What's in My Garage: Furniture Edition

Sometimes I wonder why we spent so much money building a garage when my SUV never actually makes it inside.   Does anyone else have that problem?  My parking spot is usually taken up by my sons 4-wheeler (always parked front and center!), half finished projects scattered on the floor, pallets, scrap wood and random crap treasures that I pick up from Goodwill, thrift stores, yard sales or my parents garage.  My husband just loves when I pull in the driveway and unload more furniture to hoard up the garage.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you may remember the $20.00 campaign desk I picked up from Goodwill.  I had been looking for a campaign piece for months and was thrilled to find one that was a great price and smoke free.  The only problem is I don't have a place for a desk, so this guy will probably get repainted and sold.

Just the other day while out on my lunch break I picked up a two drawer sofa table for $15.00.  If you know me then you're probably not surprised why it caught my eye.   I have grand plans for this piece and hope it will make it's way into our home.  If not, it will more than likely be sold as well.

Another piece I picked up with great potential is this $7.00 silverware chest.

I already started tearing out the inside and hope to have this piece finished soon.

Can you believe my mom was going to get rid of two vintage milk crates?

I'm thinking they'll make a great addition to our front porch this fall!

And how about this old wood and chicken wire box.  Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I'm sure I'll figure something out :)

I think between finishing the basement and the projects waiting for me in the garage I have enough to keep me busy and out of trouble for awhile.  If I'm lucky, maybe I'll even be able to park in the garage before it snows.


  1. i have the same desk in my garage and it has been sitting and sitting....

    1. Mine's been sitting for awhile too! We should have a painting date :)

  2. Omg, I do the exact same thing. My husband never knows what he will find out there. My kids are college aged or just finished, so I find good stuff for them too for their apartments.

  3. This was like reading about my own life ��
