Faded, shabby white paint covers this drawer that once was part of an
old farmhouse bin table
It's wood side runners rubbed thin from the years of use...
It's metal bottom dented & worn,
and it's original paint quite shabby and aged
How fantastic to find something with this character...
that no one has painted over or stripped away.
That crackled white with green chipping through
on the sweet old dog handle-
To some, it would need restoring
but to others,
the crackled paint is absolute perfection.
This delightful bin finds a new home beneath a painted desk
nestled with an antique curvy corbel that
wears a similarly layered worn finish from the years, potted moss balls and a topiary.
A dark stained plank top, creamy painted frame with fluted legs
and carved wreath details on the drawer fronts bring character to this antique desk
and the two pieces are a perfect compliment to each other.
The desk too, is old, banged up a bit but surely loved...
Just like the dented crusty bin.
Wearing a faded white paint,
it's once fresh and shiny finish is
now tarnished with a few chips,
a couple scratches & lots of wear...
but filled with bunches and bunches of delicate white, pink and brown hydrangeas
this little forgotten bin has found a new graceful beauty.
With it's years of character and charm...
It is perfect.
