I love pieces of furniture with a good story.
THIS one has a story and she's heard her fair share of them too. Before I tell you why, let me show you what she looked like before...
We picked her up at a garage sale a few months ago and I fell in love with her 5 cute little drawers. She's tall and slender, unique and plain. The lady was happy to tell me what it was made for. Her and her sister had a beauty shop together years ago and they had a handyman make them a rolling cart for all their perm, hair, and color supplies. (ahhh...the smell of a perm) He made it out of a speaker box! How clever! I can't imagine all the gossip she heard being rolled around a beauty shop. I loved her size and took her home for a "makeover." (corny pun free of charge)
I stripped her down and stained just the top a dark walnut. I painted the rest of her a creamy white and then applied an antique glaze. She had her knobs replaced during the makeover and it gave her a new fresh look. She's ready for her big reveal and a new home.
Her dimensions are 15 wide (at base), 12 deep, and 33 tall.
A great conversation piece - $70
