True Picker Fashion

Over Labor Day weekend we had a soccer tournament on the other side of town.  In preparation for my long days, I scoured Craigslist for any gems in the area. 

I spotted one, made an appointment and scooted over to a lady’s home in between games.  While picking up my piece, I asked what else she might have for sale.  That’s what they do on that pickers show, so I went for it.

Little did I know that she had a TON of things.  Some were true antiques and she wanted too much for them.  Remember, I am thrifty. 

But she did have a few things that I could afford and not feel guilty painting.

After 45 minutes, I left her cool air conditioned house with a few things and a scheduled return trip the next day.

They are finally all revamped.

DRESSER:

A solid wood dresser, dove-tailed drawers and darling hardware.

Now looks like this:

I was sad that I could not use the original hardware – one was missing.  Now I am on the hunt for a 7 drawer something!  I love the pulls!

You can see I tried to salvage them, but it wasn’t working for me.

Too many projects 020 

The other gems I scored were:

Now if you saw my space posted late last week, you know I have no place for these babies.  Stay tuned.
