Feature Friday #5

Today's feature is Gloria of the blog Potentially Beautiful.  Don't you wish you could find beautiful pieces of furniture by the side of the road?  Yeah, me too.  Anyways, Gloria's sister found this diamond in the rough waiting to be picked up by the trashman, but she picked it up instead:
Lucky for Gloria, her sister gave it to her. Gloria painted it with white chalkpaint. The veneer on the top was in rough shape, so instead of refinishing it, she covered it with random book pages stuck on with Mod Podge. Brilliant!!
Here's the final reveal:
Isn't it beautiful?!?!?

I encourage you to go visit Gloria and show her some blog love.

I have been perplexed on how to deal with damaged veneer (remember this buffet?), but thanks to Gloria and her thinking outside of the dresser box here's a great solution!

Have a great weekend.

It's beautiful! I have to check out that Mod Podge stuff. And speaking of on the side of the road, I've slammed on the breaks and have considered reversing (on a side road without my daughter in the car) to eye up furniture out for "trash". Ha!
