I often see miscellaneous wood pieces at the thrift store. I kind of feel like they are forgotten because they look so sad. But if you just think about what a coat of paint would do for that lovely vintage shaped shelf or box, you’ll snatch them up quicker than I grabbed this little box last time I was out.
I admit, first I thought it was a stool because there was no hardware on the drawer. Once I realized it was a drawer I got even more excited!

I also added a cute little iron knob that I bought at Hobby Lobby.
Next time you walk through the wooden section of the thrift store take a second look at what is there.
