When a Goodwill opened in our community recently, I was thrilled. There are several close by, but this one was really-really close. However, I soon learned that the Goodwill in Dunwoody was *very* proud of it's furniture. The prices were outrageous.
Week after week, I'd go in & see the same pieces still sitting there. Some marked down, eventually, but a piece that would sell for $35 at another Goodwill would be marked $175 at this one. Truly, I'm not exaggerating.
I even spoke with the manager a few times (yes, I'm a dork like that). I told her that I'd love to buy from her store, but her prices were so ridiculous I wasn't even visiting that often.
Finally, months & months later, they got the message. And I'm thrilled to say that I'm now a happy supporter of our local Goodwill!
They had these two pieces last time I went in (wait till I show you the solid oak, super-duper claw foot round table I got there, too!)…
After my chalk paint obsession lately, I went old-school on this one. I primed & painted in color matched Heirloom White.
And it came out great.
Sometimes it's fun to go back to the basics!
