Re Purposing.

We've had a lot of fun over the last few years hunting for treasures to fill our new house. Some have been absolutely perfect and some have needed some "tweaking" to make them perfect. And some have come to us as donations from others. We have an old radio just like the one above, without the interior components. When it was given to us, my first thought was to turn it in to a book case. My dh's first thought was to chop it in to firewood! He collects old radios but had no interest in one that didn't have the "guts" inside. But guess who won? Yup, I did. And then when we were out shopping one afternoon, we stopped in at the Antique Mall and look what we came across .... this very lovely re purposed old radio unit, chalk painted a soft white. I love the look and hope we can make this work. Now he's all interested in seeing what we can do with the "freebie" we received. A new project to work on together, now that we're both on the same page. 

Have you been gifted furniture that you've re purposed?
Would you paint over an old piece of furniture?

It's so pretty, and I love the color of the paint you have used !
My daughter has a similar piece, no guts inside either, she uses it as her safe :)
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day dear friend, sleet and cold here.....

That's a great idea to use it as a safe. I haven't yet decided what we'll do but love the look! X Chy
