My Latest Antiquing Quest....


ooooh the thrill of finding just the right piece when you aren't even looking..... and in this case, it was an antique jewelers bench and matching stool.
sturdy (check)
distressed paint (check)
solid wood (check)
character (double check)

On the down side, I'm not able to use the drawer and my bench pin at the same time. darn. So I think I'll just hang the drawer on the wall above and attach some hooks inside to house my wire/tools etc.  Isn't she sweet!

My neighbor in Alaska has one I'm itching for her to sell me. I hope you make many wonderful projects on it.
