So, we have this bedside drawer/table. I got it from Joanna’s grandparents house after her grandma died – they had an estate sale and let Jo’s friends come through afterwards and take whatever else we wanted.
I got this amazing lamp…it was an ugly orange and I spray painted and added a new shade and voila!
I also got an old school Oreck vacuum and a handful of books, including these…..
I have one more that I can’t find but the title is “Slick Willie: Why Bill Clinton was the Worst President in our History.” I don’t agree with that notion but thought the title was hilarious. So I took it.
So anyways, back to the bedside table/drawer.
I loved the look of it from the moment I saw it. Very Danish. I loved loved loved it. But it was a little dingy, banged up, and whatnot. Needed some love, if you will. So…one afternoon, Daniel & I went to Home Depot, argued discussed paint colors and went with a pretty deep chocolate-y brown from Behr. Behr has such great colors – can I get an Amen?
We are still working on remembering to take before and during pictures. Why are we so freaking bad at that? I think we forget we have a blog sometimes. We are so not as good as Young House Love or Thrifty Little Blog or The Yellow Front Door…..alas….but I am working on it. So anyways, this is what I remembered to take pictures of….
So, what do you think of our project? Have you found anything amazing at a garage sale, estate sale, or your friend’s grandma’s house? Do tell!
