Look What I Got....

Now is that bad grammar?  Look what I got? 
Look what I found?  Look what I've got? 

Symantics I say! I did get some cool new furniture
this last week.  Three pieces to be exact and here are
two (don't have a pic yet of the third). 

I call this one the "hutch of my dreams"....because it is
exactly what I have been looking for....something with
good enough bones to keep but not so good that it would
be a crime to paint.  This baby fits the bill and will look
fabulous in my dining room!  Can't you see
 her all white and distressed?

This picture is little because it came from the
Craigslist ad and I couldn't blow it up .  But what
is it you ask?  It's an old stereo cabinet with the
old stereo still in it!  Yeah!  Mr. Biff is an avid vinyl
collector so what better way to marry two hobbies?  We
will be painting this one as well as it is a little dinged here
and there.  The guts are all there - even a replacement
stylus for the turntable......I can hear Abba calling me....
"Take a chance on me, honey I'm still free"
(and it was! free that is!)

The last piece is a coffee table - it was also free as in
"found at the curb".  It's a little rough and needs some TLC.
No picture but I'll be sure and take a before - BEFORE
I start to paint.....

Hope you all had a great weekend,

p.s. I added two new buttons but they aren't working - one for email and
one to put my linky parties in.....stay tuned it's a work in progress!
