Would You Buy It?

I love Wednesdays, because I get to see everyones' crazy thrift store purchases over at Junker Newbie! I had several questionable interesting finds this week at my local Savers. One of my faves is this fabulously 80's country beauty that I picked up for $5. It is handmade and has all kinds of disgusting kitchen "gunk" on it, as if it sat thisclose to the stove for years and years and years...

How about that heart wreath? Makes me think of lace curtains and mauve silk flowers with little faux raindrops on them.

I do like the divided storage inside. :)

I think my husband is actually coming around...when I brought this piece into the house to work on yesterday, he actually said, "I know you'll be able to turn that into something great!" I usually get something more along the lines of "What the ...?".

So would you have bought this?

Nice husband comment.
Useful shape, I suspect paint in its future (and minus the what is left of the heart too.

I definitely would buy it. Just have to get rid of the heart. Cool find.

Thank you for visiting my post. Your husband sounds like your biggest fan. What are you planing to do with your box? I can't turn down a box.

I think I would have bought it too. The heart is easy to get rid of :-) What will you do with it?

Definitely would've bought it - great find! I gravitate towards wood stuff because it makes the best (and easiest) tranformations :)
