Well, this entryway has been a long time in the making. Back in January I started thinking about how I could dress up my entryway. I finally made this addition in June by hanging my family silhouette.
A couple weeks ago I found this dresser at a thrift store (Salvation Army). I think it’s from the 70’s, but it has a fun mid century feel to it. It’s made by Broyhill and actually has dovetailing on all the drawers. The top is covered in white laminate, which I’m not sure how I feel about yet. It was priced at $75 and I was just not willing to spend that much on it. So, I came back a week later and it had been reduced to $56 dollars. Salvation Army discounts there stuff every couple weeks to make room for more items. I still wanted to pay less and I knew that if I held out the would drop the price to 50% off. I was willing to take the risk, I didn’t think anyone else would see the potential it had, at least I hoped they wouldn’t. So yesterday when I went in it was priced at $37, cha-ching! It’s mine.
I originally thought I wanted a table with a couple shelves for display and something that combined industrial metal and wood. But, pieces like that a hard to come by and they are pricey. The more I thought about it, the more I felt like extra storage was the way to go.
My plan in to paint part of the piece, either the drawer faces or the sides and legs. I will share my finished product when I’m done. I think there is some potential here folks, does anybody else see some possibilities?
