Oh the possibilities of it all . . . . .

Some people just aren't able to see "possibilities" in vintage furniture. This 1940's dresser was a dingy brown before I white washed the entire piece. The dresser can be utilized as a dresser (with the complementing rectangle mirror) or as a foyer table, behind-the-sofa table, kitchen desk--the possibilities are endless.

The photo below is the same "dresser" in the shop window at On The Square Antiques, Troy, AL ($98 for the dresser, $24 for the mirror, or $105 for the set) Home delivery is available in some areas.

Another "possibility" presented itself to me in this small 3-drawer chest-of-drawers--it was covered in ugly brown paint; but with some sanding and scraping it transformed into a great piece. Again, the first photo shows the finished piece and the second photo shows it transformed into a wonderful home accessory--possibily a great foyer statement! Chest and mirror are available at On The Square Antiques Troy, AL (Priced separately: chest $42 and mirror $24)
