A Fab Goodwill Find
I just love Goodwill, don't you?? I joke around that its my home away from home!! I especially love it when someone takes a perfectly good, vintage chest of drawers to Goodwill for me to find. One little secret(not a secret really) is if you see a piece of furniture there is to take the tag off of it and carry it with you. She who has the tag gets the goods. Learned that lesson the hard way when I missed out on a child's rocking chair. I had it in my cart, asked one of the workers the price, and another worker took it from her saying that someone else had the tag for it. Boo hoo...
But, seriously, look at this beauty. Even Heaven above was shining down on it!! $49. I love this piece. Several people were checking her out, but I had the tag!! Learned my lesson. It has a bow front-not sure if you can tell or not. I was wanting a chest for the foyer in the house we don't have yet. Can you just imagine the decorating possibilities?? Ok, I need help in deciding what color to paint her. My original thought was either antique white or black. I don't think I really want to paint her black. Another thought was sage green or blue. Have y'all seen the November issue of Country Home?? It has some great blue painted furniture and kitchen cabinets. Making me want something blue. Bring on the advice!!
