The other day, I went to look at tiles. Yes, I know, AGAIN. In fact, I headed back to one place where I saw a 12×12 Ming Green tile for $3.99 sq/ft, way cheaper than the $14 sq/ft over at Daltile. But unfortunately they were out of stock. Not just out of stock, they don’t know when they’ll be getting a new shipment. Boo hoo!! I guess I’ll just have to get it from another supplier where I found it at $6.95 sq/ft, still cheaper, but not as cheap as I know I could have gotten it for.
So, to distract myself from my disappointment, I went to a local Goodwill and Salvation Army. I really didn’t think I’d find much, but I scored at the Goodwill! Look at these great nightstands. Originally $14.99 each, I got them for $24.99 for the pair, including tax. They have great lines, solid wood construction, dovetail joints… basically well made. The tops have some water damage, but nothing a good sanding and paint job wont cure. I’ve been on the look out for nightstands for the master bedroom, checking out craigslist and the flash sale sales… nothing until these two beauties. I wanted closed storage and open shelves, so when I saw them, I knew they were just what I was looking for. I figure at this price, it makes up for the extra money I’ll have to spend on that ming green tile I’m after. I plan to completely refinish them once we’ve moved, but you and I will both have to wait for the “After” shot.
At the Salvation Army, I found a gorgeous pair of emerald green arm chairs. I posted a picture of them on instagram and Facebook. They were such a good deal at $55 for the pair, with upholstery in near perfect condition. Sadly, they just don’t fit in with what I have in mind for the house. Hope they find a good, loving home.
