Thrifted Treasure ~ December

Happy Monday, friends! I hope your weekend was amazing!!

Today for the thrift store challenge, I’m going to tell you a story…

There once was a girl who had always dreamed of having a beautiful home, full of unique treasures, so she thrifted and thrifted. She thrifted quite a lot!

One day she came across a coffee table that had seen better days.

She saw past the wear and tear that had happened over time, so she sanded and cleaned, painted and sealed, and made a she made beautiful thing.

She brought it in and loving placed it in her home. It was a little too big, so she sold it.

While on the Facebook marketplace, listing the coffee table to sell, she came across a dining table, which she “needed” because her current table was feeling a bit too big.

She began her work again, sanding and cleaning, painting and sealing.

It seemed to fit the space so nice, so she got on the marketplace to list her old table.

It sold in just a snap! But, of course, while on the marketplace, she came across another dining table that might fit the space even better!

She listed the table that she had just finished, it sold in just a snap!

Once again, she began her work, sanding and cleaning, painting and sealing.

To be continued…

That is the story of how in just one week, I bought and sold a few things. I am currently without a dining table or chairs, so I’m spending the day, out in my garage, working on my newest find. Hopefully it will be done before Christmas! I can’t wait to show y’all!

Now, let’s hop over to see what thrifted treasures my friends have found. Simply click on the pictures below…

I hope you enjoyed this fun little thrift store challenge!
