In our op shop tripping today to find some costumes for the girls for guides we pulled up to the Salvos at Nerang and found this sideboard. I literally held my breath while I waited for Richard to stop the car - I couldn't see any sold sign on it and I couldn't see the price either. I ran over and couldn't believe my luck - $10!!!! and no sold sign.
I said ohh It's ours- quick go speak to the ladies.
Richards like - what the? I thought we were looking for costumes.
Bless my two though they were quick to chime in
Sof said Dadda you never know what lucky find you will have
Tals said - you just have to go with a happy heart and you will get awesome.
and I'm but it's so beautiful and its $10!
and so it was and now it's all mine.
The lovely ladies were all gushing over it - They said it had only just arrived and they were worried what they would do with it if it wasn't sold today as the truck doesn't come until Monday and they had no room. They think its from the 1960s It's solid wood and needs a lovely sanding back and a new stain . The back left hand leg is wiggly woggly and will need to be fixed as well. Other than that so good :)
I excitedly rang my DIY know everything friend and begged his help next weekend for my very first lesson in fixing up. I'm imagining a trip to Bunnings and the chance to play with power tools.
SO SO SO looking forward to it. Don't you just love the retro handles?? The drawers are the perfect size. Some shallow and some deep. Ideal for crafty goodies.
