Would You Buy it Wednesday

It's Thursday. 

I think. 

1st week back at school for the kids.  Mike 1st week of teaching.  First week of volleyball practice (every night).  First week of tackle football (every night).  First week of homework for 5 hours. First week of no supper (not a single night!). LAST week of class for Mike.

My head is spinning.

It's Thursday and I feel like this...



So I almost forgot Stephanie's Would You Buy it Wednesday.  But I didn't...

Obviously, I haven't been to an auction.  see above  So I dug through some old pix of previous items I've bought over the year.

At one auction I stumbled upon this...


Would you have bought it?

I did.  I took it home and gave it some love.  To make it look like this...

Very glad I bought it.  I think I paid $40.00 for it.  I sold it in my friends store a few short week's later. I now regret selling it.  It was a beautiful piece.

So, what did you buy this week?  Would you have bought this? 

Thanks for stoppin' by,

UM...YES! What a fabulous find! And I just love what you did to fix it up. I am so not surprised it was snatched up from your friend's store! :)

I definitely would have bought it! Although I am super cheap so I would have waffled a bit at $40. But I don't think I would sell it - would definitely be a keeper. I don't know what it is about things with a ton of little srawers - but I love them.

Gorgeous piece! Not sure I would have paid $40 for it just because I am cheap LOL!

I absolutely love this piece. I would have struggled paying $40 just because I have a hard time paying much money for anything, however, my love for wooden drawers would have had me pulling out my wallet. You did a great job restoring it.
