She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

One Mans Junk Is Another Mans Treasure

Can ya beleive it,
I remembered to take a before picture of my sideboard estate sale find.
I always jump right into a project and forget about the before picture,
but I'm getting better at it.
This piece needed a door put back on, new rails on the inside of the drawers,
knobs and of course some white paint.
~
There she is in all her glory,
just like new but better,
well loved!
