Midnight Madness at Goodwill
I am proud to say that I'm a card carrying
Goodwill shopper in good standing.
(I have a punch card in every purse.)
But... I never knew about their
Midnight Madness sale.
I just happened to be there when they
announced that they were closing at
7 p.m. and reopening from 8-midnight.
Everything (except new items)
would be on sale at 50% off!
It was my lucky
I arrived back at the store at 8:10
and the parking lot was full, and
every shopping cart was taken!
Well, I would just have to make do.
This baby changing table did not catch
my eye at first glance. (No babies here.)
How about a potting table?
Not really outdoor material...
but for 10 bucks I couldn't pass on it.
It looked like it had never been used,
but was just a little "loose".
So I asked Hubby for help.
He took it apart and glued the dowels.
Then he tightened up the screws.
I remembered some little black wheels
that I never used on the plastic storage
drawers in my craft room closet.
So, Hubby drilled some holes
and popped in the wheels.
For 10 bucks and very little effort...
this is how I will be using it!
It is now my dish cart/storage table.
This is where I will be using it!
It fits in the closet where I keep my fabrics,
extra linens, and craft room overflow.
Those nifty little wheels allow me to roll
it in and out for easy access. I can also
roll it into the other room when I am
setting up for a tablescape.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by to visit.
I also want to thank everyone who left
me a sweet comment or sent me
an email on the passing of my
