What better way to jump in than with a trash to treasure.....
Last week while dropping off a bunch of stuff at my local Goodwill, I popped in and look what I found...the perfect cabinet (beautiful outdoor buffet in waiting).
even better was the price...$12.99. Originally marked for $16.99 - how could I afford not to buy it (my hubby hates that logic!)
It was in shabby condition but solid wood - why do kiddos love putting stickers on furniture?
Nothing a little elbow grease couldn't fix. I knew I wanted to try glazing this - so many of you are doing it and I really wanted to give it a try. I used Behr cool mist in flat exterior. The Minwax Old Oak.
I love it! Is it possible to be in love with a piece of furniture....well I am.
Just look at the storage....citronella candles, outdoor paper lights, dog toys, an extra blanket to get cozy on chilly evenings, and on and on. Can't decide if I want to glaze the inside.....should I or shouldn't I? What do you think?
It also gives us extra room for food and drinks during parties.
A few other thrifty treasures...
Vintagesque bottle - $3.99
Small metal urn - $1.99
