My new Ebay purchase


For a while now, I've wanted a dresser. Once when I was away, my husband bought a flat packed pine apothecary style chest of drawers for the dining room. It was a waste of money, the drawer fronts keep falling off and it looks ugly! So I decided to buy a solid pine dresser on Ebay and I would paint it, surely much better than what we have already. Last night I won this little beauty and I may not even have to paint it. All for a bargainous £30!
I collect it on Friday so will show you it in situ and nicely dressed in another post.

That's a great buy!
Thanks for visiting my blog - hope you enjoy blogging too - you've made a great start! It's so nice to hear of people who like vintage things as most of the people I know are more modern in taste.
