Grey and White Antique Dresser


Sometimes a piece of furniture comes along and in a blink it is gone! Like my blue and white dresser.
and….That is what happened with this one.

Kinda…

Although I had it for almost a year totally painted and ready to go, I simply forgot about it.

I know, crazy girl!

I mean I knew it was there but other pieces were bought and painted and sold while this lonely little thing sat in storage.

A grey and white antique dresser waiting patiently to be in someone's home!

It all started like this! So pretty and that wood….don’t get me started!

I just fell in love.

So last year I painted it a pretty grey and white and took it to the Barn Sale. Everyone loved it but the ones that wanted it didn't have a way to haul it.

So in the truck it went and to the storage unit it was stored. Until I went to Haven.

What does Haven have to do with it?

Well I knew I wouldn't have time to get a piece to the store, so I rummaged through the storage unit and found this pretty baby!

Sitting all alone….

Who knew?

Who knew that it would take one day…

Yes you heard me, one day to sell her.

Could it be she felt neglected?

I feel bad.

All in all she was good to me.

And whoever has her now, has a beauty!

and I will think of her while I am in Italy drinking wine and spending the money I made from her!

My favorite color combo! Isn't it weird how some pieces sell the same day you bring them in and other pieces...that you love....just sit? I wish I knew the magic formula.
