Recently i was looking at craigslist with my mom and found this beautiful old sideboard!!! It was only 45. i almost fell off the couch and was instantly in love. Not only do i love old junk....but i love a deal and this goes in our house perfectly.
It has all sorts of beautiful old details that are just perfect. It is dinged, chipped and worn but those are the things i love about it!
I plan on using it in the dining room to hold my sewing stuff. Then i will be rid of the big ironing board and replace it with a table top board that i can put on it and use it when i need it or store it away. Next step is to hunt down a old table to replace the plastic folding table that i now sew on.
While we were there i asked her if she had any other old pieces that she was selling that she might want to show me. That is when i was shown this old dresser. I was excited. It is about time that Avery got a new piece of furniture to hold her clothes instead of her old baby dresser. I plan on refinishing this to make it look like this sideboard at A familiar path blog. I have been dying to do a piece of furniture in turquoise!
