TJ Maxx Clearance Finds



I stopped on my way home from work Friday to see what was new at my favorite stores, you know the ones, TJ Maxx, Ross, and Home Goods.  I found two great tables at TJ Maxx on clearance.  This little white one had a leg broken off.  But it was marked down to $29.00 so I got it.  







I got out my wood glue and a clamp, wiped off the broken pieces to get any dust off and then put glue on both pieces, clamped them together, then left it to dry over night.  If you've never used this wood glue, let me tell you I think it's stronger than the wood itself after it has cured.



I put it in our bathroom. I finally finished painting it last night, well almost, the last thing that needs to be painted are the niches. You can see they're still white. But, I'll show you the before and after photos hopefully soon.  





The next one was marked down to $69.00 but I thought that it was still a little too pricey for what all was broke on it.  One of the back legs was broken off and missing (so we both thought), one door was off and the insert was out. So, I asked the manager if she could take any more off of it and she marked it down to $50.00




But, when I got home and took out the drawers I found the leg.  It had gotten wedged between the top and side of one of the drawers :)






I scrapped the lip of the door and reinserted the panel.  I filled the door hinge holes with glue and screwed the door back on.  After it had set for about 2 hours I turned it on its top and glued the leg back on.


I put it at the top of the staircase.  I just love the way it looks there.









This morning I started painting my kitchen cabinets (at least the parts that the backsplash will touch).  I think I might need to paint something else to get used to painting with chalk paint.  I knew it would be thick I just didn't realize how thick.  But, I do think I'll like using it because a LITTLE goes a long way.


Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out the clearance items and don't be afraid to ask for additional $$$ off.

Blessings,
Theresa
