after only three (3!!!) attempts, it's finally mine!
the photos aren't turning out so well as i don't have the best lighting, but it really is beautiful...to me, anyway. it's got such a lovely patina with the original green paint chipped and scratched in places, showing off the steel beneath. it does have a few surface rust spots, but that only makes me love it more!
it ended up being more than i expected it would be, but $11 isn't really breaking the bank for me.
right now it's hanging out with the other office furniture (quite well, i might add!). i put stationery supplies in one drawer, and some of Vintage Modern Boy's computer games in the other.
but other plans, grander ones, await it. someday. i just don't know what they are yet, though silver metallic paint keeps flashing in my mind. but i really do like it as is. hmmm.
how about you?
what would you use it for?
would you paint it?
(ok, not really in a quandary, for i am so very happy to have it!)
thanks, by the way, for all your sweet encouraging comments. so sorry you have mostly all had to experience this thing before! ugh. i guess there is a downside to the thrift store that i love so much...
