We had a community garage sale that we participated in. We had a few items we wanted to sell, but not really that much stuff. Coincidentally, an old friend of mine (Betsy) reached out to me to see if I wanted some of their older furniture to re-purpose. They’re moving in the near future and didn’t want to move stuff that they’re not using. So in their purging process, I gained some additional items to try to sell at the garage sale. I made the LOOOONNNGGGG journey to their house (jk, it wasn’t that far) and loaded up the truck with whatever I could bring with me. Jaya helped me load and Tosby supervised… After a slow drive back home, I made it in one piece!The furniture probably would have been fine just to bring straight to the Garage Sale as-is, but I thought I could get a little more out of it if I spurced it up a bit. More particularly the dresser. It wasn’t too big of a job. Just rip out the old-school liner: Take off the old-school knobsThen take it all apart and sand it down, piece by piece.
I had some bluish white paint leftover from a previous project, so I decided to paint it that color to freshen it up. After it all dried up, Sheena, Layla and I went to Lowes and picked up some new hardware to update it a bit.
Here’s the finished product: I was going to do an overhaul on the picnic table and chairs… but due to time constraints I simply sanded it down a bit and used some mineral water to clean it off.Its pretty nice. The chairs are comfy and the table is pretty sturdy too!
These items didn’t get sold at the garage sale. I think it’s because people were really shopping for smaller items. I noticed that other “vendors” really didn’t sell their larger items either. If you needed a truck to haul it away, it pretty much didn’t get purchased. If anyone is interested in this stuff, gimme a holla!
