Awesome bargain...help me!
I just found this gem at one of our Goodwill stores today. Let me tell you, the vultures were circling with this one! I practically had a lady follow me throughout the store and a gentleman was complimenting how well-made it was. I paid $14.99 for this baby. It is a Drexel nightstand and in perfect condition. I am always all over bloggy land looking at all the DIY furniture makeovers and am astonished and jealous of the outcomes. This is the first piece that I've really found that I want to redo. Here's the dilemma: what should I do???? It already has a fabulous look to it, but how could I make it more fabulous??? I like the cottage look and shabby chic, but I also like high Victorian. One style I am not particularly fond of is modern so traditional would best suit me. If you have any suggestions or links, I would be utterly grateful!
Here's the furniture stamp inside the drawer.
I am also not hung up on it being strictly for the bedroom. I think canning jars full of jam would look absolutely quaint. I have no idea what to do with this piece, but I'm excited for the possibilities. I'll keep you posted!!!
