But spring is in the air, and that seems to correlate to the quantity, if not quality, of stuff to be found curbside.
Here is the dresser that 2 sweet 9 yr old girls helped me load into my car Friday night:
Great shape, but a distressing job-- handles and all-- that that was a bit...distressing.
Despite a carport work area beseiged by rain, blowing blossoms, and pollen, this is how she ended up:
First I primed her with Kilz using a small foam roller. Two coats of semi-gloss paint in a putty color from Lowe's "Ooops" shelf. Then I rubbed on finishing wax/paste. I primed and painted the drawer pulls in Heirloom white spray paint. Oh how I wish the photos did her justice, and that I had room for her in my house!
Total cost: $3.00
I love spring!
