My Favorite Vintage Find … Ever

53777657-4555-46f6-88c4-1374389e035fOh, my goodness. I bought a vintage piece of furniture last week that is my absolute favorite furniture purchase. And that’s pretty crazy because I have bought a lot of vintage things in the past thirty years.

It was WAY over my budget and there was no way I could spend that amount on an old chippy piece of furniture. But … I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So I reached out to all of my friends that sell chippy furniture and I asked first if they had anything like this. I also asked what a reasonable price would be for the counter. Unfortunately, no one had anything like this. But I did get a much clearer understanding of the price range, which was definitely in my budget.
