As most of you know, I have really been working at purging and re-thrifting treasures this past year. I have donated a LOT of things in 2013. I didn’t do a lot of buying, more purging. And it has felt wonderful! Well, Troy and I made one last haul of items to the donation store before 2014 was here.
Everything we donated today were freebies. Either given to me by a friend who was moving or curbside pickups. I love to refinish furniture and had high hopes of doing just that with all of these.
But, reality reared it’s ugly head and I never had the chance to get to them.
We don’t have a garage or basement so, the only time to work on a project like sanding and refinishing furniture is when it is warm outside.
The problem is as soon as it gets warm outside, our entire focus goes straight to our business, DTL Herbs! We work almost non-stop prepping and planting gardens for our herbs. Then right into plant sales. product development, production and farmer’s markets. We don’t come up for air between April and September.
So, refinishing projects like furniture pieces is just not going to happen at this point.
The above was a curbside freebie. It is a 1950 - 1960’s bar cabinet. It just needed some TLC.
You opened it up and the bar slid out. The insides were in great condition. And it lit up. There was a place under this to store more “cocktail accouterments”.
It was just a fun piece and I am sure someone will be happy to buy it and give it a light makeover.
Have you any last minute items to purge before the new year?
