Wack Wicker

You know how I whine a lot about never finding cool stuff at my local thrift stores?  Well, last week I went to Goodwill, and there before my eyes was a campaign style dresser and nightstand!  I couldn’t believe my luck; I never find that stuff!  

I scurried as quickly as I could to get a closer look, and only then did I realize that the pieces of crap were made out of rotting wicker!  Ugh!  I have never seen such a thing as wicker campaign furniture, and never hope to again.  I went home and wallowed in bitter disappointment.  Then I looked at this fabulous campaign dresser makeover from Katie at  Wildwood Creek and jealously shook my fists at the sky while weeping.

    I rarely find any great furniture pieces at our thrift stores either. Could be that I don’t get there the minute the store opens-that’s when the consignment store vultures come and snatch everything up in their greedy little claws.

    Awe, I hate crappy thrift stores that never have treasures. Ours sometimes have something great but the minute I walk up to it, I spot the “sold” sticker. This is a beautiful piece. Lucky girl!

    Love how the blue pulls out the blue in the stone floor and accentuates the pale blue of the walls! Way to go!
