Happy New Week




I have been asked to have my Christmas Decor from last year published in an upcoming Magazine.   I was going through my Christmas decor from a year ago and it brought back such wonderful memories of our last Christmas in Junk Chic Cottage II.

I will let you know when this gets published.


In the meantime I am working on the Living Room Space and I got a treasure today that I am going to re love for the living room.  I cannot wait to show you how this wonderful piece comes out.

This is the original piece I was going to pick up today.  The lady had this pretty cabinet for sale.  $40.  I need a small armoire cabinet for the Living Room in the new house.   I thought that Terry and his handy tools might be able to make this piece work.  Maybe some chunky legs to bring it up a little bit.  The size was perfect for the space.  It looks bigger in the picture but in reality it was only 28 inches wide and 18 inches deep.



We drove down with every intention of getting this piece.  When we got there this lady had a treasure trove of beautiful pieces of furniture in her garage.  

Of course I just meandered into her garage for a little lookie do!

I spied this piece and she told me if I like this piece better I could have it for $50.  It was perfect and solid oak.  I almost could not get it in my car fast enough.

I thought is this women crazy this piece is beautiful and for $10 bucks more I do not have to do anything to it.  Well maybe sand it and decide to leave it wood or do a paint texture to it! Still nothing had to be added.  SCORE!



This sweet TV cabinet was a beauty and still small enough for the space.  I will have pictures soon of the transformation of this sweet piece.  Gotta love when you find a bargain like this.

Have a great new week.
Hugs,
Kris

  11. Way to go, Kris. Congrats on the upcoming feature! I bet that lady was just glad to remove the larger piece from her stash - those are always harder to haul around, even just inside your own storage. I thought you were going to say she sold the piece you went after. You lucked out!

  27. How funny - I just bought an older armoire yesterday. I want to cut it in half because it is too deep but I am scared of circular saws. I have become a whimp.

    You will get all kinds of good storage with this piece and it has pretty lines.

  32. Score indeed! Both pieces are really nice but for the extra $10 and nothing to do but possibly paint, I'd have gone for it too! It pays to snoop around! You never know what you might find! Hugs!

  46. I know we're all excited to see what this piece looks like in your new home and how you use it! The first cabinet is almost exactly like one we have in our sitting room except the front doors are flat. We bought it in a used office furniture warehouse, of all places. I use it now to store large baking pans, etc. that I don't have room for in the kitchen.
