I've been brave lately and I've been chronicling some of the steps I've been taking to make my house a home, from furniture redo's like my grey end table to simple space brighteners like my coffee corner. Not every step of turning a house into a home is major step, or a major expense. Sometimes it's just a simple addition. One of the things I crossed off my to-do list was the hanging of a mirror I scored at a garage sale for $5!
As many of you know I like to upcycle pieces of wood furniture when I can. And I'm going to share my dirty little secret with you all, I purposely drive around on Sundays every so often and look for discarded furniture to remake. Sunday is the day that my neighborhood can put anything they want out on the curb and it will get hauled off to the dump. I think of myself as a knight in shining armor to these poor furniture pieces that have not quite hit their expiration date yet. This became quite a bad habit before I moved into my most recent apartment, and before I knew it my garage looked like an episode of hoarders. But unlike a hoarder I know how to host an amazing garage sale, and anyways long story short this table was one of the pieces I kept.
