If you’re following me on instagram, then you already got a glimpse of this yesterday as I was finishing up!
So- I was telling you about the family I’m helping
to sell off all the furniture and decor that they couldn’t take with them to their new senior apt ~or that their family (kids) didn’t want.
Many things were inherited from her grandmother, Ottilia Catherine, who was born on April 1st—the same day we move into the antique mall! Think she’ll be watching over everything?
This was a very petit dresser from the very early 1900’s. In today’s living, it would be more of a nightstand (to give you a better idea of scale). It’s made from a really soft, mellow pine.
The reflex answer was to strip the top and REpaint.
And then you see I went in a little bit different direction.
Yes~ I decoupaged another poster! But did you notice that clearance price! AND I ditched the plastic knobs (2 were missing anyway) to 100yr old glass knobs!
