It was a perfect day to be outside and I was quite pleased with my progress. I only took breaks for lunch and dinner. After dinner, I was trying to talk myself into one more round of work before it got dark. I decided to give Craigslist a quick check before heading out. Hmm, I saw a listing for an old store display cabinet made from barn wood, only $20. I could hardly reach for the phone fast enough. Yes, it was still available and just a few blocks away. I said I'd be right over and told my husband we had to make a quick trip.
Yes, it was pretty darn cool. I offered $15, because you just have to ask, and the seller accepted. He said he also had a garden chair listed for $5. In my excitement to call about the cabinet, I must have missed that listing. It was totally cool as well. Can't you just picture it in a fun new fabric? Sounds like another project!
So, two great unexpected finds for just $20. Needless to say, I finished my yard work with renewed enthusiasm!
It just goes to show, you never know what the day might bring!
