Curvy Girl’s Rule
I finally found my curvy girl that I have been looking for!!! I have searched for years looking for the perfect piece to refinish for my buffet and finally after stopping on a whim at a church garage sale I found her.
She isn’t much but she has great bones. She was curvy and real wood but I wanted her to be a little less expensive since she was pretty beat up. I just wasn’t sure I wanted to put any effort in to her, so although I thought she was nice I left her standing there.
All night I couldn’t stop thinking about her, kicking myself for not picking her up!! What is wrong with me? She has great bones, she is 9 drawers just like I wanted, why on earth didn’t I bring her home? She wasn’t even all that expensive, and need I remind you she is real wood!
So you would think I got up the next morning and ran to get her. Nope, I left her hanging, I was playing hard to get. I forced myself to stay home and clean my house and leave it up to fate.
Were we meant to be together???
You bet your sweet bippy as my Grandmother would say! I am so glad I looked beyond her imperfections, and brought her home. She is just gorgeous with her makeover. I painted her with white chalk paint and sanded the top down because someone had tattooed her with Amy hearts B. Not that I don’t appreciate Amy’s love but it just didn’t go with my whole décor. I was going to paint the whole thing white but after sanding the top down and seeing how gorgeous the wood was I stained the top with ebony stain and three coats of poly.
Want to guess how much I paid for her?
Yep, $30.00 and a little sweat equity and I am the proud owner of curvy gorgeous girl!
