I wasnt deliberately looking for junk this week, I really do have enough to keep me busy!
This particular trip down the mountains was for the sole purpose of going to the hardware for some hinges and doorknobs.I have been searching high and low for some oldies, but they get snatched up pretty quick!
I like to drive down the back roads, it is fun, a bit like a go-cart track! As I come out the other end of the race track, I cant help but realise Im just near a friends shop, so I have to call in!
It just so happens to be a 2nd-hand furniture shop, and a junk room out the back! My Irish friend is always so kind, and knows what I like.I dont even have to bargain with him, he just drops the price straight away.I could have bought at least 5 items from him, but he got me on one of my strong days, well my 'one and only' strong day!
I told him I was just looking today, and unfortunately, he didnt have any hinges or doorknobs!I said Id see him in another few months cause that is the kind of friendship we have, quarterly!
I head home without any 'hardware' from the hardware, too expensive !
A couple of hours later, a ute pulls up, and two guys deliver all 5 of the items I'could have' bought from my friends shop!!The guys gave me a note which said...'see you in a few months you can pay me then'!
How sweet, and such a wonderful surprise!
So these are the befores, and I will share the afters soon....
This one's a keeper, fits in my office perfectly, well if I cleaned up the office, it would!
