I found this treasure at Savers for $15. Then I founds some pillows as well from Savers for about $7 which I covered with fabric for about $10. This was my first sanding project. I took off the paint by sanding, but next time I think I will use some paint removers. I think it’s safer cause you don’t have questionable paint particles floating around or getting on your skin. I decided to use an Espresso color for the stain and sealed it with polyurethane. I thought the color was a bit dark at first and was thinking of wiping it down with mineral spirits, but the color grew on me and I sealed it.
Read this blog Blissful and Domestic by Danielle. She some how lives off of $14,000 a year with her husband who is attending school and she has two children 6 and 8. She tries to make everything home made from house cleaners, clothing, and food to save money. Truly and inspiration. I am planning on taking a few tips from her. She started out by reading a book called Americas Cheapest Family Gets You Right on the Money. I have started to book and look forward to saving a bit of money and learning some more DIY tricks 🙂 Stay tuned.
