GARAGE SALE FIND ALERT!!!! That’s right kiddos! I found my next project. And here she is:
Oh isn’t she just GLORIOUS!!! I have seen this piece in SO many people’s houses just sitting in the dark corner wasting away. Cast out due to her 1970s panel style doors and hexagon shape. But to me, she is crying out for a makeover! I bought this gem for a whole $5. It was covered in spider eggs and most of the top had water damage from someone, I would assume, not using a coaster (grrrrrr….). Constructed of solid wood, she just need a little tlc and a lot of sanding……and bleach. A little bleach never hurts.
I am still on the hunt for the right color of blue for my kitchen chairs so I thought I’d try a sample of Valspar ‘Crystal Aqua’ 5006-78. It is more blue than green so be advised. Still a very lovely shade of blue.
After sanding, painting, sanding again, replacing with a glass door knob, and filling in the old drawer pull holes……….TADA!!!! She’s ready to shine again! I wish I had a place to put her. Unfortunately, the hubsters said we didn’t have room so I sold it on Craigslist. The girl I sold it to seemed to love it as much as I do. Glad I could save this piece and make someone else smile in the process 🙂
