My sister has this really fabulous dry sink, and I originally thought I would find an old one on Craigslist to refinish, but what do you know?! Those bad boys are pricey. I'm talking about 500 smackers or so, which is WAY out of our budget right now.
We hunted around a little, and finally decided to invest in a nice piece of furniture that would last for us (no particle board), but that wasn't crazy expensive. I guess we could have saved a little bit of money if we had bought an older one and refinished or repainted, but sometimes it is worth it (to us) to spend the extra money and get a piece that will last. We found a really great sideboard on Overstock.com (although I later saw it on Joss and Main as well!).
Within a week or so, we were excited to see this on our porch after naptime. This is the picture I posted to instagram, hence the blur.
|please ignore the little shadow box on the wall, he was there before the sideboard, but he has now found a new home|
It really makes the room feel more balanced, and once I paint those chairs we think this room is just about complete! Which makes for a grand total of ONE room that is (almost) done. Ah well, home wasn't built in a day.
