I don’t usually have very good luck on Dollar Thursday at Goodwill. I’ll pick up a little somethin’ here, a little somethin’ there, but never anything extraordinary. But last week, my thrifty little friends, the discount-shopping gods smiled upon me and I picked up a two-drawer chest (NEVER had a dollar day furniture find!) AND an awesome lamp for 2 singles! So I did a little dance of penny-pinchin’ joy, loaded them up, and took them home to work on. I’m still working on the lamp, but I finished the little chest of drawers this morning.
It is a solidly built little sucker, and HEAVY. The stamp on the inside says that it was from a Marriot. It had some holes drilled in the top, presumably from the TV swivel thingy. I filled the holes, but decided that a painted finish on the top surface would still show where the holes were.
Mod Podge to the rescue! I got a roll of damask wrapping paper from Hob Lob for $4.99, and used but a smidgen of the 50 square feet for this project. Lots left to craft another day!
I painted the body a satin black, and hit those wonderfully ornate pulls with some semi-gloss white. Just perfect to tie into the damask! Isn’t she purdy?!?! Not too bad for a buck!
Can’t wait to show you my funky lamp!
