I bought this two drawer dresser type piece at a garage sale last summer for 2.00. Even though it is small it weighs a ton. My poor husband and son had to load it for me. We just happened to be out walking after a parade and I stumbled upon it just sitting there calling to me. I even told my husband I would make his favorite dinner if he would load it up for me and even ride in the back seat with it in my Rendezvous. I had the car packed that day because it was my Mother's birthday and I always try to take a meal and a cake up to her, she is about an hour and half away from me and just had knee surgery so I was the hostess and it takes a lot of stuff to be the hostess where I come from! So needless to say I had to wedge the dresser in and I was determined to do it and I did!
I decided to include this old tote box in this post just because it was sitting on the postcard dresser. It was just an old box I stained black and I also made the wooden sides to hold the handle which is a lightly painted pink chair spindle. I love vintage and love taking it and re-purposing it even more! All in a day's work I faced my fears and came out alright.
