I think everyone who likes to junk and thrift has one of these at some point or another, but this one really got me down. Knowing that I need good sources of inexpensive furniture for upcycling, I’ve been exploring the area’s thrift stores and consignment shops. Last weekend I hit the local Salvation Army and found a few pieces worth considering. But what really caught my eye was this awesome mid-century modern chest of drawers.
It was only $60 but it was $60 I didn’t have that day. I did a little quick online research on my iPhone and I was pretty sure I could get a lot more for it, but I had to walk away. Sure enough, it was gone a few days later and then I saw a similar piece selling for $550.
I hate it when that happens.
I probably wouldn’t paint a mid-century piece unless it was in pretty bad shape. But I have seen great examples from folks who have. I’m thinking of featuring some of them in this blog. Maybe a mid-century Monday?
