2nd Time Around: Seeing the Potential in a Thrifty Piece

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

Sometimes I need a break from all the bargain shopping I do for my Etsy store and my booths. This weekend I took one…but not out of choice. I woke up Saturday thinking I would go to a few sales, but went straight back to bed with a stomach virus! I had picked Cooper up from the baby sitter early one day because he was sick, and seems that I got attacked by the same bug! But, I really didn’t need to buy anything anyway!

So, I don’t have any of my own things to share, but would like to share this chiffarobe that one of the vendors redid as a display case. My beautician offered this piece to me, but it had doors with peeling veneer, and I told her that I would sell it for her. She got rid of the old doors, and painted the inside green with red outside! I think it looks great, and offered to buy it for display! Looks great in her booth displaying vintage linens!

It’s funny how one person can see the potential in something that others miss!

Thanks for stopping by, and please consider linking your 2nd Time Around project or find below.

I just love how creative people are! Who'd a thunk that a peeling cabinet could be transformed into such a cute display piece? Brilliant!

Hi Diane!
I like how this display case turned out!
How is summer coming along? Are your grandboys going to camp? We wer ein Colorado recently and now my daughter moved there with her fiance! I know I'll be frequent!

Hope all is well!
