I just love stories like this....

My husband and I were driving home Sunday afternoon. We passed a neighborhood I hadn't noticed before and decided to drive through just to have a look around.

We drove by right when a man was putting these 2 lovelies at the curb for trash pick-up. I saw them and of course yelled for BLT to stop the truck. After a
nice conversation of "are you getting rid of those?", "yes, we are", "can I have them?", "sure, I'll help you load them!" They are mine now and I love them.

We're going to keep their rehab very simple.

The storage is great and the lines are so pretty. My mom has already called dibs on the wardrobe and I'm keeping the dresser. My husband wanted to sell them but I'm going to have to owe him one and sell something else later.

The dresser came with this:

I'm playing around with putting the mirror on the mantle..I'll have to doll it up a little but I think I like it. BLT isn't completely sold on this idea, so we'll have to see. SO glad we bought that truck!


  1. Dang, I was totally going to call dibs on the wardrobe. :) haha! Good find! Can't wait to see what you do with them. :)

  2. WOWW!! These are beautiful. They look like pottery barn destressed.

  3. It doesn't get any better than FREE!!! Great job on repurposing!! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. I can't wait for the new look. I'm thinking a burnished red?
