A Ta Da Dump Find

This is a chest that is about 12-14 inches tall.

All dove tale joints and a drawer on the bottom

The brass plate on the top is missing a few bumps and bruises. 

The inside is lined with a chamois material. It is oak or maple all wood
great chest. So this is the before after husband finishes with it I will show you.
This was found today at our dump.

This was a dump find also. This is the after!
It looks great and will look great around our fire pit.
and all it cost was paint and a few nails to fix up.
Husband made this from drawers that was taken from my aunts
kitchen and the door were salvage he bought. 

Crown molding on the top this is a very pretty green kind of like a gray green.
He is getting ready to sell this I am sure it will go fast.

 Prayers for the Boston fire fighters that lost their
lives this past week. But for the grace of God go I.
While David doesn't go in the buildings anymore he still
answers the calls, runs the trucks, and anything else that needs to be done.
Have a great week everyone.

You sure do have great luck finding good items. Must be the time of day you go there so don't let the word go out on what time it is.

I love old wooden boxes--especially ones that are dented and show their age. I would have grabbed this up in a New York minute!!

The dump is amazing but the "redos" are too! I love the green of the chair and the cabinet. I'm thinking of spray painting a wicker piece green and getting new cushions..maybe if it looks good I'll post it this summer...if we ever get summer!
