Okay, so I have a confession to make... I am totally and completely an impulse buyer. I am one of those people who sees a SALE sign and my heart starts pumping a little faster. I have gotten smarter about how much I spend, when I am tempted to buy something, but I still have a bad habit of seeing a great deal and buying because it is a great deal..does that make sense? Well, I started thrift shopping again last year. I used to thrift shop all the time when I was in college, but stopped when I married my husband. Too busy with work and school and everything else.
And so years later, I have started again. Mostly after being inspired by the many creative women in the blogworld. It is so fun! It is so exciting! It's like a treasure hunt, and my blood starts pumping every time I walk inside a thrift store and find something that can be transformed into something amazing!
And now after too many visits and a garage filled with potentials, my husband is tired of the mess in his garage and I can't blame him. But of course yesterday, I couldn't resist a quick drop in to my favorite thrift store...and look what I found!
The good...Her bones!
The bad...the fabric is in shreds!
The good...the legs!
Okay, be kind, I know she needs a lot of work. But I can imagine her looking gorgeous, and all reupholstered. Now if you are like my husband you are shaking your head with disgust and pity for a crazy woman who just can't control herself. But if you are like me, she has potential right? And the sticker price, honey, was only $35. I am hoping to move her straight to the top of the project list instead of at the bottom at 999.
I am so lucky to be married to such a patient man! Love you honey!
