$79 dining room sideboard

As part of last fall’s renovation-that-wore-me-out, we turned our old kitchen screened porch into our new dining room.  Before it was done, I knew I wanted to have a sideboard for that space to hold all of our tablecloths, candles, etc.  I loved the look of this piece from Thrifty Decor Chick:

The color, the legs, the elegance-without-fussiness – it was perfect.

So with that image in mind I took off the the local consignment stores.  It didn’t take me long to find this:

The barf-pukey green color is hideous in this photo – I took it with my Droid under florescent lights.  Barf.

And here was the price tag – and the date was right for the markdown price!!

Boom-a-roon-ga.  $79.20 and it was all mine!

So home it came and I had a little nook framed out at one end of the dining room JUST for it!

I love the way it looks with the farm table an wood plank ceiling…

And the top is so pretty –

I thought for a hot minute that I would paint it black to match the chairs, because when it was all by itself it looked a little too Brady Bunch to me.

But I changed my mind…
