excited), made a ton of coffee, and headed out.
And the first home we stopped at we hit the jackpot.
Yes, that yard full of nice, well-priced, wood furniture in good condition but begging to be painted was real.
We snagged a pedestal table, portfolio mirror, small dresser, pair of vintage step end tables, and their matching coffee table.
And I was hooked again. We also bought two more coffee tables later that morning.
We headed up to Fayetteville to get chalk paint, and I got started!
I had forgotten how much I love to paint furniture.
I love that I have something else to distract me from painting our kitchen cabinets.
I love that this is a small way that I can contribute extra money to our debt snowball.
And even though waking up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning is really early, I love that the hubs and I get to garage sale together again- one of our favorite things!
