Handsome Holiday Flip

Hey, sweet friends! Welcome! I've missed connecting with you all here, but you know...life! I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that you're enjoying this time of year at a pace that feels right. I know that's different for us all but as I'm getting a wee bit older every year I'm learning that what I choose to take on doesn't have to be the status quo. This season with all of our children in school for the first time still feels fresh and new and I've found that the adrenaline I used to have to get things done in a pinch while juggling our brood of multiples has leveled out a bit. Still, I wrestle with that desire for busy-ness and the Lord has been teaching me quite a bit about Himself in the constant ebb and flow.

One of my joys that's carried over into this new season of life continues to involve thrifting and flipping furniture finds! Today I've got a handsome flip I finished recently - an unexpected score from an unexpected thrift stop. Those finds are my favorite. I never seem to find what I'm looking for, but I always find what I'm not looking for. (I got your line, song writers).

He's a dapper tallboy, isn't he! He started off an orange-y stain which really wasn't doing his brass pulls justice. And we just can't resist good brass around here! I wanted to create a bit of contrast against the brass with a crisp white coat of paint, but left his base wood. White + wood + brass has been my favorite refinishing combo these past few years; it's a timeless classic especially if you want to maintain the integrity of an older piece.

He was also a bit petite when I found him since he didn't have any legs to stand on. Thanks to a set of tapered legs my dear Cate had on hand and graciously gave me for this project, he has a bit more presence now. Tell miss Cate 'thank you', my handsome boy!

I'm really enjoying seeing the versatility of tallboys lately! In a smaller home or apartment these work beautifully as a bar, buffet and storage piece in a dining room. They don't take up a large footprint so they're fun to move around and play with here and there. :)
