|The bottom of the chair-the cushion supported by a re-purposed stool|
The only way to get it in her room was to take apart the door frame. Instead, I will sell it. But, I’ll never re-coop the time that was invested in painting it.
Thanks to a rainy day estate sale two Saturday’s ago and a watchful friend who saw this potential beauty, I nabbed this 3-piece vanity set with a matching full-size bed frame for $20.
|Check out the hardware! Can you say “square”|
This furniture piece was in such terrible shape, it ended up being super easy to sand down and paint. Plus, there were no curvy edges or decorative adornments that makes painting jobs more time consuming.
Total Cost of Supplies for this project: $1…maybe, probably less.
New Hardware: Had a super cool set of 6 from a bucket of hardware I found at a yard sale
Paint: Used my staple antique white paint
Fabric for Bench: Found some cute fabric I already had in my stash
Total Time: Less than 4 hours for both pieces
|The Finished Product-For sale $195 both or $165 vanity, $55 headboard|
It turns out that Valentine’s gifts found on craigslist are not cool!
I say that only because February sales were less than stellar. Remember my amazing week in January when I sold 14 items in a single week. I didn’t even sell 14 items total this entire month. That just leaves more for March!
