New Project ~ Dressing Table

The phone literally just rang and it was my sister Kim calling me from yet another yard sale down in Pennsylvania. This time she found what the owners described as a 60 year old dressing table.
She sent me this photo from her blackberry.
Take a look...


What I love about this piece is the really nice detail in the woodwork.


Not to mention the beautiful hardware!


There is a slight repair to make at the bottom of the desk...looks like it might be a chip in the veneer, but that can be easily fixed.

Oh and the cost on this beauty...a whopping $15!!! Not bad for just sitting in my kitchen!

I plan to pick it up on Monday and spend the afternoon with my sister and the kids.

Looking forward to working on this piece...I am thinking maybe I will use my new chalk paint I got at the Haven Conference, but I've got to ponder that over for a few days cuz this piece will probably be the first one I try to sell!!!

  3. Good luck for your first piece. It's great coincidence that my name is Kim too (l0l). I was trying to redecorate my kitchen as well and bought a new white dressing tables to match my existing pieces.
