But, I didn't. I drove right past the vintage shop and turned around and yes, I went in the shop. Lo and behold, this is what I walked out with. Never mind that I haven't even started on
the vintage chaise or the wonderful crate! But tell me, would you have left this in the store? Now comes the question.....do I leave it as is or shall I paint? I'm thinking I'll use in the lanai. It's a pretty sturdy piece and vintage for sure. I would say 40s or 50s. I think it looks good as is, but wanted to get some opinions. Thanks.

The furniture has a thin layer of varnish. I know it is thin because my daughter spilled nail polish on it and when I wiped it off the varnish and the color came off the drawer. I want to do it in a matte white/cream. Any suggestions? Thanks
I'm an avid thrifter. I go out about 3 times a week in search of the gem among the rubble. I've been looking for a dresser for a while now and on my 3rd jaunt to one of my favorite Thrift
Stores last week I found this antique dresser, all wood, and dovetailed. The only flaws were the "dents" the employee said. If he only new......The roughness of the piece adds character. I took it home got immediate color inspiration from a flowered water color like print from a new throw pillow. I decided on doing two tones on the dresser and am thrilled how it all turned out.
1. Miniwax Water-Based Wood Stain in Green Tea
2. Pantone Paint in the color Nude with a Satin finish
3. Knobs- Hobby Lobby 50% off.
