I am an avid garage sale-er and thrift store go-er. I get a little rush from finding things others would consider "trash" and transforming them into something useful or pretty. The weekend before last there was a garage sale right across the street, and I couldn't help but go. I'm so glad I did. I got both of these pieces for $20 total.
The 1st piece is a small dresser that I'll be using to hold some of my clothes. The 2nd piece I picked up is a large nightstand, but I'll be using it in my living room to hold my TV. The second photo below shows the real color of this piece
Now I just need to figure out how I will change them to fit my apartment. Here are some different DIYs that I enjoyed looking at (click for link)
I could use words
Or ModPodge and paper
I could paint it a bold color (although maybe not green)
Or keep it neutral with an elegant design
I still don't know which direction I'll go with these two pieces, but when I finally decide I'll do an update and show the results. Any good ideas?
