Thankful {Day 16}

Today I am thankful for scary dirty houses and crazy people who don't know what they are talking about.

You  are probably scratching your head right now saying "What are you talking about Roxanne and why are you thankful for that?!?!" Well it is because of this crazy person and nasty house with dirty panties on the floor that I am now the proud owner of a not so brand new dresser. She is so purty and she just so happens to be sitting out on our back porch waiting to be sanded and painted!

Waiting at the scary house. We were a bit early because  we were afraid we would get lost and no one was there because they were at their new house which I hope was taken better care of.

What we would have come home with. It had potential, but just wasn't what we were looking for. I want real wood people!!!!! Something sturdy that will last for years!

We got up this morning super duper early to go check out and pick up this dresser I found on Better Then Ebay Furniture (a local kind of Craigslist group on Facebook), but when we got there after driving 30 minutes house looked like someone had been murdered and left for dead. It was really scary and yucky and we got out of there pretty quickly. On our way home Brent and I decided to drive around to some yard sales since we were sans bebe and we had $50 burning a hole in his jeans pocket. Well wouldn't you know a street over there was a big bright green sign hanging on the trash can and as I was driving by I saw 3 big pieces of furniture on the top of the driveway !!!! We turned back around to check it out and it was exactly what I have been looking for.. 

All Wood-Check
A Little Bit Of Character-Check
$50- Check

The little girl in charge of of the sale originally had $85 for the dresser and mirror, but since we didn't need a mirror I asked her how much without it and she said $50!!!!! OH HAPPY DAY!!! So we loaded it up smashed a few of Brent's fingers and drove our new beauty home to get started.

We hit up home depot for some wood filler and later had to make another run for sand paper pads and it was on like Donkey Kong. Tomorrow I will finish sanding and then hopefully paint while little lady is napping.

We will also be shooting our Christmas card picture tomorrow so get ready for some Christmas magic coming your way soon!
