Washstand Makeover for WW
I remember it like it was yesterday....My BBB (Best Brimfield Buddy:) Denise and I had walked all over the Brimfield Flea for hours. Picking up small treasures here & there. I loathe carrying large items around with me ~ little red wagons be damned! Anyway, we were on our way out ~ but "whats this?" still cash in my pocket ~ blasphemy!! I had spotted this rusty, once ivory tone beauty when I first walked in and commented on how pretty. If I had $$ on my return, I'd get it. And YEHAW ~ there she was. A little banged up but certainly no worse for the wear....(I'm holding back on the slightly off color jokes so easily placeable here).
Flash forward a few years ~ there she sits, alone, cold, not pretty anymore in my basement gathering cobwebs and more rust. Well, as he sometimes does, on not nearly enough occasions, Mr. Vintage, decided to surprise me. He gave her a complete body makeover, sandblasted, some welding and a fresh coat of eye blinding WHITE PAINT!!! Doesn't she just look great? Thanks honey :)
And they all lived Happily Ever After ~
I love a good party (isn't it obvious;)
