Saturday Garage Sale

Two weeks ago on an early Saturday morning I was driving home and there it was a garage sale! I slowly drove by checking out the goods and of course something caught my eye, I casually walked up the driveway admiring my next piece and hoping it wasn't overpriced. I asked "what's the price on the mirror and dresser?" the sweet little lady said "$20." SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Now let's get to the before and the much better after.

Isn't she lovely!!! I'm keeping it. Do ya blame me?
Chalk paint goes a very long way, I've completed three projects with two coats of paint each and I have a little less than a half of can remaining.
Have a great day

  2. It looks so great with the stained top. Awesome job!

    And how do you have all that room for furniture?! Are you going to try to sell some soon? Not sure if you were already. As soon as you start finding pieces that you like more then your current stuff, the selling happens :).
