Another Sidewalk Sunday!!!

It's been over a month now since I first noticed her.


She was being held captive between two trash cans and subject to the strange weather we've been having. 
I won't bore you with all the details of how she became mine.

Here's the condensed version,

I asked- they said yes- I brought her home. 

I'm thinking she would make a really cute addition to a childs room. A cute mirror for when it's needed and then a chalk board on the back side??


On the bottom she has the most adorable little compartments where the chalk and eraser could be stored.



 Isn't she cute?
 Maybe the mirror side could hold brushes and hair accessories?
I've already sanded her down for the most part and am now trying to decide on a color.
Any suggestions??

SHe is a beauty! What room where you considering? That is an easy paint job for the most...You can make it white, even add some fun flowers to the bottom, coming out of it. Possibilities are endless! I love it...

Hi Debbie! I actually don't plan on keeping this one. I'm going to be having my first sale sometime in April (yikes!) I think I might play it safe and either paint her white or cream with a little bit of distressing. Thanks for the suggestion!

Love the find! How about white? But it really depends on what you're trying to match it with... or if you'll even end up keeping it for yourself. Let us know what you decide to do with it!!

I love it! How fun.
What a neat little piece of furniture.
Creamy white with a new, fun knob from Anthropologie would be nice!!
