Garage Sale Find

$1.00 Garage Sale Find!
This lil' lady had a rough life - I am sure she was much loved and needed some TLC to brighten her up.  I often wonder if furniture could talk, what would it say... What may have been in that drawer - a love note?  a Bible filled with the greatest love story ever told? crayons, pencils, magazines, a child's most treasured possession?
 A good coat of primer to get her ready, then most of her got a 'watermelon' paint job - except for her drawer.  The treasure drawer a place for love notes, secrets and childhood treasures!  Check out the after!
She is ready to be loved and treasured once again - I even kept the original drawer pull with its lingering stories of little hands who would have pulled on that knob open laughter, smiles, treasures galore!
