$5

I bought this from a local thrift store and G lifted it in and out of the car for me and set it up.  My new end table has no scratches, dents or bad smells.  The doors work perfectly. Yay!  It doesn't quite match the other wooden furniture stain-wise, and it's probably from the late 1970's, and D says that stuff like this winds up in thrift stores because their previous owners got old and died, but that's all ok.  I am going to keep some homeschool materials in there and D says... this stuff is taking over the house.  How is it that now that we are homeschooling only one child, that we have twice as much stuff?  I dunno.

  1. Who cares how it ended up there? All that matters is it was destined to bless you with storage space.

    I love a good find!

  3. A $5 end table that actually stores stuff, too? That's awesome. Of course in my house the 2 year old would use it to literally climb the walls. ;0)

  4. Actually I thought your purchase was very savvy ... I could not believe they would sell it for $5.00 ... especially since it is in perfect condition.

  5. It's GORGEOUS!! What a great find!
    Thrift shops out here are mostly musty clothes either shrunk in the wash or stretched out of shape or stained, plus shelf upon shelf of knick-knacks that have been cleared out of houses for what seems like centuries.
    The ones that do have some furniture are few and far between.
