OMIGOSH! It has been so busy around here with packing and moving and having a garage sale. Today was day #1 of the garage sale and we made about $300. Not bad since we would have donated most of the stuff anyway. Plus, it feels soooo good to clean and purge. I love decluttering!
I have a little experiment, but first let me tell you the story behind this piece of furniture...
Two days ago I got up and went for a 12 mile run with a couple of friends. Three blocks from my house is where we all split up to go to our own houses. I kid you not, I split from them and a half a block later I trip on a crack in the sidewalk while running down a hill. It was the kind of trip that you don't even have time to try to recover from. I landed mostly on my right side and skidded on my elbow for two feet. Yeah, if you need my DNA, it's just up the hill. Look for the 2 foot brown line of skin and blood.
Anyway, I walk around in pain all day but still have to pack up the house and get ready for the garage sale. Sad. So what do I do to feel better? Craigslist. I found a coffee table that someone was giving away for FREE. I called and he told me to go get it.
It was almost dark when I was able to go and he had left it in front of his house by the mailbox. I took my poor body and pushed the super heavy table end-over-end to my car AND I found a way to lift it all by myself. What luck!
My experiment is that I painted it white (with the paint I already have) and I'm going to sell it at the garage sale tomorrow. Not really an experiment, huh? Well, you know what I mean. If I were going to keep this, I would do a cool stencil on the top or something, but I'm not keeping it. It would just be another thing to move.
