Road Side Treasure

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Last Saturday evening, Dane (dear husband) and I were on our way to dinner with his parents when something caught my eye. It was a free armoire on the side of the road! Now one thing about me is that I love big, old, classic furniture. I love anything shabby chic, and I always have a list of d.i.y. projects for my home that I want to get around to. So, needless to say, this find totally made my week!

It will need some new hardware and paint, but I love the detailing on the doors. I haven't decided where exactly I want to put it, but I think I will most likely be keeping it. Maybe if I get good enough at it, I'll start scouting for cheap pieces to re-do and sell, but for now anything I find is something I want to keep!

The new armoire is going to have to be on the bottom of the list for now though, because I still have one that I bought last summer at a yard sale for $10. It has a little bit of a different look on the outside, but they are both very similar on the inside. This one currently houses my mess of scrapbooking and gift wrapping supplies.

One idea I have is to take out the shelves inside of one of them, add a rod, and use it to hang baby clothes! But we'll just have to wait and see if that ever happens. For now though, I'll just focus on picking out colors and re-finishing them as they are. Hopefully I can get them done by the end of the year! Wish me luck!
