This morning I stopped at one of the local Goodwill stores and there IT was. There was a sunbeam of light shining down and I think I heard harps playing. At least inside my head. The exact right measurements plus two sweet little drawers - bonus! Now get ready for the very best part. Really. Get ready. Apparently no one wanted it because it is really the top off a hutch and there is no bottom shelf so it was marked $4.99. That's FOUR DOLLARS and NINETY NINE CENTS. Change back from a five. SCORE!!!
This is how it looks after I cleaned it up and replaced the drawer pulls. They were missing and it was drilled with two holes for each pull. I filled the holes and drilled a new one in the middle of each drawer and then attached two vintage Bakelite pulls I had been saving for a special project. More Karma at work.
It fits just perfectly on top of the box like they were made for each other. Now I have to keep looking at it until "my eyes are filled up", as my Grandma would have said. I better look hard because once I clutter it up with all my
junk treasures I'll never see it again!
