Broken to Beautiful!!

So today, I tackled a serpentine dresser that I have been avoiding.  Why?  Because it was all busted up and in rough shape.  It needed fixing, was falling apart, and I didn't really understand why I even bought it.  (i'm impulsive when it comes to furniture!)

I took off for the weekend and went to my sister's.  Lots of laughter and lots of relaxation.  (I needed both, and never seem to laugh as hard as I do when I'm with her!)  I came home yesterday to a dresser with primer and stain on it.  Polyeurethane was brushed on until it shined! The sides were all rebuilt and it was waiting to be painted! I could not WAIT to get to it this morning!  My hubby had tightened it up and made it more pretty than I ever thought it could be.  I painted it today and I love it! In my opinion, it would make a lovely vanity in a large bathroom.  Or a statement piece in a living area.  If my mom had her way, it would already be in a shipping crate on its way to Arizona to take residence in her bathroom! 

After waxing it this evening, I stood back and looked at it.  Really looked at it.  This beautiful piece of furniture was once left out in the rain under a tarp and not valued for what it COULD be.  I am so glad that my hubby saw the potential in it! I am usually the one who sees what something could be....but was pleasantly suprised by his vision!  I love it.  I truly do.  

So, whoever purchases this beautiful piece of vintage furniture, will be getting something that had a lot of love poured into it.  A lot of elbow grease and a lot of time.  

I think it's one of the nicest pieces I have ever done, without doing the whole thing :)  Thank you to my hubby, John! I appreciate him  more than he knows <3
