My Sis Is Pretty Thrifty Too

My sister and I both enjoy shopping for good deals, especially thrifting, craigslisting and going to Estate sales.

She and her husband got a great deal on some really well made pieces back in the fall...

Don't you just love the curves, legs and hardware? Plus it was made incredibly well!
It did not match their other bedroom furniture so they debated whether to stain or paint the pieces... I said.. BOTH. That is exactly what they did... here is how they turned out.

I love them! It matched their bedroom perfectly. Their bed is stained and they have white side tables...

They decided to move their old dresser (also bought at a garage sale when my Sis was in college) to the living room to put their TV on...
I think it turned out perfectly! Don't you?

We both really enjoy buying someone elses "trash" and turn it into a "treasure".We have tossed around the idea of opening up a booth somewhere... I think it would be fun but I keep trying to weigh my options and the pro's and con's... any thoughts?
