Curb Alert II

As you may recall, in a previous post way back a month ago I found this "lovely" item sitting by the curb. Here is the little story of its transformation:

Before it was several colors with dirt and probably some flaky lead paint.

Sanded and ready to go with a coat of paint on one drawer. It was free paint I picked up from the Eco Store and I obviously enjoy free things.

Another gross side view.

Tada! A clean, very bright green set of drawers!

Cammie helps me model the new drawer liner.

Hopefully it will help me organize my spare closet a little and eliminate the stack of small boxes where what I need always seems to be at the bottom.


  1. Looks good. Finding great things on the curb is a great feeling! :)

  2. Thanks! It is a rush to find something nifty and useful for free. One of these times my husband will agree :o)
