Sneak Peek at the Bargain Vintage Surprise

So, remember THIS piece?

Despite the Michigan cold I've only worked 3 days on and off on this dresser and I wanted to give you a sneak peek *smirk*

I washed it w/ TSP, sanded it, applied wood filler in some areas, but not all because I wanted a bit of that dinged up look (not distressed). I sanded it some more and skipped the priming. When I use Rustoleum I've found that I can skip the priming process or perhaps I'm just far to eager to get it done =)

It's a little large and I'm not sure if she'll stay where I've place her, but for now I'm absolutely in lub w/ this dresser turned buffet turned storage for all the "stuff" around my house =)

The clock is another GW find for .30 cents. It fits along w/ my clock craze. The lamp is the one I had in the dining room that I removed and moved on the dresser dresser turned buffet turned storage for all the "stuff" LOL

What do you think of the knobs? I'm leaning towards the round glass knobs that I used in the living room, see it HERE. They are Belwith Glass knobs, they feel so great on your fingertips and it's perfect for those teeny hands too.

It's simple, modern and sophisticated all at the same time and this is what it looks like on the piece... or I could go w/ a more traditional glass knob. It's a bit small for such a big piece don't you think?

So, what do you think so far? Ready for the reveal in a couple of days? I can't wait to hear what suggestions you'll have for me. You blogg-ettes have given me so much support in updating my space on a shoe string budget.

PS: don't you worry! I've already sanded out the drips =)


Thank you for visiting!!

Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey =)

Wow! Great job! I am sooo inspired and can't wait to find a "treasure" like this from my GW. With 2 little ones, it is essential to have a catch-all for all the stuff that seems to multiply! Thanks for the idea!
