During the warm spell we had here in Michigan in March, the Hubby & I were walking the dog in our neighborhood. We stumbled upon the best Roadside Treasure yet! I could hardly believe my eyes.....gasp....there wasn't a thing wrong with it!!! The neighbor was cleaning out her garage & said they just didn't need it, they had to many dressers, then she loaned us her dolley so we could get it home. Here is what it looked like:
It had so much potential. I could do a Union Jack, no... Maybe a silhouette white on black real big, no............. Gradient dark to light, no.......
After alot of pondering, googleing & surfing I just decided to paint it white & hope something would come to me.
So we prepped it for paint & gave it a couple of coats of DIY chalk paint in pure white. Now I had a blank canvas. This is what I came up with:
I just love its simplicity. I love to put numbers on my pieces & this fit perfectly. I like the way the drawers are framed in by the wood. That was a lucky mistake. We didn't realize the front inset part would show until we were finished painting & put the drawers back in. What a nice surprise & lucky too because we were out of paint! Here's another look at this beauty:
What a score!!!! I'm sure my neighbor would want it back if she seen it now. I have this Roadside Treasure in my booth at Collette's Vintage & Antique Mall in Burton, MI.
Have you scored a Roadside Treasure lately?? I would love to hear about it. Thanks for visiting & have a great week! ...... Dee
