I was 24 years old when I bought my first piece of furniture. I found this gorgeous side board/buffet at Salvation Army for $50. But I couldn't buy it until my husband saw it. So I kept trying to drag him in there but he wouldn't budge until we could actually afford buying the side board. I was pretty sad, it was 2 weeks to his next paycheck.

Every day I would go into Salvation Army and look longingly at it. Well, as the weeks went by, the price went from $50 to $40 to $30 to $20. Then, on the first day of the month my husband got paid and I dragged him to the thrift store.

When we got there, there was a %70 off sign on everything in the store. There was NO way that the sideboard would still be there. But it was! He loved it (Thank God!) and we ended up buying it for $7! When we brought it home, we found the original price tag from Salvation Army in a drawer. They wanted to sell it for $120!

It isn't the BEST as far as quality wood goes. However, it is a nice solid piece of furniture. It has a mid century modern style and we love it. It was my first piece of real furniture that I actually bought and I am pretty darn proud of it!

Our apartment finally started feeling like a home when we hung up some art and family photographs and updated our lighting.
