one last furniture fix
Sorry for the sporadic posting (or lack thereof) lately. I just really don’t have anything interesting to post about.
Trust me…you don’t want to hear about my pre-move activities. You’ll die of boredom. 🙂
Let’s just say I’ve had two giant sales and made countless trips to the clothing donation drop box.
It feels so good to weed out the excess. Like an instant weight loss, only I didn’t have to give up chocolate chip cookies! 😉
Purging (albeit very productive) isn’t really “blog worthy” and it’s not nearly as much fun as thrifty finds or furniture transformations!
On that note…today I was going through full-blown withdrawal. I had the shakes and was jonesing for one last hit of thrifty furniture before the move. And I figured…with all the pieces that went out surely one eensy weensy piece could come in.
So I got my kijiji on. And looky what I found.
Oh, and just to make you extra-jealous…it was $50.
you: no WAY!
me: YES way!
Just look at this handsome devil.
A 1920’s walnut chest on chest with original hardware.
It had been in the owner’s family for three generations. From father to son and onto to his son.
I love the grain, the shape, the legs, the hardware, well…basically everything about it.
This will be my first chalk paint project after we get settled in our new house. That trend-setter Miss Mustard Seed has gone and done it again and gotten everybody fired up to use chalk paint.
Hopefully it will be easier than her dang sheet music wreaths! 😉
Don’t give up on me…once we get settled in a few weeks, I’ll have projects aplenty.
