I was going to resale this....WAS being the word!

Well I was able to sneak another
piece of furniture by sweet husband...
he just shook his head
like... here she goes again

Two weekends ago I ran by a church garage sale
and saw this beauty...and I walked away!
Because do I really need another dresser?

However I just couldn't stop thinking
about this poor dresser
being all alone and not having a home.
It was in really rough shape...so I thought...well
maybe I can clean it up, paint it and resale it....
find it a good home where it will be loved!
I mean really...it was only $20.00...so no big risk right!?

Yep...it found a home alright...
in my living room!
And i'm not even going to paint it...
I cleaned it, waxed it and polished it up...
and I love it!

Can you believe I was thinking of painting it?
So glad I didn't!!
I just need to find replacement handles..
but even without them I love this piece!

Oh....and i've put the shelves back in the dining area
and stripped the paint off the top of the table

I bet sweet husband cringes every evening
when he goes to open the front door...
he probably never knows
what he will find!

Hope you all are having a great week...

Beautiful! So glad you went back to get the dresser! And that you resisted paint! That's a tough one! I was thinking as I read your post that I could have a dresser in almost every room. So useful and pretty!

I think your hubby's lucky to come home to such a beautiful home!
