I Heart Curb Alerts

SO shabby , so much potential

I was working on a longer post about how we took two rooms that were open to one another and made them into separate and functional rooms.  BUT... I saw a curb alert on craigslist last night that I had to have.  It's such a rush every time I pick up a great piece of furniture for FREE.  Here's a sneak preview of this sweet little antique dresser.  Hubby and I started working our magic on it today, so two DIY posts will be coming soon.  Thanks to all who are reading my blog in its infancy.  I am so grateful for your interest, your encouraging comments and your support!

The top is a veneer, the rest looks like solid mahogany.
3 layers of paint to remove

Isn't she cute?


  1. Great piece, Jen! You gotta love "free"! : ) Lots of potential here.

    1. Thank you, Kathy! I've switched to WordPress since this post and you can actually see the finished product in this post on my new site. I hope you'll check it out!

  2. Gorgeous piece - love the scalloping at the bottom edge. I look forward to your post! I'm just working on a dresser myself but not nearly as nice as that.
