Until recently, I've never loved garage sales. I always thought they were just other people's junk. I felt kind of uncomfortable and wierd sifting through someone else's stuff while they watched me. This all changed when I discovered how fun it is to refinish furniture. Now, I am obsessed with garage sales. I am always on the hunt for a great find, for something that can be saved. I still hate to bargain on price.
Big K on the other hand has always loved garage sales. He is somewhat of a packrat, while I'm more of a minimalist, so garage sales are right up his alley. Ha Ha! As I've said before, he is amazing at bargaining on price too. He hit up a neighbor's sale the other day and came home with this chair:
The neighbor said it was over 100 years old. I kind of doubt that! She also wanted $50 for it. Big K got it for $20.
Is this a good deal? Would you have bought it? What color should I paint it?
I'm linking this to a fun party called, Would you buy it Wednesdays? Where people weigh in on other's finds. Go check it out!
