Money well spent
My friend Jeanne was having a garage/yard sale this weekend. I was trying to gather some items to sell as well but I never got my act together. I set up a table at her sale but quickly realized I had just a few small items to sell and I would rather be shopping the sale then standing behind my table. I made $1.25.
This garage is on her investment property. It has a tin roof. Jeanne's husband thinks it is a fire trap but Jeanne and I love it.
You have to admit, it is really cool. Jeanne and I have the same decorating style so I knew I would end up buying a lot at her sale.
When I spied this beauty in the garage I knew I wanted her. I wasn't thrilled with the hot pink velvet cushions or the black trim. It is dramatic but not my colors. The more I looked at her the more I began to talk myself out of it. I walked away. Then I came back and I sat on her. Very comfortable by the way. She also was the perfect size for my small rooms.
I looked at her from every angle. She was in good condition. I liked her contrasting fabric too.
Her son loaded her into the truck, drove her to my house and brought her in for me. Such service!
Now I'm thinking she may go in the office. Originally I was thinking the living room but now I think she would be better in the office. The office is a work in progress. It needs to be cleared out as it is currently a storage space in my basement. A heated, air conditioned storage space. What a waste of a room! I have procrastinated cleaning out the office for an entire year, shame on me!
I think the prospect of decorating the office has given me a reason to clean up the space. Stay tuned!
