A couple weeks ago my sister and I were wandering around Value Village. While we were in the mens section and I was laughing at her love of weird old man sweaters (she’s so drop dead gorgeous that even gross second hand old man clothing looks great on her), I happened to glance at the nearby furniture section. My eyes landed on this handsome not-quite-real-wood chest of drawers…
And on the price tag… $9.99. Sold.
A little paint (somewhat greener and more subdued than intended- though the true colour doesn’t translate at all in these photos) later, and voila!
Not sure if it’s going to stay put or be moved to the spare room to replace the ugly, broken, hand-me-down that is currently residing there. If it does stay I’m thinking it needs a nice light reflecting mirror (perhaps I’ll go with the overdone uber trendy sunburst) hanging above it, and some better accessories.
And my poor sad chair needs a new fluffy white blanket to cover it’s boo-boos (the blue one is just a stand in, it clashes with the green of the pillows and dresser really badly). And of course I need to straighten the pictures in those frames. Etc, etc etc.
Hanging tightly to the Nester’s “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful theory. 🙂
But loving the super cheap and airy Lill curtains from Ikea. At 5.99 a pair they suit my budget just fine!
All photos taken on my iPhone, cause I’m lazy like that.
