Back in December (yea, it's been that long) I wrote a quick post about a dresser I had found by the side of the road. It was gorgeous, like all discarded dressers that I find. But more importantly, someone had done All. The. Hard. Work. For. Me. A huuuge thanks to whoever decided that refinishing this dresser was just too much work and left it for me to find.
This is what it looked like the night I took it home. Pre-stripped and sanded, knobs and screws in a plastic bag inside one of the drawers. It was fate, I assure you.
It sat like this for a loooong time, waiting for a new home (we have ZERO room for it, or else I would have hoarded it for myself). But my mother-in-law graciously accepted it when I told her it was taking up space.
And guess what?? Tonight is garbage night and I've already staked out something good down the street :)
