Hi my lovely readers! I know, it has been ages since I wrote a blog post. As some of you may know, my job which is supposed to be part-time has been more full-time lately. I have also been studying for a national certification exam that has taken every moment of my spare time. I apologize!
Well, the good news is that I PASSED my exam. Whew!! I really put in a lot of hours at the end because lord knows I did not want to take the darn test again.
Well, I think all of my hard work was rewarded because a few days after I took the test, my dear friend Shavonda from SGStyle texted me about an amazing set of vintage Thomasville faux bamboo furniture for sale for a steal on Craigslist. The entire set, which included a dining table, four chairs, a china hutch and a buffet was only $400. The problem was that I did not need all of the furniture. Well, it turned out that Shavonda had a friend who wanted the chairs and I wanted the table and hutch, so Shavonda took the buffet and we were ready to roll.
Here are photos of the hutch (sorry for the photo quality but I took them on my phone.)
I am in love with it!! I am going to live with it in this color for a while and see if I want to paint it. I also found some faux bamboo dining chairs that I haven’t had time to post about, but I am going to have a totally new dining room!! My husband officially wins husband of the year award because he helped me move all of this furniture and even drove three hours to get me the faux bamboo chairs. He seriously thinks I am crazy, but I don’t care. I can’t pass up a vintage decor steal.
I hope you have all been doing well and I am definitely going to be posting more regularly now that my test is over!
