I threw the money on the counter and ran to grab the nearest marker to tag it "sold" before anyone else could snatch up my deal of the century!
I fell in love with those curves!
and those adorable little legs!!
But that color ... awful, terrible -
very 70's and NOT in a good way.
(is there a good kind of "70"s? not sure!)
Once I got it home, I realized that it was all SOLID wood and had dovetailed drawers!
I sanded it down ...
I just used sandpaper & lots of elbow grease ... no fancy machine for me. :(
Not yet anyways.
Pretty please Santa?
Then I primed it - two coats.
Goodbye Vomit Green.
Then I painted it - Valspar's Thomas Jefferson White.
I used their prime & paint in one, just for extra coverage.
I wasn't diggin' the all white (I forgot to take a picture!),
and I was feeling a little bold -
so I went with a turquoise sample I had in the garage!!!
A little retro, huh?
Oh look at those sexy curves ...
