I have had this great find since early summer when hubby and I hit a subdivision yard sale not too far from us. I was looking for something such as a bookcase to store some of my craft items and such in. We came across this one young couple who had something, and believe it or not we actually left it and came back again. Painted black I wasn't too sure if I wanted it, but decided to ask the price anyway.
Outside was this piece and another one that looks similar, but no glass doors. They wanted $75 the first time. When I came back I asked if they would take $55, I know, I know, my hubby's mom taught me how to bargain!!! So the young lady asked her husband and he said they would take $60. That doesn't sound too bad. I told her ok $60 was good. (Now remember it was this piece below and another matching one)
Then she asked if I wanted another piece to the set. I asked her how much and she said nothing, they would give it away with the other two. So I was a little reluctant not knowing what it was until I went in the house and saw the armoire!!! SOLD!!!! Yes!!! I'll take it!! Are you sure? Yes, they were sure. They were tired of moving it since it was so heavy.
I could not believe that I got all three solid wood pieces for $60 bucks!! Of course we had to borrow the neighbor's truck, but hey, I made breakfast so he was happy! So now I need to decide what color to paint it. The black is ok, but it does have a black hole effect in some of the rooms. Most of my furniture is oak. Any ideas out there? I was thinking maybe a grey too, but who knows? They have been around for a while, but hopefully I'll decide before next year!!
