I got this little beauty from one of our local Peddler’s Malls for a mere $5.00. It is our newest location, and it is still a little sparse. There are not a lot of walls built yet, so you can see from one aisle to the next. I was a couple of aisles over when I saw a man and his teen sons juggling this baby around. The booth spaces are 8×10, and their booth was already quite full. When I walked up to their booth area, they were putting this on a flatbed dolly. I asked “is this yours” and the man said in a very frustrated tone, “Yes, it is reduced to $5.00, but I’m getting ready to take it back home.” I tried to hide my giddiness, and said “I’ll take it”. I almost felt guilty for getting it so cheap. If you are a follower, then you probably know I usually have a $5.00 limit, so it was indeed my lucky day!
That light piece there on the center left is where a piece of the veneer has come off, but the man had it in the drawer. I usually like to re-do dressers into desks, but this vanity is not a good candidate for that, because you can’t get your legs under it. About a week after I got this, I saw a waterfall stool for $12.00. I didn’t get it though, because it was over my limit. I went back a few days later to get it, and it was gone! Oh well!
You can see that the veneer is a little rough. I may do this to it. Right now it sits in storage until I decide exactly what I want to do with it. Do you have any thoughts? Suggestions? I would love to hear from you. What would you do with it? You would have picked it up too, wouldn’t you?
