Shabby Chest Redo from Habitat Restore

I get a lot of goodies from the Habitat Restore. In fact, I was accumulating so many treasures and I loved the people there so much I decided to be a volunteer at my local Habitat Restore. I have to say it is just and enjoyable as I knew it would be. I find so much reward in volunteering my time for a good cause, interacting with amazing people, and getting out of the house to “hang out” at my favorite kind of place- a treasure store!
Needless to say, since volunteering my finds have only increased. And thanks to the great Leo, our manager, I am able to get great deals. Thanks Leo! 
Last weekend I saw this girl as soon as I walked in the gate buried under other “junk”. I inspected, did the wobble test, and opened drawers. I was in love! She looks a million years old but is still just as functional as the day she was built (they don’t make them like they used to)! There are even little wheels at the bottom of the legs- I love it! As usual, I stuck a big old sold tag on another piece of “junk” that resulted in some raised eyebrows.

When I got it in the house I had a hard time decided where it’s new home would be. I decided in the bedroom, which prompted an entire bedroom redo I will post more on later. I actually think this is an End of Bed Dresser after some research. I tried this at the end of our bed but ultimately decided on between two sitting chairs. 


My husband suggested using chalkboard paint on the top because I knew I wanted to leave most of the shabbiness, but honestly the top was too shabby even for me. Chalkboard is a go-to around here so that was the choice. In looking at the pictures I still like the top the way it was before too but in person it looked a lot worse. The rest is a great crackle finish that some may find “dirty” but I think looks perfectly loved.
