Where Are They Now?
October 10, 2012
Did you think I was referring to the past American Idol winners or teen stars of a popular 80s sitcom or flick? (I love those shows by the way). No, I’m referring to something else, but first, there are some questions that come to mind when I look at this image.
What ever happened to Emilio? How is it humanly possible that Rob still looks so amazing? Who else loved Ralph on Dancing with the Stars? #ageless How unforgettable was Patrick as Johnny Castle? Who’s that guy in the middle next to Matt? Will Tom ever convince a gal to become wife #4? These things I wonder about.
Back to my point. I was asked the other day about all that furniture I’ve dragged home from thrift stores and revamped over the years, so I’m here to answer the question, where are they now?
These are the pieces I still own and have sitting somewhere in my house:
A long time ago I thought I’d take up furniture painting as a side business but later decided against it with all the other stuff going on in my life. All of these pieces are the thrift store finds I repainted or restained for family or friends.
And these I ended up selling or donating:
There was only one casualty out of the bunch, a velvet chair that was mysteriously broken by one of the monkeys in my house a few months ago and my motherly intuition suspects it was being used as a prop for jumping but I have no direct evidence so…
… the case of its destruction is still under investigation.
That’s the update on all that stuff I’ve dragged home from thrift stores over the years.
You can see all of these in the Furniture Makeover gallery.
Have you kept all of your secondhand finds you’ve collected over the past few years? If not, did you sell them or give them away? Do share.
