Last Yard Sale of the Year

Ok, I am showing you the mess first.
And for all those little thumbnail pics that come up,
yes, this is the BEFORE pic.

Moving Sale
I found this chest.
$20
The drawers move in and out easily.
Perfect for the
Aforementioned Mess.
But really rough and dirty.
So I scrubbed.
and
painted.

Way too bright!
WAY, WAY
too bright!

So, I found more paint....

And made more of a mess.


And then drybrushed white all over it.


Still not exactly what I was after,
but
January is coming
and I'll have more time,
But for now...
Semi-organization.

What a find and clever you! My sewing things are in baskets...no room for more furniture. I'm thinking shelves on the walls to hold the baskets...You make me want to organize.
