"Goodwill Hunting"

     I've been living out my dream for the past couple of days, because all I've been doing is visiting some of my favorite thrift stores. (Thank goodness for Christmas break)

     Today, was especially exciting because I found this dresser at a Goodwill store. As I wondered to the back of the store by the furniture I knew this was a great find (and even better price) the moment I saw it. Those curvy exposed front legs, and rounded corner with all those nooks and crannies make this "find" an excellent candidate for a beautiful paint job!

    My only dilemmas now are what room will I place it and what color? White or perhaps a robin egg blue? Regardless, it'll make ideal credenza to house napkins, extra flatware, tablecloths and other entertaining needs. Or it would be beautiful in the entry way paired with one of the large ornate white mirrors I've restored. Perhaps I may stick to my original plan to place in my daughters bedroom that we are re-doing soon.

     Wherever, I choose to put it, this Goodwill find was definitely worth the hunt! I hope that you'll check back to see the "after" pictures.

     Until then, happy treasure hunting!

  1. Oh wow,
    I love your new dresser!!
    Everyone always seems to find the best treasures at their Goodwill store. Mine, not so much!!
    I can't wait to see it once it's all painted.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend and Happy New Year!

  2. Thank you Melinda. This is my first time every finding a "big" item at a Goodwill store. This one is located about 1 hour from my home. That's what I love about thrifting you never know what you might find! I can't wait to start and show you the finished project.
