A Vintage Piece from the Auction!

Hi Bloggerettes!  This is what I got at the Auction.  A depression era vanity dresser that was already shabbied and ready to go.  I just love it!

No painting required....gotta love that!

It fits perfectly in my booth....

I hope someone else loves it as much as I do.

Be sure and stop by Debra's blog to see what's new.

I love the lacey whatever that's hanging over the back of the chair - it's so ruffly and pretty!

Nancy said...

Woot! Great find! You do a lot of makeovers, so it's nice to find a treasure all ready to go. I'm sure someone will love it, too.


Cindy said...

It does fit perfectly in your booth! I love the soft color of it, that color would look pretty anywhere.

Such a pretty vanity, I have one in my daughters room from the same era and we have had it in our family for almost twenty years and two children.... Thanks for stopping by my place. I am looking for the post about questions for etsy artisians. If I don't find it feel free to email me with any questions you have!!

Oh Sissie, what a treasure, we never find anything that doesn't need to be painted or upholstered. I am guessing it will be a quick seller!

The vanity does fit perfectly in your booth, but would fit even MORE perfectly in my bedroom! I'm sure you won't have that's wonderful!

Hi Sissie,
Love the dressing table. All ready to go, how fun is that?! I saw one today and passed it up. Now seeing yours makes me want it even more! (Hope it's still there tomorrow.) I know yours will go quickly, too.

Marydon said...

Marvelous find! Love the way you present it also, Sissie. You have such an elegant touch in displaying your treasures.

Sissie, The vanity is wonderful and even better that it didn't need painting. Love the white chair cover and the crochet piece.

There is definately an added bonus when you do not have to paint a new piece, especially if it is for the booth. Great new piece, I am sure you will not have to hold on to it for long.
