Small Dresser Makeover

I picked up this little dresser from one of our online estate auctions for about $12 (it was being sold with a vintage metal stool).  I thought it would be a good fit for my work room (which has gotten out of control with clutter the last few months). My work space consists of two… Continue reading Small Dresser Makeover

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Independence Day!  This week’s edition of Tuesday’s Treasures is looking at some of the items we have purchased at auction.  We buy a lot of estate lots through online auctions and then pick them up a few days after the auction ends.  I really like buying this way… Continue reading Tuesday’s Treasures #17

This little enamelware stacked food… Continue reading Tuesday’s Treasures #14

No Upholstery Needed Bench Make-Over

You may remember this adorable vanity bench in a previous Tuesday’s Treasures post.  I just loved the bird’s eye maple wood and couldn’t bring myself to paint it.  There were specks of paint all over it, so I lightly sanded it with a fine 220 sanding sponge and then put a coat of clear Briwax… Continue reading No Upholstery Needed Bench Make-Over
