Anyway, as I was saying (or hadn't I gotten that far?) these two pieces, from two different locations, but on the same junk jaunt...then, as though it was always meant to be, the symbolic lightbulb suddenly shines above us...something only a "junker's eye" can see...a match made in heaven!
With a price, as you can see!! Scrubbing, scrubbing, repairing, scrubbing, lather, rinse, repeat.
But how sweet now sitting in my kitchen, in all her CHIPPY glory!!!
A warm touch of paint on the inside, and some burlap too!!
Here she is decked out for Christmas. (okay, I'll admit it...haven't quite gotten all the holiday goods put away yet!) But soon I'll freshen up with new goods and I seriously can't wait to add a touch of spring in there!!
Now, here's the fun part. I want to share. There are some wonderful linky parties out there and here are a couple of my favorites.
SNS #28 ...FABULOUS!!
Bec4 at Beyond the Picket Fence is just getting started with a linky for projects under $100. Those are the best ones, and would you believe this dresser/hutch project was dern near free!!
Miss Mustard Seed is one of my faves for sure. Some great stuff gets linky'd here for Furniture Feature Friday.
Kimba at A Soft Place to Land has the most awesome linky DIY party ever...with hundreds of links!!
Funky Junk Interiors have the bestest of the best Saturday Night Special with projects that range from...well, everything to everything!!
Okay, just one more! Just Between Naps on the Porch is FABULOUS! They host a linky for Metamorphisis Monday and it is most certianly worth checking out. There's even an awesome tassle giveaway...and not just any tassle...unique tassels from The Tassel House.
