So Out Dated

Everything is outdated on my blog. I can't remember the last time I even looked at my blog. Sad. So much has happened, good and bad, but mostly good, since the last time I wrote. I don't even know if any body will notice that I'm back.

I miss taking pictures to post. I miss re-reading our family events. And honestly, I miss the comments.

So what is worthy of my first post in a year and a half? I guess it would be this out of date, yet charming dresser. I found it garage sale shopping a month ago with my sister n law, Cheryl. Addie needed a dresser. I wasn't sure if she would like it. It's really old but in good condition with all the drawers in tact and working. More than I can say about her IKEA dresser. Two fellow garage sale shoppers wanted it too. But I was there first. My lucky day. Usually, I drive up just in time to see what wonderful deal I missed. No, not this time.

The ladies told me that it was probably from the 20's. The drawer pulls are real groovy, that's the only word I could think of to describe them.

The amazing Addie began the make over yesterday. She took off the old drawer pulls and started up the sander. As I looked them over I wondered if they were worth anything. After 30 minutes researching the web to my surprise this outdated dressers is more than charming, it's a waterfall art deco piece that is worth a lot more than the $40 I paid. Stop the sander!

Too late. It's going to have to settle for just charming now, all sanded, getting primed, and soon to be painted white. No body will ever be able to see that art deco waterfall.

I still have the groovy drawer pulls though. The going rate is almost $7 a piece. I'm going to have to look up selling things on eBay. In the mean time though, I'll be sanding, priming and painting over my blog. I'm hoping to get my charm back.
