My eyes are always searching for that next "fixer-upper". Recently, we were at an auction that was full of them! (A separate post on my "junk pile" coming soon!).
I spotted this little sweetheart beforehand, and when it came up for bid, I leaned over to my hubby and said to him that I KNOW it doesn't have doors, but I want it anyway. I did get it, and it took a little bit of time to convince him it will be o.k. I think he was more afraid that I was going to ask him to build me some doors.
Structurally, it was in really good shape. The only thing I needed to do besides clean it down a bit, was fill in the screw holes from where the doors were. Just a little wood filler and some sanding.
After a couple of coats of a custom creamy white paint on the outside and my favorite "Blue Haze" on the inside of the cubby and drawers, she was quickly transformed! I had the perfect pulls in my stash that added the final touch.
My husband came home during the "photo shoot" and said that he actually gets it now! That's when I know it's a job well done!
This will be available at the Lucketts Spring Market next month!
