Happy Dance!

I know I have already posted once today but I couldn't wait until tomorrow to post this one. I was beginning to think that I would never find the right dining room set. I have been looking EVERYWHERE and the few I did like were pretty expensive. So imagine my surprise the other day when I logged onto Ebay. I did a local search and found my DREAM dining room set listed for local pick-up for an opening bid of $100. The seller had her phone number on the listing so I called and she said that for $150 she would end the auction early and sell it to me. So I was going for it. Then yesterday she called and said that she tried to fix a few scratches by refinishing the top of the table and that she didn't do it right.

She then told me that if I was still interested in looking at it I could have it for $100 cash today. So she sent me pics and my aunt and uncle went to look at it at a local meeting spot and bought it. The top is not perfect. It came out darker than the rest of the set but it is still very nice. A solid wood 7 pc. dining set for $100!!! I am SO happy and excited. Let me tell you those chairs are heavy. I picked one up and my mouth dropped. Very nice and sturdy set. So tonight I am doing the happy dance all around my kitchen. I LOVE the color and it is a little bigger than my old one. A seriously awesome find!

Now I don't have to spend $500 on a set right before Christmas. I can put that money to better use. See...you can have your cake and eat it too. Yum! Cake! That will be fun to eat at my new dining table!:)
