Hi all...how's it going?
I have to admit I love second hand furniture, always have. In fact a lot of our furniture here at Number 10 is "pre-loved". Over the years I've searched high and low through old second hand furniture shops and op-shops to see what they had. I've bought cabinets, dressers, cupboards and drawers and given them a new life.
Well this weekend, I didn't have to look any further than my own street.
Our neighbours across the road have been having a big renovation done and have also been having a clean out of old bits and pieces they no longer want or need.
On Saturday afternoon, I noticed they'd left this chest of drawers and an old wardrobe on the nature strip...so I snaffled them up, with some help from the kids next door.
As you can see, the chest of drawers are in need of some major TLC. They're very heavy and sturdy so I plan to give them a good clean and a sand and paint them in a lovely "off-white" colour, then put some nice new knobs on them.
The old wardrobe, which is a bit hard to see here lying on its side, will also be given a clean and a good sand. It also needs the legs to be reinforced because they're a bit wobbly.
