When I posted the graphic Damask Dresser I redid for my very own bedroom, there was a huge response to the project. (Okay, okay! So the projector giveaway might have influence a handful of comments.)

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!
