Our family loves garage sales. You can get really good deals on high quality items, if you know how to spot them. During our town’s giant neighborhood wide garage sale, we found a cool little wooden children’s chair that was perfect for my daughter. It was just a little beat up, with the original finish peeling. However, it’s made of solid wood, and it folds up. The seller had a $3 sticker on it. Sold!
Now that warm weather has finally arrived, my daughter and I fixed up the chair for her, making it not only a great DIY project but a father-daughter one to boot. Also, she was able to do most of it hands on, truly making it her own.
