Oh yeah, Sir St. Joseph was acquired via a Craigslist add, and I sent hubby on a roadtrip to go make the purchase. Oddly enough, it was yet another cat house where they asked him again if he wanted a cat to take with.
What is it with people ditchin' their cats??
Anyway, this is what we started with...
He needed some repairs, as he had some broken drawers and heavy dings, but he was well worth a tiny investment to buy from people who are moving and trying to unload their possessions for pennies.
two coats of Valspar Signature in grey,
some dry-brushing in white to heighten the paint,
...and a gentleman is transformed.
The hardware was left in its original state.
Each drawer featured a different set of antique pulls.
Really, he turned out handsome, dapper and charming.
He is ready to court a new lady.
His swivel mirror has just a tad of ghosting to it.
Oh yes, Sir St. Joseph is appreciative.
It sure feels good to be cleaned up and spiffy!
He will be partying this week at:
Motivational Monday at Three Mango Seeds
