anjou pear anyone?
remember my $5 dresser find on craigslist
that i painted yellow for the guest room?
i bet you didn't think i could beat that deal did ya?
well, on a total fluke...
{literally was driving by a yard sale + had a whim to stop in}
i spotted a lovely old, real wood dresser priced at $2.
+ i bought it {duh}.
painted it the prettiest shade of green
{anjou pear by valspar, martha stewart collection}.
+ now it happily resides in our bedroom.

{crystal candlesticks- thrifted, 25 cents ea.; stacked white/off-white books- already owned; starfish- fort myers beach; necklace tree- urban outfitters, $20; ring dish- etsy seller lgbrinkley, $14; antique mirror- thrifted + painted white, $4; painted original handles white; replaced handles on top drawer with glass knobs}.
