When you are trying to sell a house and move you really shouldn't be finding or buying additional stuff. The whole idea is to purge and clean out for a fresh start, don't you think?
Sometimes it just can't be helped.
As hubby and I were once again heading to Menard's for something we needed to finish a project we drove by this group of furniture sitting out on the curb in this industrial park area.
Still there on our way back I picked up a chair and a bench. Passed on the round glass table.
These are metal and wood and fabric. The fabric needs help, but everything else is in good shape. I actually went back again and picked up the other 2 chairs (3 total) and will figure it out later. At least one will go to my son for his desk in his new room that we don't yet have.
I really liked the metal supports on this bench too. They are on the ends too.
This can be used in then entry or mudroom--once again I don't know where we are moving to, but I have visions anyway. It can be painted some fun color....or add a cushion....
And here is the downsize and staging of my LR. We moved out a cedar chest and a loveseat to the basement so that we can make it look more open.
The little table between the chairs is a sewing machine table that I found free on the curb in my neighborhood 3 yrs. ago. I had my son take out the machine just this week because it was SO heavy. And although the machine did work, I hadn't ever used it and decided to remove it (donated it to my thrift store). Then we tightened up the legs a bit and good to go.
The 2 wingback chairs I just picked up on Wednesday at one of the thrift stores that I frequent occasionally. Stopped there on a whim and found these for $12.99/ea. marked down from $27.99/ea. They were in better shape upholstery-wise than the other 2 I had in there and these matched each other, so even better. I had almost bought a different pair of wingbacks last week for $49.99/ea. Glad I didn't. They had dark floral upholstery. The lighter ones (they are kind of a green grey fabric) look nicer in this space.
I also picked up recently 2 different Pampered Chef stoneware pieces. A loaf pan (which I absolutely LOVE for making homemade bread) for $5 and a 9 x 13 pan for $10. Happy day!!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!!
