Thank Goodness for Yard Sales: My New Cane Chair

I went back and and forth about whether I would go to some yard sales this past weekend. Boy, am I glad I did! Look what I found:


I have some bright, beautiful plans for this little lady! She doesn’t have a name yet, but she had two sisters that I’m regretting leaving behind. They couldn’t all fit in my car, but I DID get the phone number of the lady hosting the yard sale. I think I’m going to call her up and see if they went unsold. As much as I try to tell myself we don’t have the space, I can already see that refinishing furniture is something I NEED to do. It’s just calling me!

      Dayka, my only issue is figuring out where to store them! The one I have is in a temporary spot in our master suite, but I have no space for the others. And we really don’t need the additional expense of a storage unit — but I’m definitely thinking about it 🙂
