Question Hello

I have a problem that I wish some of you good people might help me with. And thanks for allowing me on the site
I painted a few years ago and I painted on canvas. I have started up again, but this time I am painting furniture. My first project was a metal filing cabinet and it turned out beautiful. But here's my problem. Canvas is cheap, furniture is not. I just bought a house and the filing cabinet was in the attic, so it didn't cost me anything.

I've tried Craigslist and everything is too expensive. By the time I find something I want to paint, I would already have almost $100 in it! Does anyone have any ideas of where to find cheap wood furniture or metal furniture? I found a filing cabinet like the one I painted today at a used furniture store and they wanted $50 for the beat up thing

I would truly appreciate any help. I have searched the net and have come up with nothing.... Maybe I'm just not looking for the right thing.

And BTW: I use acrylics to paint with
Also, I live in Jackson, TN

Thanks for listening and I'm glad to be here,
jumper

Re: Hello

Hello, Jumper. Welcome. I enjoy painting furniture, walls, found items also. Really, I see the initial investment worthwhile as the outcome and profit always win out. Reading the informative posts in the Decorative Arts/Murals/Faux forum has always been enriching for me. Maybe you can acquire some hints & help there. Enjoy your time at WetCanvas and thanks for saying "Hello".

Re: Hello

Welcome to Wet Canvas!
Garage or estate sales often have finds that are reasonable. I think you will find in a tight economy used items are much sought after.
Enjoy exploring the many diverse Forums.
If you need any help navigating the site, just ask.
You can access any Forum by using the “Forum Jump” located at the bottom right of the screen OR the Channels drop down menu at the upper left.

Thanks for the welcome and the help. The Garage sale is a good idea if I didn't get up at noon, lol.
