From a Damsel in Distress.....

She has turned into a real beauty!

I would love to have her in my own home, but we can't keep every 
incredible piece that comes along, I am sure she will go to a very good home!

I got this girl for a steal at a yard sale, because she needed some work...
...but I knew I was plenty capable of fixing her up!

I forgot to take a pic when she was right side up! 
She is one heavy girl... solid oak!

None of the hardware was original and I could tell she was 
once painted green and stripped down to what she is here.

She has some beautiful details.

One of her drawers didn't slide all the way in, so that needed to be sanded 
quite a bit and the two top drawers needed stoppers put in (not a big deal)!

She's primed! Ready for a pretty pale aqua paint job!

Here's the drawer before distressing...

Here it is after... I was loving how this piece was turning out!

I knew these doors would make the piece!

Here she is in all her glory!
