Ok, so I’ve got nothin‘ for you today. I have a lot of things primed in the spray booth and things that are in the works, so I will have some great after picture for you very soon! Since I didn’t have anything new, I wanted to share a couple of pieces I completed this summer. I’ve received a ton of compliments on this dresser and I received the highest compliment of all – it sold very fast. I purchased this at an auction for $45.00. That’s a little more than I normally pay, but I loved the shape and it was in great condition. It just needed a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware. The decorative painting was inspired by a painted buffet in a magazine ad that I clipped out a few years ago. Unfortunately, I completed this piece pre-blog, so I did not take a before picture. Just picture it a dingy cream color with brass hardware. This dresser deserved better.
I also bought this headboard at an auction for $1.00. It was just a dark wood. Not bad, but nothing special. I fell in love with the way the dresser turned out, so I painted the headboard to match. I think this would look so charming in a young girl’s room or a guest room.
I think it was $1.00 well spent, don’t you?
I’m posting this to Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home. Make sure you check it out!
