I always get excited when I see something I just love.
Saturday was no exception.
I was passing a yard sale with car full of girls when I made the quick turn around. Chest of drawers, nice. Black, I like black. Bamboo details and nice lines, I like very much. I just had to get out to inspect.
As I got out of the car I thought the piece would be priced much more and the draws would be made of cardboard. I was wrong on both accounts. I was very happily wrong. I mean 5.00 that’s right down my alley. SOLD!
A chest with bamboo details and the cost 5.00. Yes, I was confused. Why? The construction is excellent and the piece is heavy. I couldn’t find anything wrong with it. It does have a strange white top but nothing a little paint can’t cure. It did and still does however have the smell of old lady perfume. That will need to go. That could have what dictated the price…I don’t know, I’m just saying, maybe.
Of course getting the chest into the car was very much the challenge especially with five girls but I was not leaving without it. My day was made when I got the chest home. I don’t know about you but there is nothing like a five dollar chest to make my day brighter.
I pass this woman’s home all of the time and she always has something different outside her house at her weekend yard sales. I have gotten some great deals in the past, but Saturday was the best.
So loving the drawer pulls and have the perfect spray paint color to use. As for the color of the chest not sure. I like the black but I’m feeling more like a brighter color. I noticed I pinned this chest used in a foyer twice so I must really like the color.
I can’t wait to get started on it. I’ll share when I’m finished.
Have a great day.
