~ Hello, and Happy Friday!! ~
Remember that great little dresser I found at an estate sale last week?
It still needs some TLC (ok, it needs to be refinished), but it's going to have to wait until the kitchen project and new floors are done and in.
Meanwhile, I styled it with some things I had already around the house, and applied numbers that I found a few weeks ago at the Habitat Re-Store for 50 cents each.
Instead of using nails or glue to affix the numbers, I just used earthquake putty. It is also known as museum clay, but I live in Cali, so it's earthquake putty here!
Since I need to refinish it, I was looking for a way to put the numbers on temporarily, but, I think I will put them back on with the putty after I've re-finished the piece, in anticipation that I may get sick of them one day and want them gone.
I was trying to figure out what to put underneath the dresser, if anything...
I decided that the vintage Syroco plates looked to random and weird.
Then I remembered that I had a fabulous old picnic basket that was a birthday gift years ago from some wonderful friends.
It is such a cool set. The basket contains an old kettle and warmer, a round canister, and a square metal container for food.
Isn't that just the cutest picnic basket? It could have it's own post. Possibly even win the "Most Beautiful Old Picnic Basket" pageant. Don't you think?
Dont' tell her that, though! Next think you know, she'll want the sash and crown, and there's just not room under there! ;-)
So that's what I wound up with for now. I will be refinishing it as soon as everything else dies down here a bit!
Have a fabulous weekend!
