Trashy Tuesday ~ Trash Picked Treasure


Hi Friends,

Way, way back in late 2010 I posted that I came across a huge pile of trash and pulled some treasures out of it.


One of those treasures being this wonderful antique beauty!

Look at the leaves in it! It really was trashy!

For 3 years it has sat in the basement waiting for the right moment to find it’s place in our home.
While dusting the bedroom a few weeks back I realized that it would be great in the bedroom to replace a really bad dated 70’s dresser.

So I bribed Mr. Primcat and a friend to carry that ugly laminated bad boy to the basement and bring that dresser/armoire thing upstairs to replace it.

After a LOT of scrubbing and oiling… TADA!

We love the tv up high too. Easier to see from the bed.

Carmen,
It's a perfect trashy treasure and looks great in the bedroom. I have to ask did you make the momma kitty and babies? I just love them!!!! And I'm just full of questions today so finally, is that a screen door in your bedroom to keep the Primcats oh of there?
