I recently discovered the place on the web where you can buy stuff directly from individuals. it’s called Craigslist. Huh? What??? You’ve already heard of it??? Really? Am I the last one to know about this glorious place where one can find a French armoire for less than $400???
That’s right, she wanted less than $400 for it. When I saw this armoire, I did not pass GO, I went straight over to buy this sweet puppy.
I was a little concerned that it wouldn’t fit in my SUV. I prayed, we hoisted it up and BINGO, it went straight in with less than an inch to spare on each side.
And do you know the best part???
The lovely lady I bought it from, actually had already painted it this wonderful gray color, added the white accents, AND distressed it.
All I had to do was get it home, and up the stairs without the help of my husband who hates to move furniture, so I did pay a friend to move it up the stairs for me, but of course I did not include that $ in the price quoted above.
It must be old, can you see it came with its own cobwebs?
I moved my daughter’s TV and DVD player into the armoire. They were in this piece. I moved this bar (it was originally made to be a bar) downstairs to the dining room. I’m currently storing my tea and some linens in there.
You can see it in its new home in the photo below. Click here to see more of the dining room.
So, I’m so happy I found this new armoire for my daughter’s room.
When I told my friend Peggy about the armoire, she wanted pictures; she ALWAYS wants pictures. When I sent the photos she said that it looked terrible in this room. I thought, WHAT???? I was surprised, since Peggy and I usually have the same taste. If I love it, so does she, and vice versa. Then she said that it would look so much better in her house. Ha, ha Peggy, you are TOO FUNNY, but you are not getting this armoire!
