Happy Monday! I hope you had a restful weekend and are remembering the great Martin Luther King, Jr. today.

Before the holidays, I went to visit my parents and we hit up the estate sales (as we often do).

First up, I got this sweet yellow ’50s Cosco stool. It needs some TLC but it’s totally in working order. I’m thinking a treatment of brasso and vinyl cleaner will polish this baby right up. I love its vintage charm! Oh and it was $5! I saw the same stool in similar condition down the road from this estate sale for $45. Crazy.

Next up, this great little cabinet. It was only $7! I love the size and the legs. It’s perfect for holding our water cooler right now. It needs some TLC, too. I’m thinking a good scrub and a coat of paint will do nicely for this little guy.

Overall the two pieces together I love, but this space in the kitchen is lacking some serious inspiration. Those photos on the wall are from my trip to Japan and the frames just aren’t my style anymore. I’m hoping to give this space a cheap makeover in the coming months. Oh, yeah, and it’s also the place for our trash and recycling. A bit of an eye sore to the right. I’m ready for something different!

Have a wonderful day!
