For my birthday from my ma, I got a great piece of loot. When the sisters and I got started with our business, Ethel Edith, we had a few things in mind like spending time together, fixing up furniture, and rotating new pieces into our homes to replace things we liked but didn't love. This is one piece I didn't love. He is cute, don't get me wrong. I have a vanity that matches it, and they will be great in a little girls room. But for my room, eh.
I saw a great yellow dresser in a store uptown a couple weeks ago. I've been think about him. He wasn't too expensive at plus he has fantastic old paint. I loved him. Then mom told me she was gonna get him for my birthday and I was pumped! The lady that owned him cut me a sweet deal and took even more money off, so I claimed him for my own.

Now was my little dilemma. I took out a turqouis dresser and put in the chippy yellow dresser...my bedroom furniture looks terrible together! This was the side table on my side of the bed.
I knew what I had to do. Last year at Third Sunday Market I found another gem. I live by the motto, if you love it, buy it! As long as you love the things in your house, you can figure out a way to make them work together. So, even though my current furiture didn't go with it, I bought what has become my new bedside table. I would now like to introduce her to the world...
Oh my she's a beauty! She's ready for her close up.
Old crystal pulls how I love you! The best thing is, I get to pass on my dresser and side table to someone else now and they get to love them for awhile and I'm officially back on the hunt. I need a large dresser now. I will know him/her when I see it then my bedroom will be complete. Wish me luck at the markets!
