I lied.

I said I wasn't going to buy anything for this space and well, I broke down, I couldn't help myself and I bought something. But, it was all for a good cause aka a pretty, with lots of potential dresser that will totally have a home in our new home. It was for sale (at a very..very reasonable price) at one of my favorite stores for just the longest time. I always would look at it and touch it when I would go there, but at the time I just had no place for it in my house. 

This past weekend, Jack and I went to check out this lovely store (the owner gives kids old-fashioned candy sticks..tuti fruiti, ring a bell), so I could get my fix before moving away. Well, it just happens that this dresser was still there and I now have a place for it (for now...staging purposes, remember) in my house. Is this fate? I think so ladies! I snatched it right up. I think its pretty just the way it is, but I have other plans, big plans. It does need a little work on the inside to make it a bit more sturdy and one of the drawers is not sitting that also needs to be taken care of. So, anyway here she is....

How tacky...someone left the price tag on. Sorry, I was being lazy.


 And here is what I hope she becomes....

Wish me luck.
