Thrift Store Score

I know I promised details of our trip but this flu is still kicking my butt. This is day four. Lord help me. Thoughts of this little beauty make me feel better though...

I found it in a thrift store in Bluffton, SC. Turns out two of my sisters are into thrifting too so we went on a bonding roadtrip from Savannah to Bluffton on a tip from Tracy and Jeff...

Mind you I had contacted some furniture dealers who find pieces and re-do them. One I contacted who shall remain nameless found one, not even as nice as this, and wanted to charge me $300. For just the dresser. That didn't even include the paint. Can you say rip-off? I got mine for $59. SCORE! 

I'm thinking of painting it a peacock blue...

to look like this

or this

and putting it in the entry under my peacock mirror. Hmmm????

  1. Loooooooooove it! Can't wait to see it painted! What I love most is the story of how it made it home! I'll go junkin' with you girls anytime! FYI- Next time . . . We take my van!
