I heart this!!!

I found this lovely antique dress form today, it has chipy white paint and I was told it is over 100 years old.

More garage sale redo's

I found this neat old chest at a yard sale for $5.  I was so excited I thought it had so much character.  It was missing the lid but it had a secret storage box inside and two drawers underneath.

Cottage chic

More before and after pictures from my weekends yard sale finds.  This cute little dresser I loved because the people had already paid for someone to strip it and then they didn't even like it (saved me the hard work).  Plus it has it's original glass handles.

 note the all wood key holes

Sometimes $3 yard sale furniture is just that... I was nervous about this one it looked like a feral raccoon was living in it but I think it turned out ok for a cute mid-century modern night stand.
