In my last post I admitted I was addicted to discounts. But I have another confession: My name is Kelly and I’m addicted to garage sales. Phew! I’m so glad I got that off my chest. (As if it was really a secret.)
I have been lucking out lately and I’m so giddy about a recent find that I just had to share!
Here she is.Isn’t she a cutie?! And it was only $5! Whaaat?!
We have been in need of replacing the nightstands in the master bedroom ever since we painted and I stenciled an awesome accent wall. (Read about it here.) So I was very excited when I came across this piece.
It needed a good, deep cleaning (I think I used half a roll of paper towels), but then it was good as new again!
It’s a nice solid piece made of real wood and it already has that distressed look I love! I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not, but at least I don’t have to do anything more to it. Wahoo!I think the yellow goes well with the pillows on our bed and helps brighten up the room. Even though it doesn’t have drawers, I like the uniqueness of the tiered shelves.I even love the little crescent moon cutouts on the side. It truly is a “night” stand. Haha!Now we just have to find something for my husband’s side of the bed (and replace the lamps).We — and I mean he — may end up building a nightstand, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop looking around. The hunt is half the fun! Don’t you agree?!

The hunt is definitely half the fun! I’m not allowed to hunt until I make some more room though.
