You may have read that we love garage sales around here! Home decor is something great to shop for at garage sales. I recently found this wooden letter ‘R’ at a garage sale (it was actually my next door neighbor’s garage sale…is it good neighbor etiquette to buy their unwanted home decor??) for just a buck. Our last name starts with ‘R,’ and I couldn’t pass it up.
It started out orange. Despite the fact that we have an orange bathroom in our home, orange is not really my color. I found some white paint we already had on hand. It took me maybe fifteen minutes to get it painted. Painting over orange with white paint required two coats.
This was a quick project that brightened our breakfast nook up a bit. Sometimes buying used can be fun and inexpensive. This time it brought a small change in our home for a very small price and very little time.
