Gotta Love the Barter System.

Have you bartered lately?  I have.  I love to barter.  Someone’s trash is always someone else’s treasure.  I am lovin’ my latest barter, but first I want to show you one of the things I sent my friend’s way.  Her living room is mostly red, black, and tan so don’t you think this little beaut fit in perfectly?

Yup that is my latest and greatest thrift store find, but did you see what it looked like before?

And yes, I did actually manage to snag a “before” shot.  Surprised, speechless, I know.  Here are some other shots of how it turned out.

I love how it can now be used as a shelf, thanks to the removal of the outdated lattice.  My second favorite thing, is this hidden, little, blue door.  Ahhhh….What do you think she will store in it?  Hmmmm…

Lucky for me she had an amazing chair that was given to her that didn’t fit into her color scheme at all, but guess what…it sure fit into mine! 

As soon as I laid eyes upon her I fell in love.  You know how I like my curves, my tuftedness, and don’t forget my favorite color is green.  Have you guessed what I swapped for yet… dun, dun, DAAAA!

If you said a retro, lime green, super comfy, crushed velvet, swivel chair, you were right on the money!  Ladies and Gentlemen, here she is:

She looks a tad bit yellow in this pic, she is actually a TRUE lime green.

Check out those tufts, people!  Good thing I love the fabric, because it costs extra to reupholster when there are tufts!

Have you bartered lately?

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
