I thought I would show you a dresser I worked on for Farm Chicks, but that never made it there. Here’s a before picture without its drawers. (I’m so bad at taking before pics.)
This dresser was a craigslist find. It was in sad shape and the top was peeling off, but I loved the cute legs and curvy detail at the bottom. It sat in my garage a couple years and I finally dragged it out to work on it.
Here is the after picture.
I loved how it turned out. I gave it a creamy base coat and a couple coats of minty green paint I had leftover. I was going to put decals on each drawer, but loved just the one. I even had a mirror that I gave the same treatment to. Both pieces ended up at Monticello where they sold just a few days later. Another dealer bought them for her daughter. So sweet! I love projects like this. As you may have noticed on my last post, my booth at FC was quite full, so it’s a good thing I didn’t bring this cutie along.
On Friday, I hit a few sales and a couple thrift stores and found some good stuff. Here’s just some of the bigger items I scored.
Got the brown desk, metal, scrolly pot holders, colander and lamp shade at estate sales, the chairs and lamp came from Value Village and the drawer box and giant flower basket came from Goodwill. I ran into a dealer friend, Kay, at an estate sale and she had the shopping cart for me in her car.
I also found some lovely Victorian buttons and some other small things that I have already forgotten. Oops! Anyway, today I am headed into Stars with a big buffet that I scored awhile back. I’ll make sure to take a picture to share with you on White Wednesday. Happy Monday!
