I really am trying my darndest to ‘use what I have’ and get rid of the inventory that I have boxed up and stored and not buy a LOT of new stuff. Still, it’s a good idea to ‘get out and look’ on a regular basis. You just never know when you might come across that ‘perfect piece’. Furniture though is one thing that I don’t have a huge stash of, so I picked up a few things last week at an estate sale and the thrift store.Thrifted little step ladder. I really prefer them to be more naturally grubbied up and paint splattered. But when you can’t find grubby; you can always CREATE grubby. These little ladders always sell well and are great for displaying on.
I broke one of my own rules when buying this piece. I normally don’t buy pieces that the legs need a lot of work on, simply because they have to be hand sanded and it’s very time consuming and labor intensive. If I can’t make over my pieces in a timely manner, I don’t make any money doing this. BUT, it you are buying pieces for yourself to keep, the time element really doesn’t apply. I just might have to KEEP this one!
