I love buying much better quality
second hand pieces for much less than
what it would cost for new ones of
the same quality and sometimes
We have had this little dresser for years
and it is solid wood, maybe maple. I paid $150.00
for it. Todd cut a little bit off the
legs to make the same height as
the other dresser which
is the best height as a night stand for our bed.
and this maple one which I found on Kijiji for $20.00.
We removed the kick
and I thought I was going to get him to
make it look like this but I have
changed my mind and decided to
go with a similar look to the other
I removed these pretty glass knobs off the darker dresser
and may use glass again if I don't find my dream
clear glass lamps.
Great solid wood dovetailed drawers on one
and wood drawers notch construction on the
other is much better than any pressboard/mdf
and everything got a coat of latex Bin 123 primer yesterday.
and while I was busy doing that Todd got a coat
of primer on the side stair built-ins, SWEET!
and today is another grey day, calling for freezing rain. I've got
a busy day planned with more painting and groceries and maybe if
the weather permits a drop down to Mom and Dad's for a quick visit.
So if you are thinking you need a new piece of furniture and
are going to hit Ikea, Walmart etc, why don't you check out the classifieds or
craigslist to see what second hand beauties you can find and
transform to make your own.
if the sun is shining where you are
send'er my way please!
Have a great day
