Kindness on Her Tongue



Sideboard For the Dining Room


My dining room has probably been the most neglected room in the house. I don’t think I have  any before pictures because I hadn’t planned on changing as much as I actually did over the summer. One of the things that it really needed was some sort of sideboard. I didn’t have a specific piece in mind but I didn’t want to pay very much (less than $50) and I wanted it to have storage space. I went to visit my dear friend in Atlanta at the end of July and since I have had some success in the past at the Goodwill near her, I decided to check for a piece to serve as a sideboard. I found the perfect piece. It was originally marked $65, then was marked down to $50 and finally had a “last chance” tag for $38. Sold! Here are some befores:

That black thing on the left side of the pic is a mini-fridge as our fridge died today. We had to run out to Walmart and get the little one to keep some necessities until our big one is repaired. I was thrilled when I realized that it is still under extended warranty – woohoo! Oh and please ignore my unfinished burlap runner hanging too low on the left 🙂
