You Gotta Give A Little

Remember when I told you about getting a bunch of furniture from my old boss’s late mother’s estate? That’s where I got my coffee table and that pretty little round table from.
Farmhouse Dresser
Well, I had also gotten an old farmhouse dresser from him that I had planned on refinishing. I got it into my garage, though, and I was just too overwhelmed. It was a much bigger task than I felt like undertaking, so my old boss gave me his blessing to pass it along to a better home.

So I listed it for free in the antiques section of Craig’s List, and this sweet soon-to-be new mama called me asking about it.  I made sure to tell her that it was a huge job, but she was totally up for the task, and the project was underway. 

I had kind of forgotten about the whole thing until yesterday when she emailed me pictures of the finished product.  I was blown away with what she did with this dresser. 

It’s one thing to see “before” pictures online, but I saw this before in person, and it was rough.  The drawers felt like they would fall apart if a gust of wind came by.  So when I saw the finished project I was just so impressed.   

So I asked her if I could blog about it, but she said that she had been wanting to start her own blog, so low and behold she up and started one this weekend!  It’s super cute, and I am seriously excited about the projects that she’s going to blog about.  She has totally got the DIY touch, and I think I’m going to learn a thing or two about refinishing furniture from her!

If that wasn’t a teaser, I don’t know what is!!!  Nope, I’m not going to show you the after.

And do this almost new mama a favor and follow her!  How many times do you get the chance to follow a blog from the very beginning!   

OH, and I almost forgot!  The reason for my title is because if my old boss or I had held onto that dresser, it would have never found the loving home that it did.  Here's to not hoarding!!!!
