White Bedroom set for a special Birthday Girl
I'm often asked where I get my stuff.
Everyone assumes I just get it all from yard sales.
As all of YOU know. Yard sales are just a small part of gathering things to redo.
One of my spots is auctions.
You have to have a plan when you go to auctions. Live or online.
Set your limit and stick to it.
Which is not always easy, especially when you love something.
Two weeks ago I snagged this set at auction.
The set was in great shape and the bonus was that it was sold as a set. So often they are split up and you end up paying a ton more if you want each piece.
This set was sold right away and custom colour picked for a special little girl. Doesn't it scream little girl to you?
It was picked up on the weekend and I'm anxiously waiting to get pics of it in it's final home.
I didn't get a pic of the mirror all finished, but I'm sure you can use your imagination.
I switched out the knobs. Go back and check out the ones that were on there and please agree with me that they just would not have worked on it now.
I can't wait to see how it looks now all set up.
Thats the only really bad part of this business. Sometimes you just don't get those promised pics and a little piece of you is left hanging.
