My trip to Old Town

Before my trip yesterday into Wally World……

I was shopping for a chair for my desk upstairs, but did not find one…I did find this French Provincial 60’s/70 dresser.




It has good bones…so I bought it for 40 dollars. It is 381/2 inches tall. A perfect height for the new bedroom.

So I cleaned it, sanded it, did a little repair, took of the pulls and painted it a creamy white.






I thought about changing the Pulls, but they are aged so pretty… they got to stay. I am so fond of glass pulls and knobs, it took me awhile to make the choice.

So this is how I spent my Sunday. Arney is at work so he will come home to  my something old made new again project.

Have a great week…Hugs Mary

The old pulls look great...and so does the newly painted dresser. Your new room is coming together. Isn't it fun to take something old and make it "new" again!

Mary- That looks great. You did a nice job on it. It looks fresh and sweet and I love that you reused the original hardware. It looks lovely- xo Diana

Mary you made it so beautiful! Enjoy using it, and I too like the old pulls! Gives it character of it's time and age.
