Garage Sale Finds

Summer project number…. I lost track!

With our new peak in guests we wanted to make the rooms more welcoming and comfortable. One of these tasks included moving a TV into what we call the “Green Room.” We were reluctant to put another hole in our wall by hanging it (we learned the hard way with Tyson) so we set out in search for something to set it on.

Sleepyhead wouldn’t get up so I went and did an initial viewing and then picked her up a little later. Coffee and dogs in tow we found this shelf for $8.00, but I got it for $5.00. (The first rule of garage sale finds: Bargain!)

We wanted it to be the same cream/ivory color as the nightstand and neutralize the only un-neutral room in the house (notice the green walls). We started with one coat of primer and actually figured out that instead of buying ivory paint we could use our wall paint that the previous owners had left us. So three coats of cream and one coat of clear gloss varnish later and Voila! As a bonus I finally got my Nancy Drew books out of boxes. IMG_3476

On to the next project!
