My hubby brought home this piece of furniture last week, but honestly, we weren't sure what it was. It looked like something that perhaps at one time, went in a bathroom? At least that's what the medicine cabinet, pile of very old linens and old mirror suggested. Here's a look at it.
I removed all the hardware, and gave it a good coat of Kilz because it did have that "old" smell that I didn't want in our home. One coat took care of that. Next, I painted it Valspar Ultra White and then sanded the edges to distress it a bit.
I liked the original hardware, but wanted something a little different that would be more in keeping with things in our home, so, I made a trip to Lowe's and picked up some new drawer pulls. I did keep the original hinges on the little door. This lovely piece went in the dining room next to a chair that hubby also brought home.
I'm getting my shop ready for Christmas and so I've designed a few new bread boards to show you within the next week. I'm very excited about them and hope you will be too! Stay tuned!
Thinking about Christmas makes me want to decorate for Christmas and, therefore, start Christmas baking! Anyone else feel that way? I love love love making goodie baskets during the holidays for friends. Nothing eases holiday stress and anxiety for me better than doing something for someone else. And if you have a friend to spend the day baking with, well, that's even better! And so, I've got another giveaway planned! Check back soon for that, too!
