Yeah, that's never me.
Usually I go to the thrift store and find aisles of junky particleboard bookshelves and weird overpriced coffee tables.
That is, till this beauty showed up on a quick trip to Deseret Industries. I fell in love, and I even had a vague idea what to use it for.
I tried to remember how to choose a "good" piece of furniture. Drawers open and close? Real wood? Quality workmanship? Check. For $10 she was mine.
I grabbed a paint sample from Lowes in Perfect Storm by Valspar that I've had forever and sanded lightly before I went to town on that thing.
You could change out the hardware, but I actually really liked this handle so it stayed.
Now when we use the claw foot tub in the downstairs bath there is a place to actually put down the shampoo, if we're so inclined. And it adds the perfect pop of color.
