Roslyn’s Gone Thrifting Again

3E83Kf3Hd5G75E35Jad52e1f7456ec3731958Just had to share with y’all this chest of drawers I found on Craigslist for $35! Solid fiddleback and birdseye maple. Just stunning. All I had to do was buff it down with a little lemon oil and wipe down the insides with grapefruit essential oil (it’s antiviral and antibacterial). Here’s what’s absolutely crazy, it’s a dead ringer for the maple bedroom suite I got for $100 at Goodwill more than twenty years ago. I’ve stripped and refinished all the pieces except the bed, and it’s gorgeous. Some of y’all might remember the fabulous dresser I posted several years ago.

I love thrifting I really do. For one thing it appeals to my pocketbook, but I also like the idea of making use of something old instead of trashing things. This furniture is solid as a rock and will still be in good shape by the time Luke and Kell are ready for their own homes.

One thought on “Roslyn’s Gone Thrifting Again

  1. Love the chest. I have gotten some bargains no one believe I got from the thrift store. My entire house is furnished with tables,dressers, china cabinet,lamps etc. 165.00 dollars down to 59 cent.
    The 59cent item is actual a Waterford crystal vase.
    So happy thrifting.
