I have to admit, I think I'm a little late to the party on this but, have you guys checked out your local Facebook Marketplace? At first glance, it may seem like a bunch of crap your neighbors are selling (and it kinda is) but dig a little farther and, it's kinda epic. Think craigslist but more user friendly. I'm talking better photos, more social and the ability to do a preliminary FB stalking investigation of each seller before you drive to their home. It's awesome!
Scroll down to see my local faves (your welcome Bay area readers) and be sure to read the little end blurb where I share how this has inspired me to consider a new pototental hobby! (ps - it's not just FB marketplace shopping, although I will be doing a lot of that too!)
I know, pretty impressive right? There's so many cool pieces at a great deal. Some, in original condition and others, totally refurbished. This last part got me thinking, how fun would it be to transform and old, dying piece of furniture into something new and totally usable again? I was wondering if anyone has any input on this because I'm super interested.
Do you guys refinish furniture? If so do you enjoy it? Have any tips or blogs I should check out?
Full disclosure, I"ve wanted to take on projects like this for a long time but I know they are super time consuming and in some cases, I'm not sure if I'd want to keep it afterwards. I have a really small place currently so the project sounds fun but the end result sounds --- space consuming. Haha
Looking forward to all of your input on this slightly off topic, topic. Also, if you need help finding the goods from your area, tell me where you live and maybe I'll put a similar blog post together for you! Like I said, I'll be on this sight a lot now. #DontJudgeMe
