One thing that I really enjoy doing is finding something old and disgarded and giving it a new "life". I'm not really sure why I am so drawn to "old" things or things that need to be spruced up but I am. Truly I would rather take something old and make it new agian then go out and buy something that's brand new with no history or character. Here is a chest that I recently found in someone's trash - I just couldn't leave it there I knew it could be something special. These are the before, during and after pictures. I have to give credit to my husband who helped me by rebuilding a couple of the drawers that were in need of repair. In the first picture you may have noticed that the chest had doors at the bottom - they were very warped so I decided instead of asking my husband to build new ones I would just make this a neat place for some pretty storage baskets I am so happy with the way it turned out. What do you think?
