Another Vintage Scale!!!

I was at a friend's house a few days ago and saw this scale sitting on her table.  She was just getting ready to go to a show on the weekend and was going to take this scale to sell in her booth.  I absolutley loved everything about it and bought it from her.  I have never seen one like this before.  I love the patina, the wood top, the lettering on the side.....everything.  It is large too.  And for $40 I couldn't pass it up.

It resides on the "new" dresser I added to the living room. It really compliments and helps break up all the white.  A friend was at my house last night and spied it sitting there.  She asked if it was for sale.  I told her this was a keeper for me.  My collection of scales is now at four!!!

A Beachy Dresser Redo

I purchased this dresser off Craigslist for $40.  It looked good in the picture below but the finish was pretty rough but it is a solid very heavy piece.  I sanded, primed, and painted it white.  Then I heavily distressed it and dry brushed it with a light grey color. I sprayed the handles oil-rubbed-bronze.

I love the beachy coastal vibe she gives off.  This one sold right away!

Two Matching Beauties

I picked up this set of two antique dressers on Craigslist.  The white paint had yellowed and paint was peeling.  I sanded them and gave them a coat of primer and bright white paint.

They are both keepers!!!! 
I dry brushed the shorter one with a light grey color and added glass knobs (I need to get one more).

It replaced this small table in the living room.  I love this table and this look but I needed storage.  The girls and I have mountains of piano books and sheet music that was piled on the floor next to the piano.

The taller dresser I left bright white and swaped with another dresser in my daughters room. It holds more clothes and is cuter that the one that she used to have. I'm loving both of these new pieces.
