USING APPLIQUES ON FURNITURE - rustic french bedside cabinets

There they were sitting one on top of the other on
the side of the street, two little wood boxes covered in
banged up black paint. I was heading the opposite direction
when I first saw them and had to make a uturn to get

maybe add some interest on the drawer, and
potentially lift them up higher with new legs.

weeks. What I wouldn't give to have a garage of my
own, anyways back to the story. Once I had the extra
space she then delivered it all the way to my place. Gotta
love friends like this. She had sent me a photo when she
first found it but I had forgotten what it looked like. Upon
opening the back of her truck I became speechless ...
