Treasure!

I am a craigslist Addict. Everyday I go on and check the furniture section to find new treasure. i have been looking for a dining table for a while, I didn't want you regular set that everyone has. I wanted one that had a story and I could fix up and make my own.

Well, yesterday I found my match. The dining set is 100 years old! The lady I "adopted" it from told me it had been passed down in her family. it was pretty worn and looked 100 years old. Perfect! So for practically free I got exactly what I wanted. I woke up early this morning sanded it, stained it and re-upholstered it. I am pretty proud of how it turned out!

(Oh and the other picture is of a mirror I got for $20..It was originally $100.00!!!)
