Here is the chest of drawers I showed you in the craigslist post.
The little white pineapple on top was quite a deal. It was FREE! I forgot to take a before picture so you are just getting the after (sowwy). Mrs. DeVore and I had the ultimate thrifting/yardsale/fun day. It was a "great success" (said in a Borat voice). We showed up to one of the yard sales late and apparently the neighborhood was going to have a donation service come and pick up the stuff that didn't sell so they put it at the end of the driveways. I know what you're thinking....and yes we did it. We dug through the bags at the end of the driveways. I got a Tupperware 9x14 cake container for free, a basket, and the cute pineapple! The embarrasing part it the guy that lived at the house came outside while we were snooping through his stuff. Whoops.
I spray painted the pineapple white to go more with my decor. It actually has a candle inside but I painted it shut.
I also found the book on top at Goodwill for $1.39. Not only does it make me look studious it goes with the whole red and black thing.
These little guys also live on top of the new piece. They are succulents called "Hens and Chickens". Why you ask...well I have no idea. You'll have to Google that and let me know. You just break off the leaves and set them on top of dirt and they grow! It's a pretty amazing thing. I love the color and well, think they are just darn cute.
Stay tuned for more posts that are related to the best thrifting/yardsale/fun day ever!
