Super quick post today!

I just scored a gorgeous 1950’s steel dresser at the Charlotte ReStore. It has a couple of layers of paint on it… but I can’t wait to get to work on it! I’m thinking of going a different route than the industrial look… I’d like to paint it with a glossy automotive type finish. I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

Above pic is of a similar dresser online for $1800!


Death of a sweater

sweater deathI came across this sweater which is a really pretty color of red, which you might not be able to tell from the picture I took. I got it for a buck (!) at a store just down the street from my house. The sweater is from Old Navy, made of acrylic and will soon be torn down and turned into something for my sister-in-law, Bobby.

Her favorite color is red, so I think she’ll like the color.  You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a really good bright true red yarn that doesn’t have blue, orange, or burgundy tones. So this was a bargain and a great find!
