Do I have great luck, or what??!
It started out like any other Wednesday evening. Went to weekly pottery class, made some awesome stuff (post on that up next!) and was driving home when, what to my surprise, I see not ONE but TWO dressers sitting out by the side of the road.
Alas, though, I was in the Bug....cuter than the dickens, but just not suitable for dresser stashing. So I rushed to the store to by milk (the errand I was running when said dressers were spotted) and came in the house shouting "I found dressers by the side of the road. Let's GO!"
God bless him, he tries to put on a good face, but deep down inside he sees himself on an episode of Hoarders one day.
Anywho...there was only one that I really wanted, so we get in the truck, drive to the house, load 'er up, and head on home.
Note: Not only do I bring a flashlight with me, but I hustle around like someone is going to come up and try to steal it from me if I don't hurry up and get it in the truck. Also, I feel somewhat dangerous - like a thief in the night or something :)
It's as we are putting it in the garage that I realize we grabbed the drawers for the OTHER dresser....drat.
So back in the truck I go (and to the curb the other drawers go - though I SO wish I had a use for them!) and load up the actual drawers.
Now this is the exciting part......
Someone put all the drawer knobs in a plastic bag for me! They knew I was coming :)
And wait....there's more!
It's like the dresser gods were smiling down saying "If you put it by the side of the road, she will come." Such nice people to get it all ready for me to come in and make it spectacular.
Wait, you want to see the actual dresser?? Good call......
