Garage Sale-ing

Its garage sale time. I love going to garage sales. So far, I found a golden heart locket and a purple dress for Claire, a spring jacket and some pants for Milena, and an awesome puzzle for me:

But the best find so far was a $20 headboard our neighbors were more than happy to see leave. I think because when they looked at it, they saw this:

But when I looked at it, I saw a new orbital sander in my future, and this:

Claire was more than excited to pick out the new hardware, and knew exactly what she wanted.

Unfortunately, I didn't look at the doors closely enough before drilling the holes. I didn't realize they fit into the grooves only one way, so the knobs are both on the right instead of one on the left and one on the right as I imagined. But otherwise, it looks exactly like I thought it would, after a little wood fill, some serious sanding, and a lot of paint.

I'm such a bad commenter, but I love your posts. They make me feel close to family.


And seriously, that Milena is a doll baby! I love her little videos.
