This guy has white diamonds.
And he has great storage.
And he is six-sided (hexagonal!).
But no legs.
You know how I love six-legged furniture.
He was a blast from the late 60's.
He had lost his groove thang.
He had the annoying gray, scented gunk on his top which I have been finding on many pieces.
I am blaming scent diffusers.
All the gray gunk sanded off, and the gloss removed.
Let's get his groove thang back.
I used Rust-Oleum in Navajo White.
Both outside and ...
This guy has found his groove thang and got on up to a new century.
Diamonds in classic white.
I have been painting like mad.
Did you notice I did not distress this guy?
Don't worry there is distressing on the horizon.
Meanwhile, after reading for years what Suzan of Simply Vintageous found on Craig's List, I peeked at our local ads and discovered not the usual puppies, kittens, mattresses and moving boxes, but some real furniture!
Over the phone I was told to drive to El Cheapo's to meet Mike who would take me to a storage facility for me to view the furniture.
Chucks thought it sounded shady so he insisted on going.
Mike turned out to be a guy I meet at estate sales all the time. Not shady at all!
Here's what I bought. Sorry about phone pics.
A Duncan Phyfe sewing stand, a Martha Washington sewing stand, and a smoking stand.
All in original condition.
No painting necessary.
A 1960's record album cabinet painted green.
All pieces can be found along with Mr. White Diamonds in Booth C-23, Riverfront Antique Mall.
