Ooh La La



Here are some pictures of my newer thrift finds. The first two pictures are before and after of a small chest I found this week I sanded it down, painted it black (every room could use a black piece right?), then found some Fleur Di Lis drawer pulls that I painted a silver color, distressed the edges a bit and ooh la la I love it now! The last picture is another chest that I found at my favorite thrift store that I cleaned and painted black, then distressed it. It smelled soooo bad, it came from a chain smokers house no doubt. I used a half a bottle of Febreeze on it. Now I put it in my family room and love it. It was supposed to go to my Queen of Hearts booth, but it won't be going any time soon.

What great treasure! You can also try setting a small bowl of vinegar in the drawers to get rid of odors.
