I am so excited to introduce you to a lovely new piece that I picked up at my favorite second-hand store “Lost and Found”. I have a little vested interest because that’s where Anne’s Attic – design is set up.
It sure is hard to make any money when I end up doing a trade with my sales. lol (Smile) But that is okay because I have had a great need for the item that I am showing you today.
About a month ago I redecorated my granddaughters room and I gave them my sweet little antique dresser. So I was in need of something a little more adult size with more drawer space. I fell in love with this beautiful dresser with its tilting mirror and lots of drawer space.
I was told that it was owned by one of the old police chiefs here in Bountiful Utah. I looked at it more carefully when I got it home and it looked like at one time it might have been in a fire, which shows how a chief of police might have ended up with it. As I was wiping it down I was coming up with lots of black on my rag, and the back had some surface burns on it. Plus with some good authority my son the fireman said that was what had happened. The owners said that it dated around the turn of the century of the 1800’s. So I got a very nice piece with a lot of history.
Usually if I am uncertain about changing something on a piece I will let it sit and wait for that stroke of inspiration to hit. So far it hasn’t hit and I am quite pleased with the color in my bedroom, which I was for sure that I wouldn’t like.
What do you think? Should I paint it white or leave it?
In the pictures above I painted one of my sets of louvered doors a chippy pink. I thought this little corner would be fun to use to photograph items. Nothing like a little chippy pink to get my inspiration going. Plus it’s great to use for any backdrop. The book Wild Roses is a romantic novel written in the early 1900’s. This book was givien to my father from his parents for Christmas one year, it has some writing on the inside from them so it is special to me. I really can’t imagine giving my boys a romantic novel for any kind of occasion. lol I’m pretty sure that they would have thought I wanted them to get married and leave the house. lol I read the book in high school and shared it with many of my friends.
As you can see above I am infusing more florals into my life. I just thought I would share with you this sweet floral top with a lacy skirt and scarf. Now I just need some place to wear it. (IDEA STRIKES)
