A new endeaver perhaps?

Before I get to the meaning of the post title, I would like to say I am sorry for being a blog slacker this week. We are all trying to get used to the new school schedule. Also, we have had a ton of play dates. We have been busy busy busy! Good stuff! I need to catch up on my family blog too.

On to the new opportunity. So remember when I painted the cute little turquoise chest and I joked that I might sell it on craigslist?? Well, I decided to post it on there for fun. Guess what? It sold! In like a couple days AND I quadrupled my money. How exciting! I was a little sad to see her leave, but the lady who bought it was super impressed and loved it. Which made it easier to let go, not to mention the money. So the first thing I did with the money you ask? I bought two more pieces of furniture. One on craigslist for a whole $20 and one at goodwill for $8.99.  Stay tuned for their transformations:

Don't mind all the saw dust in the garage. Still working on our guest bathroom. I will reveal our new beadboard project early next week for sure! Stick around to see what I do with these tables too. There will be lots of sanding and painting going on ;)

Why is your goodwill so much better than mine? I can't find a table for under $25. Lame! & you know me, if it's used, it better be butt cheap. I am sad to know the turquoise chest sold :( but I'm glad that you got more $$ to do more projects (what else, right?!). Can't wait to see what you do to these tables. The square one looks like it could double as a wine rack haha! Have fun!
