My Dream French Farm Table!
Hope you are having a fab Sunday!!
Got up early Saturday morning to go to garage sales with my daughter Amanda!
She has got the garage sale bug as do I.
It was one of those really good days, where there was more good stuff than bad. A lot less exercise equipment, and more cool stuff!
We found a lot of great little items along the way. Amanda picked up a beautiful park bench for her backyard for only $10. I got an old bottle carrier, old books, crystal and silver candy dish all for $6.50. Then we came across this great buffet/sofa table. It matches some of my other pieces, and it was only $40. I called my husband and he whined a tiny bit, but he came an picked it up for me. Amanda's car was already loaded with stuff plus a car seat.
A few more sales, more fun stuff, then the mother lode!!
This great French farm table of my dreams. I have been wanting one for a really long time. It had to be the right one at the right price of course. Amanda said I had better get it, so we walked around to the other side of the table to see the price. I was thinking it was going to be an outrageous price for such a cool table. Not really, it was only $150!! Yay!! Now the thing is pretty huge, and other people were looking it at, but Amanda said you are getting it, and she stood guard while again I called my husband to the rescue. He was really great about it. I told him it was just what I had been wanting. Luckily the top came off so it was a bit easier to fit into our SUV. It was an interesting ride home. Had to leave the back open a bit because the table stuck out of the back. Our warning the door is open bell beeped all the way home. Needless to say it was a long 10 minute ride.
The table I had is a white chippy one with 2 leaves. It now belongs to Amanda. See we trade around a lot. She had a smaller white table which will now go to Craigslist. The sofa table I had before was an old window made into a table which is now on Craigslist.
It was a fun weekend, and big news baby Jake is officially crawling.
Please stay tuned for a giveaway and some other fun!
OK, enough rambling!!
Have a great week!
