Company was coming and I was on a mission to free up some extra closet and drawer space in the guest rooms. The upstairs guest room got a major redo last summer, going from dark brown walls to light walls and new white bedding too; it looks so much better now.
When redoing this room I had planned on reupholstering the vanity stool, but I forgot about it. We don't use this room unless company is coming and when cleaning the house it would briefly come to mind again, but I would move on to the next room to clean. I guess it was a case of out of sight, out of mind.
Here's a glimpse of how the guest room looked before:
It is really hard for me to believe there are only 12 days until Thanksgiving
To me it feels as if it should still be August.
Not because of the weather. It is chilly here and almost all of the leaves have fallen from the trees. It's because this year has flown by faster than any other year that I can remember. Does it feel this way to you?
So glad you are here!
Enjoy this week's features...
It was a long, long time ago when I found her; an old dresser abandoned by the roadside.
The drawer fronts were not attached to the drawers and leaning against one side.
The old mirror and frame that holds it in place were dismantled and leaning on the other side.
She was old, broken and dirty...the perfect curbside find.
The mister reattached the drawer fronts to the drawers and after a good cleaning she was used for storage in a spare room at our old house. Jumping ahead a number of years and after moving to our current home, the base of the dresser was used on the screened porch for a while and for the last couple of years it has been stored in the garage.
As I shared in my Guest Room Sneak Peek, I was searching the attic, garage and all my stashes to pull this room together with little to no cost. This dresser came to mind and as I pulled her from the garage, seeing the condition it was in, I had my doubts about ever using it again.
