I was hoping today would be a sunny winter's day... no such luck. It is still grey and hazy, but I couldn't wait any longer to take a picture of my new favorite piece of furniture.
Here it is before, sitting a top my pile.
Like all my favorite finds it was only $15 (now that I think about it, that is kind of weird, right?). And while I kind of liked the original patina of the wood, there was some drawings on the top done by a little person not that long ago with a permanent marker, so it was destined to be painted.
I went with a light grey paint, distressed to show both the original wood as well as some white paint underneath for just the right amount of character.
Unfortunately during a recent furniture shuffle my beloved little birdie suffered an injury. But I will love him still, no matter how many pieces he is in.
This mirror replaces the black one that previous sat atop this dresser , it was from a very grainy 70's dresser. It looks and feels much fresher now!
