A couple of weeks ago my sister and I packed the little ones and took a drive to a used furniture store all the way out in Wheaton, about 40 minutes from my house. I came to learn about Jubilee furniture from Apartment Therapy and so we paid them a visit.
I was in the market for a nightstand or a buffet and I found the former. It didn’t look like much when I brought it home but it had “good bones” so I rolled up my sleeves and refinished it. It took me about 2 naps (’cause that’s how we measure things now-in naps). The Anthro visit from last post was for a nice frilly knob and now I’m wondering if it looks too old lady-ish. I don’t know but why fight it? I’m sure the geriatric population needs new members anyway, right? 😉
Here is the before and after. What do you think? I was going for a more distressed look but I was too antsy to bring it inside so maybe I’ll add the distressed part later.
Also, I bought this print from Katie Daisy on Etsy (it looks like most her prints are gone by now) and the colors are so lively and playful! I love it! It will go in the bathroom when I can get my hands on the right shelf.
And for the record I like the bird chirping weather and not necessarily the birds chirping at my window at 5 am, mkay? Alright. What else? Oh, yes…posting will be sporadic for a little while. There are major projects happening here. I’ll fill you in later.
Have a great week-end.
