Saturday I had our Home to myself!
I enjoy those moments, because I can putzy around the house and
spruce the place up. I get the most done in this time for some reason
and have fun while I'm at it!
This vintage piece we "picked" off the curb this summer,
right across the street from our place!
Shhh, don't tell our neighbor's I don't think they saw us! he, he...
Do you ever do that?
As you can see, it needs ALOT of work!
The knobs are missing....
for some reason extra holes were drilled....
the lock piece is missing on the top drawer....
but, it has character.
Like this little bit of detail at the bottom!
I want to fill the random holes and paint this piece.
I would like to try for the first time some of the Annie Sloan paint
that is getting all the rage on blogs.
Sounds like something I could do and would
really make this piece pop again!
I'm thinking something in an aged green color....
so if any of you out there can give me some suggestions or hints
I would GREATLY appreciate it!
The top was sanded down for some reason and again
random holes were drilled here and there. This piece looked
as though it may have at one time been a wash stand or possibly
had a mirror attached. Of course, whatever was there has been
long gone. The drawers had saw dust in them and of course
bug evidence, so I think....hope, it was used in their garage.
Would you use this in your garage?
So, in my putzin' fun on Saturday, I pulled it in to fill an empty space
in our "fancy sittin' area" and started finding pretties to put on it.
I picked up this cute little plate at T.J. Maxx a few weeks ago.
I liked the little design on it!
It had to go right in front of my most Favorite picture in our Home!
These 3 are what I do all my "nesting" for!
So when they're Home, they can be proud....
I Love these girls!
Sometimes the best stuff can be found on the curb!
You never know when it will fit right in. Can't wait to find some paint
and get started. I looked for new knobs at Hobby Lobby the other day.
They were 50% off and too cute! But, the holes are 3 inches apart and
the knobs I liked were more like 4 inches apart. What to do?!
Again, if you have any hints or suggestions on using
Annie Sloan paint for the first time user, like me
I'd love to hear!
Thanks for stopping!
Have a delightful day!
