vintage find...

My friend Stacy and I went to an auction about a month ago and I scored this sweet little dresser for $15! [Of course, this wasn't the only thing I bought at that auction much to my husband's chagrin :D]

It originally had metal casters with wood wheels but two of the wheels were gone so Mr Dill cut off the casters. I gave it a good scrub down and put felt underneath the legs and it is now located in my entryway. It's added the pop of color I needed there... the walls are a dark red and at first I thought 'No way does the aqua match the dark red' until I remembered the lovely painting I purchased from Mariette @ Petit Bijou Art Shop. The painting really tied the whole room together!
