When our barstool transformation was in full swing I brought our back-ups
up from the basement, they're actually old metal art stools.
I thought I'd share where I snagged them, along with this set of three school lockers.
A new school was being built and the old one was closing. (Tip #1)
I'd been on the hunt for lockers but at $100 each and the cost of painting,
I was still on the prowl for a bargain.
Saturday am ~ rise and shine ~ we need to be first in line.
Woo hoo! We're first! Only a couple other families showed up...for the day!
Yes! We had our pick of lockers for $20 each!
mr. simple we had to do was unscrew them from the wall and each other
70 screws each, oops hadn't thought of that, or a screwdriver. (Tip #2)
By the end of four hours we were best buds with the other family,
and they brought the lockers home for us!
Didn't think about a vehicle to get them home. (Tip #3)
They're awesome for storage.
Bet you can't guess what 'detail boy' loves.
This should give you a big clue as to our life.
The art stools were $10 each and I didn't really need them, so I only took two.
The edge of the seats are perfectly worn with little dabs of paint here and there.
I can picture them stacked on top of the school art table at the end of the day.
Have you snagged any bargains from an unlikely source?
