I found this bed at a thrift store. They were having a You name your price deal. I couldnt pass it up. Took it home and cut the footboard in half to make a double decker bench. It was pretty labor intensive! But I love it. I guess thats why I kept it for myself!
I saw these shutters at a sale last year. Just couldnt justify $5 each! Patience pays off...this year she had them marked $5 but this time it was for ALL SIX! She came to my sale and said, Why didnt I think of that? Kept them too!

I love going to sales and finding great bargains!
