A Story to tell...

This dresser has a story. 
This dresser's story did not begin with me.
It had a life before...wish I knew its history.
Some cultures believe the spirit stays with a piece...
This spirit is sweet.
I met it in a barn...
top off
 burn marks
black rings
no handles
drawer slats off
A loss cause?
OH NO!
I had in mind a resue.
I had to do many a things...
attach top, saw out drawer front,
pull apart two drawers, reuse and
make shelf from said drawers to hold baskets,
paint, create new pulls, white wash baskets,

Why not add a key?
And on and on...
Now I love this little rescue and revamp.
LOVE.
How can I sell it at my next sale?
Someone else will love it too.
Onto my next rescue.
Create.
Something.
From.
Nothing.
Passion.

  7. I really like what you did with it. It's very rustic and really looks like it has a fabulous story to tell. That's what I love about antiques.
