I said goodbye to a wonderful table & chairs tonight, but was so happy to see them go to one of my new favorite clients. Hi Rebecca! It makes the parting easier if you love the person who is 'adopting' the piece, don't you think?
Onto the table. And, no, the stereo isn't finished yet. Sorry! My car battery died & it really put a wrench in my day. You know how people always say that things happen at the worst times? Because they almost always do? Well, I'll tell you... I could have been stranded at Costco, or at the Goodwill, with a dead battery. Instead, do you know where it died? In my driveway. And my dad was there. He jumped it for me, and followed me to the dealership to drop it off. And my kids, who were waiting for me in the carpool line at school? My mom walked over & picked them up. Easy peasy. By the time we got the kids home, the car was ready & my dad dropped us off to pick it up. I am so very grateful that I didn't have any children out & about with me when my battery died. So grateful that if the battery had to die, it did so the way that it did. Happiness!
Onto the table. This table is old. It needed a lot- and I mean a lot- of work. Here is the before...
Hopefully, I'll have a stereo cabinet for you tomorrow :) In the meantime, because I don't want anyone to miss it, here are the details about the giveaway going on NOW!
My friend Becky has a new blog called Kings Down Road & a new Etsy store (also called Kings Down Road), both celebrating her love of all things vintage. She has so generously offered to give the lucky winner $50 credit at her etsy store!! Thank you, Becky!
In addition, I'm adding something to the package... a $50 visa card. So, the lucky winner will get $50 in awesome vintage goodies AND $50 to play with (my mother-in-law calls it "mad money" and I love that).
What do you have to do to win? There are several ways to get yourself entered into the giveaway (sorry for the terrible grammar, Betsy B!)...
