Those of you who are into "this furniture thing" (as my friends fondly refer to my obsession) have probably already had this experience. I was carting a king-sized headboard out of a Goodwill, and scraped the dickens out of my foot with a rusty old screw on the back of the piece.
The good news is that now I'm up to date on my vaccinations & I even got the combination shot with the pertussis booster. Yay me.
I do have one furniture upgrade to share. I rescued a lingerie chest from craigslist a few months ago. My dear friend W was kind enough to drive with me to claim it, in Dallas Ga. No offense to anyone who might live in Dallas Ga, I'm sure it's a wonderful place... but it is FAR from Dunwoody. I think it took us close to an hour, + the few minutes we spent lost.
Anyhow, here is the before & after of that piece (the original lingerie chest, labeled for sale on CL as "storage drawers")...
I'll be the first to admit that it wasn't a very remarkable transformation. The piece is super sturdy, had plenty of character, but most of all added some great storage for me at the right price.
However, when I came across this a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was time for an upgrade.
Again, not a very remarkable transformation. I won't even bore you with the details, as you know the drill. Sand, prime, sand, paint off white, sand, glaze with tobacco. Reassemble.
I'm about to crash for the evening with a migraine... vaccines always do that to me, I think it must be the preservatives. Did you know there is MSG in the flumist? I have an awful MSG allergy, so that really freaks me out. They sell MSG at the grocery store too, it's called Accent ~ have you ever seen it? My husband calls it a 'migraine in a bottle'.
Anyhow, I took these pictures of my garage, and in the interest of keeping it real, thought I would share (although it is probably the medications prompting me to share such awful pictures)!
Just so you can see what it is really like over here at A Few Good Pieces...
At least I know what I'm doing this weekend!
Again, the winner of the Give-Away is Guinevere ~ I don't have any contact information for you, so would you please shoot me an email so that we can jump into the fun of designing your custom magnetic board? I'm excited about it!
Good night, all
