A Wee Free One

I have been looking for a little dresser to tuck away in J's closet.  I needed some extra storage for all those little things that girls need.  Like headbands, bows, tights, all that good stuff.

I spotted this little piece at the end of someone's driveway.  I did a slow drive by and it looked pretty good.  However, the house owner was sitting on the front porch.  Hmmm, I didn't feel like curbside shopping with an audience but I then thought "what the heck?" so I turned around and stopped.

Up close I could see there was a "free" sign but I still asked the man if he was giving it away, just in case.  It was more than a little awkward loading it up while this guy watched me mess around with taking out the carseats.  It was a good thing I was without the kids so I could flip down my backseat to fit it in.

The top drawer was a little wonky
but a new guide was all it needed to
straighten it out.    I picked up a new at 
Home Depot for a couple bucks.

I switched out the middle handles for these fun butterfly knobs I found at Michaels and used up some more the Benjamin Moore, Waterfall that I used on  J's other dresser.  Although that paint is still not gone so look forward to ANOTHER aqua paint job sometime in the future.

So here she is, saved from her life on the streets.  
Just like in Pretty Woman!

I wish I found dressers on the street EVERY day!!!
