Estate Finds

Barstool Find

They cleaned up well.  And tightened the screws

They say patience is a virtue…. and in this case it sure was. I’ve been looking for barstools but the ones I found in the stores were so expensive. So.. that’s when my friend “patience” kicked in. I stumbled across another estate sale and found these great barstools. Got so excited over finding them and the price was perfect – $25.00 – They had to come home with me. Cleaned them up and they were perfect

So here it is a friday afternoon and I’m headed back to work from lunch when all of sudden – my eyes catch a yard sale.. Hmmm..  I  look at the time and shrug my shoulders – Oh well- a girl’s gotta do – what a girl’s gotta do .. so naturally I made a beeline straight to it.. and boy am I glad I stopped – this came home with me for $10.00
