From this...

to this,
to this,
to this, (round back chairs that I bought and then sold)
to this!
I really wanted a matching set of 6 chairs, but these were such a steal (costing me nothing) that I couldn't pass them up. I may just put a black bench on the other side of the table...eventually.
At the end of this little unplanned project, I came out ahead by $250 big ones.
I'm still giddy about it.
P.S. You better believe I found a killer deal on some bunk beds this week. Thanks to my sweet sisters-in-law Katie and Debbie. Without their help I wouldn't have beat out my competitors! Watching Debbie and I load and strap down/secure the trailor would have made our husband's proud.

oooh that is a nice little pile of cash! So I am not a good follower...was that just on selling 4 chairs?...or was a table sold there too? but either way that is a killer good money maker! I just sold a table and 4 chairs for only 50 bucks! I could have painted them white and called them Shabby Chic and made a little fortune...haha! I was just anxious to rid ourselves of all of our stuff that I went way low...I should have thought about it more?!...but then they would still be sitting in our storage unit...so just as well.

Anyway...go you! That is a fun hobby you got there! Keep making money!

Oh my gosh Amy the first picture is my dinning room set! Did you sell it? Because I hate mine. How much did you ask for it? Your new set is beautiful! Love it!

That's so awesome!!! It all looks great and is made even better by the fact that you did it yourself and made money during the process!

I like this table!!! How awesome for your adorable kitchen. I couldn't sleep last night for 2.5 hours because I was thinking about the decor projects on the list. It is a total obsession with me now and not in a healthy way. More in a "I DEMAND MORE MONEY" sort of a way and I have never said those words outloud but if I could be home decorating daily I would. I chose the wrong profession in school, I am certain.
