Victory is Mine!!!!

Sooo...I got up bright and early{not so bright, actually, but whatever} and went back to the yard sale where I saw this beauty yesterday. I asked the lady, who is 74, if she would come off the price and she said, "No, I'm funny like that, but I'd rather give it to the needy than to come down." Um, okay. I said that I only had $40 on me. That was as high as I was willing to go. I told her I'd have to ask my husband and she hands me her phone. She's a spunky one!! I called him and said that they wouldn't come down and he said that $50 was a little steep. I told her I'd have to think about it. By that time her son-in-law had gotten there and so I asked about these three chairs that they had. He told me they were $5 for each one. I started walking towards the chairs and I overhead the lady ask if he'd take forty for the cabinet. He asked what I was doing with it. Apparently they were concerned that I was going to buy it and turn around to re-sell it. Um, no!! I told them I was going to use it and that I loved it. They agreed to $40 as that was all I had on me. He said that for $50 that I could have the cabinet and all three chairs, to which I replied, "I only have forty." He then said that I could have the cabinet and all three chairs for $40!! God is so good!! So let's see...I either paid $40 for the cabinet and got the chairs for free or I paid $25 for the piece and $5 for each chair. Either way, I won.
By the way, what color do I paint her?? I'm leaning towards green...

Love the lines on these chairs!! They are so cute!!
What good deals have y'all gotten lately??

I love the cabinet and the little chairs! Do you have a special spot picked out for it?
I am loving the green idea or a fresh coat of white with some distressing.
