All for Nothing

Friday, 26 November 2010

I had SUCH high hopes for these little beauties.

I shouldn't even tell you what I bought them for...but I have to b/c I love telling stories of how cheap I get stuff. Especially when they are THIS cheap. I stopped by a garage sale...it was the last day, and there they sat. On one edge, you could tell someone had taken several nibbles on the table...amazingly, the dog lived through it b/c he was at the sale greeting me. Anyway, the tag on one of them said "$15 for the pair". I thought that was pretty good, but asked the gal "Would you take less for these?". Before I even finished the sentence, she says "Yes...take them both for $5!!". I didn't hesitate and loaded them in the car. What she didn't know is that I would've taken them for $15....but you never know until you ask, right?

After a few coats of primer and white paint, a little glaze and shining up the hardware (isn't it FUN??) in white vinegar, here's how they turned out.

My hope was to put them in my bedroom to break up the matching dark furniture we have in there. Unfortunately, when I put them next to our bed, both the husband and I agreed they just don't work *tears*. So, Craigslist it is. What do you think I should sell them for? I think I sell things too cheap sometimes...so I'd love some feedback!
