I didn't find a lot last week thrifting but I LOVE the two items I bought.
First this bowl that mentioned yesterday. I love white. I love polka dots. This bowl was just meant for me! $2.
At the same store I found this mid-century sideboard. For the last five years or so we have had a dresser masquerading as a sideboard in the dining room. It has worked very well but I have always been on the look out for a real sideboard. When I spotted this piece I knew it was the one! It had only been there a few days but luckily the manager was willing to negotiate on the price. I got it for $30.
I couldn't fit it in the van that day so we had to go back and pick it up on Saturday. When Michael saw it he said "I am not sure this was worth $30". It told him to trust me but seeing it again I was secretly wondering the same thing. It had some scratches on the sides, the legs were loose, it was really dirty and worst of all it had cup rings and cat foot prints (eww!) all over the top that I couldn't get off with normal cleaning. Michael tightened the legs. I cleaned the entire thing inside and out and polished it. Then Michael lightly sanded the top and put on a couple of coats of poly. Good as new and definitely worth $30!
The new sideboard is actually a little smaller than the dresser which works well because we now have more room to maneuver around the table.
Did you have luck at the thrift stores last week?
