Yesterday was one of those days that wasn’t a bad day, but was an annoying one. More of an overwhelmed day, a list of things to get done and not enough time, both at home and work. I had three bags of clothing and shoes to donate in the back of the car and I almost just drove past the Goodwill with the mindset that I’d drop it off later. But instead, I said just do it now.
Well, my annoying day turned into a great one! I donated my items and popped inside really quickly. I found the exact sized dresser we’ve been looking for in unfinished wood just waiting for a makeover. Best part, it was $30! About $100 – $150 less than the ones we’d been checking out on Craigslist!
And then as I was walking through I found the most darling wooden rocking chair that’s in perfect condition, just needs a seat cushion. It was only $6!
I went out back to have the crew help me load the dresser into my car and I spotted a great headboard that had just been donated. It was a full size and perfect for our guest bed. They weren’t willing to sell it since it had just been donated, but I sweet talked them so they tossed a sticker on it and sold it to me for $13.
So, in the end my kind of annoying day turned out to be pretty darn good. Can’t wait to get to work on these three pieces and start actually furnishing this house!
