Thrift Score Thursday #85 Rattan Vanity Score

Hey Guys!

I'm so epically excited about my find this week. I know I'm on this whole 6 week bathroom renovation deadline thing (don't even ask about that progress.. just kidding, here's the latest update.), but this score started with good intention!

I was flipping the Craigslist listing for "vanity." I'm hoping my dream vanity is going to pop up out of thin air. Because it's a week into a 6 week renovation, and I'm just now searching for bathroom vanities. It didn't even occur to me that furniture vanities, like the ones you do makeup at in your bedroom would pop up. But they were and I was scanning past them until my thumb stopped at a rattan vanity. I never knew such a thing existed! I even looked on Etsy, and didn't find anything like it. That never happens!

So I emailed the seller with an offer. She said she received another offer for the same price but I emailed first so she'd sell to me. She asked if I could come by the next day but I had to work so I offered another $10 to hold it until the following evening. She agreed.

The next evening I gathered up my family, borrowed my mom's SUV, drove a couple cities over, rang the door bell and no answer. I stood there for a bit trying not to be rude but I had to ring the bell again. Still more standing and no answer. I was so bummed! I thought for sure she hadn't held it for me.

Later that evening I got an email from her. She apologized and said she'd completely forgotten about the meet up and went out to dinner. I was ticked off but also relieved it was still available. So we did the whole rigamarole again, and it went without a hitch this time!

And now I have the most epic vanity I ever could have wanted. It's perfectly my style and fits perfectly on this sliver of wall. Yay!
