I needed storage space. So I went to my creative monster inside me. And then I went hunting through my favorite trunk shops. And Craigslist.
Craigslist find! Chest of Drawers - Dresser - and Mirror.
I needed this in our spare bedroom for storing all my linens - fabric - sewing supplies - and a few other items that have been giving me frustration. I was able to move a folding table and a plastic set of storage drawers down to the attic!
Trunk Shop find. 3-Drawer Chest. I was absolutely thrilled when I found this little diddy!
I was able to store towels and washcloths - toiletries - and a few other items. This enabled me to move another plastic set of storage drawers down to the attic. More importantly - it allowed me to rearrange the shelves beside the tub so I can store our canister vacuum and steam mop with ease.
Another Craigslist find! Queen-size Herculon Sleeper Sofa.
The story behind looking for this will come later.
It has to do with Carlie. It's her fault.
Anyway - ready for this?
- Bedroom dresser set - $75.00
- Bathroom 3-Drawer Chest - $20.00
- Queen-size Sleeper Sofa - $60.00
" Cha-Ching ! "
All the drawers for the bedroom and bathroom will look totally different - very soon. Plans are for using Chalk Paint to jazz things up!
One other little treat I decided to - finally - cave in to giving myself!
I found these at another Trunk Shop I like to visit. I wanted a mix 'n match set of my own to choose from. I'm still looking for a sugar and creamer set. But I got really lucky finding these!
- Sadler Teapot - $10.00 ( " I know! I know! " )
- Sadler Teacups w/Saucers ( set of 6 ) - $22.00
" Cha-Ching ! "
I have been wanting to get the hunt for all these items off my list for quite some time now. And I put my foot down and decided to get it done in time for a special weekend.
But that's for a posting to come later! " Shhhh.... "
