The hunt continues...

A new morning ritual... after coffee and "logging on" - I religiously go to "Craig's List"... I'm lovin' it!  I was on a "hunt" for a Welsh Cupboard... it had to be maple, good quality furniture, had to be a certain height (not too tall) - good for storage and reasonably priced.  For months I looked every day... when I finally found the one that would work.. I notified the owner, asked for specific size - went to see it, drove my sister's monster Suburban... AND came home with the perfect hutch (Welsh Cupboard) for all of $75.00!!!  My new search... matching armoire and chest of drawers for my son's room... and I know I'll find it, maybe not until September, but that's OK...the search is on and oh, so fun!!!

Score! Don't you love it. Good for the environment to recycle furniture.

Congrats. What a good feeling. My recent search was for a sideboard. I too had specific dim. & wood needs. Finally found it at a thrift store. Turned out that an old dresser met my criteria perfectly. And for only $25.00 . Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Good for us!!
