Lucky find

I picked this piece up while out thrifting with my sister-in-law. You can be sure it made my weekend!
It's solid (even the drawers are tongue and grove oak construction), has sweet bamboo detailing that I just can't get enough of, and was the right price at $40.00.




So, you guessed right that it's already getting a makeover. Notice the missing hardware, the yucky drawer lining, and someone else's first attempt at painting?  It's all about to change! I can hardly wait to get started so that I can share the "after" pictures!

  2. What sweet deal on a great find. The first thing I check for when thrifting is dovetailing on drawers. (I rarely find that!)

  3. I love that! My friend and I were lucky to find the same dresser - only smaller. It was one of our favorite re-dos! You can read about it here: http://refinddesign.blogspot.com/2010/10/bamboo-dresser-for-sale.html

    Can't wait to see your outcome!
