I hope you are all having a great week, we have been busy around the house and hubby has been busy cleaning our yard. I’m a bit nervous because this afternoon I have a dentist appointment and I always get scared going to the dentist. Wish me luck.
I’ve been meaning to post about the garage sale finds since last weekend but I had not been able to. Glad I took some time today to write all about it. Last Saturday morning after breakfast my mom called me to let me know about a garage sale that was going on just a street away from our house and about a solid wood dining set. We left the house right away to check it out.
Remember, I told you we were looking into changing our white dining table? Well, this one is in a better condition than our old one. The table and chairs are outdated but when I looked at them I knew we could repurpose them:
We removed the old, ugly fabric from the chairs and we are planning on sanding them very soon and spray paint them in white. After staring at them for a while, I’m not too sure I will keep them. I am thinking of pairing the dining table with modern chairs instead. I got these for almost nothing, so I don’t feel bad breaking up the set. Until I find the dining table of my dreams, this one will do:
While walking back home and happy with our purchase, we happened across another garage sale at the corner of our street and noticed a chair. We asked how much where they asking for and they told us “it’s not for sale“, they were using it for sitting during the garage sale. After some discussion though, the couple sold it to me for $5:
can you see from this picture how bad the chair looked? Awful. Right? There was glue on top of the chair. I knew we could get rid of it just by sanding it. This is a solid oak chair. There is a stamp underneath the chair “Henderson, St-Lambert, Quebec”. I googled this and found out it was a furniture company and might this chair might have been produced back in the 70’s. I believe it’s an old office chair but there was not much information on the web about this:
Hubby spent hours outside sanding the chair, it turned out great. I haven’t decided yet what do with it. Should I spray paint it in white? Should I keep it in the dining room area? I don’t know yet, but as soon as I do something I will let you know about it. What would you do with it? Please, I need some ideas
Remember, I told you I was going to give you an update on the state of my living room? Here is a tiny sneak peek. I wanted to take better pictures but unfortunately Nate had made a mess and I wanted to take a picture before it would get dark outside. I used black frames to create a small gallery wall and I’m loving this look. It’s not complete yet and I’m hoping on showing you better pictures later on. I chose to decorate my living room with the following colors: white, blue and black but I haven’t been able to complete this space yet.
Below, is a picture from an IKEA living room that inspired me, the colors they chose are very similar to the ones I decided to decorate with; white, blue and black. They also used grey for the sofas, which I really love and I’m now considering adding grey to our living room as well. What do you think about it? I really want a black and white rug, I just need to convince hubby about this!
I hope you will all have a great week and
thanks again for stopping by!
