An Incredible Goodwill Find for J & A’s Bedroom

I spent all day yesterday shopping for the finishing touches for Gwen’s bedroom and bathroom. I promise…it’ll be finished…SOON!!

So while I’m finishing that up, I wanted to show you an incredible find from Goodwill that I’m going to use in John & Alice’s bedroom.


Remind you of anything?!

When I pulled into the Goodwill parking lot and saw these (potential) beauties sitting there, I couldn’t believe it. For a split second, I thought that my mom had gotten tired of storing mine, and had decided to give them away. But I realized quickly that while these are similar to mine, they have several differences. These have much lower backs (perfect for sitting at the foot of the bed), the seats are wider, and the legs are fancier. And they were a steal at $30 each!!

I passed them up at first, because I didn’t think I had a use for them. But I just couldn’t bear the thought of passing up such (potentially) beautiful chairs.

Then I realized that these chairs would actually look much better in J & A’s bedroom than the ones I had previously selected. Remember those? Let me refresh your memory.


Don’t get me wrong…I absolutely love those chairs. The funny thing is that when my mom and I were rolling them out to the car from the estate sale where I found them, I told her that they would make great office chairs.

Well, guess who just happens to need two comfy office chairs? I DO!! So these little chairs will eventually get a makeover and have a new home in my office.

And then these guys…


…will get a makeover of their own, and find a home in this room…


…which is gradually looking more and more like my vision for the room…


By the way, the gorgeous cherry wood-look vinyl flooring installation will begin either tomorrow or Thursday. Yay! A couple of you asked if I’m going to be installing the flooring myself. Ummm…no. That’s one job I’ll gladly leave to the pros. 🙂

    These designs are elegant, beautiful, and seem like they are expensive! I'd love to learn more about the history of this furniture. Do have a brick and mortar store where you sell anything like this, or do you know of one?

    That is a great job by the
    Handyman of the decoration of the room. I want to get the Handyman at the cheaper rates for the painting of my house.
