A couple of weeks ago before going in to work on Friday, my hubby had told me about all the garage sales he had seen in our neighboring town. So I decided to go check out a few, and boy am I glad I did.
Look at this beauty. . . I had already made plans that princess was going to be getting one of these as her Christmas present this year, I had planned on buying it at Target for about $ 80 new and not yet put together. This one for $ 10 was built by a dad who had the pottery barn version’s ($ 399.00) dimensions. Their daughter had outgrown it. This one is perfect but a tad bit on the heavy side and I do notice there is no official bottom to it.
I am thinking the outside will be staying the green it currently is as it will match princess’ room and that part is in pretty good condition. The interior needs a date with a spray paint can. I will be getting to work on this soon, there is going to be a lot of embellishing going on with this piece before Christmas. If you have any pictures of your fixed up doll houses/book cases let me know where to visit for some inspiration. Needless to say I have enough projects to work on now for a while.
Same day I also found Princess some Barbie roller blades and matching knee and elbow pads, a new Barbie and a Barbie guitar, she is my Barbie girl.
At the same sale, I also bought this mini coat tree. I will end up spray painting it black for use by our back door for the kiddos this winter.
The final thing I would like to share with you are these beauties. Yes some work is necessary. I found them at a country garage sale during the summer for 50 cents!!
I plan on hanging them on either side of this window in our stair landing. What do you think if I hang them a little lower than the top of the window… I sort of want to bring the eye down. Now what color paint? I am thinking ivory as the yellow on the walls sometimes appear to brigh yellow vs. the muted color it is suppossed to be.
