Can you imagine these two beauties being put out with the trash?
Last week I showed you this cute little blue accent table that I picked up in my neighborhood the night before bulk trash pickup day.
Okay, so this one needed a little work.
And a little foot repair!
Remember it from this pile? ... See anything else good?
One of our reader's asked if I also got the drawers. Well, I did way better than that. Seriously, there was absolutely nothing wrong with this furniture. It was just a little, well you know, brown!
But now it's absolutely beautiful in creamy white, Megan's color pick!
A light distressing to bring out the details ...
a shelf and a drawer for storage ...
awesome retro hardware ...
and cute little feet!
And just look at this big, beautiful dresser!
I mixed up some homemade chalk paint with Sherwin Williams Antique White (the old formula).
I love the fluting on the sides.
And talk about storage!
The hardware got just enough Rub n Buff in antique gold to make it shine. But I'm always careful not to make it too new looking. The idea is to embrace the vintage charm!
Don't these pulls look like little graduation caps? Sure they do!
Yes, I really love the little feet!
So there you have it, more curbside goodness! Isn't it just amazing what people throw away? ..... Now before you come raiding my neighborhood, you should know that these finds don't happen all that often. Usually bulk trash consists of smelly mattresses, broken patio furniture and just plain junk. But every once in a while you get lucky. In this case, really lucky! And your heart goes pitter-patter! ... Plus it helps make up for all the furniture that you pay way too much for, but of course can't live without!
Hope you all have a great weekend! Mine includes steamed crabs, barbequed ribs, homemade peach ice cream, a little croquet and my very favorite people! ... And I'll be back to post our August Garden Party! See you later!
