Look what I found at a garage sale a few weeks ago! A solid wood Bassett dresser for $15--I almost felt guilty for convincing them to take $13 for it.
It is so heavy--definitely a lot of wood! I've started sanding it down--it needs a LOT of sanding--and eventually will be painting it black. I'm going to use it as a sofa table in my family room and can't wait to have the extra storage as well as a place to put a lamp. I already bought new silver colored knobs for it.
That's just drawer liner on the inside, but it's pretty cute and matched the knobs the previous owner put on the dresser. I'll be changing the liner out too though. The drawers glide beautifully!
I'm so pleased with this find. I've been stalking Craigslist for months looking for a dresser or table for this spot and haven't had any luck at all. At one point I found a black dresser for $75, but when I showed up at the woman's house, I about keeled over from all the cigarette smoke in there--I was relieved when I found a hole in one of the drawers because there was NO WAY I could have bought that dresser!
I never go garage saling, but opted to go out one Saturday morning a few weeks ago--and found the perfect item at a fantastic price. We need more storage, so this is perfect!
