a tale of change and a garage sale find


lets talk about the garage sale find first.....

yeah, it was a little more than i usually fork over at a garage sale but this kitchen stool was definitely worth the 20 bucks. it came to us a worn metallic tan, not my color, so with 3 bucks worth of Krylon she lives in a more vivid shade of turquoise to match the little folding chair behind it (youve seen this chair in other posts).
the change is.....
the book shelves moving into the dining nook so we can turn our third bedroom back into a bedroom. more to come on this transformation which will include a new paint job and some thrifted furniture.
before this week we had a long dresser against this wall which served as storage for paper towels and table linens and mostly junk. i had to clean all that out and find new homes for things we needed and trash what we didnt need. i think i like the book shelves.
