New "Old" Treasures

Remember this little table in need of a makeover? The one my husband got for $5.00 at a garage sale? A little sanding... a little stain... and a few coats of urethane and...
a very pretty piece just perfect by the front door. I am not sure what the wood is but it is a beautiful shade of reddish brown.
This sweet dresser/desk/vanity was sitting in my sisters garage as a cast off that nobody wanted. I saw it from a distance and thought it would be cute painted. She graciously gave it to me and I loaded it into my car trunk. On closer examination, I found it to be in such great shape just as it was and thought of the perfect place for it in my dining room as a sideboard with storage to boot! Now I have to find some pretty aqua drawer liner to match the rest of the room so I can fill it with crisp white linens and special serving pieces.


These hands have been most busy this week. I have repainted the living room, the up-stairs hallway and stripped the wall paper from the main bathroom (used by Abbey and house guests) and repainted it. All of these projects cost a total of $23.00 as I used paint and supplies from previous projects. I have a few details to finish and then I will post pictures...

You have been very busy! The fix up job on the little table looks great. I agree the other looks great as it, without paint.

I am so happy you found a use for that desk! It looks great there as opposed to our garage as my mom attempts to downsize- it looks wonderful and I love the finish on the side table!

Miss you + love you! I can't wait to see the new painting as well.
