So last weekend my dad Jamesy and I were out doing a little yard sale-ing and I found a great piece!
It was sitting behind a bunch of stuff and covered entirely with pez dispensers. I saw this little cutie and even though it was in some serious need of a bath and a little love it was in great shape. I asked how much and she said 25.00. I offered 15 thinking she'd come back with 20 but instead she smiled and said "Sure".
15 Bucks?! Really? I couldn't get the truck backed up quick enough to get it loaded!
So today when I was drinking my morning coffee I decided today was the day to get it done. So I filled the old drawer handle holes and the Cowboy drilled me some new ones. Jamesy, Antique Hunter Extraordinare, had these beautiful little knobs in a bucket in his shop which he so generously donated.
A little paint, a little wax, a little gold leaf, a little blue/gray in the trim and 4 hours later.........
Nice "old patina" on the top.
A little gold trim that's been worn off after years of use (wink!)
A little extra storage space.
15 bucks and a Sunday well spent!
