A Little TLC in a Can

As promised here are a few photos of my little roadside
find after a little love.
As mentioned in a previous post, last week was spring
clean-up week and there were many
finds to be had at the side of the road.
I did a lot of giggling as I filled my van with three loads of
free potential!
I found this little sweetheart after my van was already filled to the brim,
so I did what any serious junker would do
- I took the drawers so no one else would scope it,
then came back for it later.

Armed with a can of Heirloom White spray paint,
and some minwax stain, and a few glass knobs she is
now transformed
and happy to no longer be tragically left by the side of the road.

Just a little love was all she needed!


  1. She looks like proper lady now, with her dainty glass knobs and slender painted legs. I love the clock, too... wiping drool from my mouth. lol.

  2. How sweet of you to give her a home...she looks great! Hope you have a FUN weekend:)

  3. What a great find! Its beautiful.

  4. THREE free finds?! i am green green GREEEEN with envy.

  5. I want to find something just like this to use as a bedside vanity in my master bedroom. She looks loverly!

  6. Brilliant! I love it. You have a great eye for potential and beauty. That's obvious from your kitchen makeovers and from this lovely piece. xoxo
