A Couple of ‘Before’s without After’s’

I rarely post before pictures without the after pictures, but I have to show you a couple of great weekend finds.
Mr. Charming and I went out for our weekly ‘scouting outing’ Friday night.  While scouring the Thrift stores for furniture, we spotted this little lovely. As we pulled up and saw this cabinet in their front window, I heard myself say out loud “I WANT THAT”.  It really was my day, when I told the shopkeeper I’d take it, she informed me that it was 25% off.

A little further back in the store sat the only other piece of furniture they had, this long dresser. Needless to say, that came home with me too.

Right now, I’m working on one of these pieces.   Here is a little snippet of the finish.  Stay tuned to see which piece got this treatment!
