Look at my "find"!

chest

I found this pretty little chest/armoirre at the Goodwill
in Tulsa!  $50 bucks and it was mine!
(our dining room is not LEMON yellow -
don't know why it photographs that way)

blackpaint
I had actually planned to paint it black
then give it a light sanding on the edges. . .
(I love that finish)

oldenglish
However,
after a little of this,
I decided it should
keep it's original wood tone.

Sooooo, I don't get to show you my
crafty refinishing skills...

Photobucket
but I do get to tell you how
happy I am
that all our homeschool books/papers are hidden
away in my "find".

Yea for you! Sometimes things just aren't meant to be painted.

Cute find! I gotta tell you-from here it looks Taxi-Cab yellow! lol I don't know why but I have some rooms that the color in photos doesn't look anything like it does in real life. Must be the lighting or something. Great little storage unit for $50! Diana
