Perhaps you’ve seen something like this sitting on a cold, dirty linoleum floor at your local thrift store; a top bookshelf for a desk or a china hutch for on top a cabinet. Because there’s little to no use for a lonely hutch, I can pick them up for cheap. Then, I see if I have a dresser that needs something special; that little extra touch.
Since I painted them the same color, they look like a perfect pair; a match made in up-cycling, repurposing, shabby chic heaven.

and the set sold in a week. Antique Plaza
I found this wood vintage bookshelf at a garage sale for $5.00 (don't be fooled by the picture, it was in bad shape).
I painted it and matched it up with this cute little Drexel dresser.
I think it turned out pretty dramatic.
I also mismatched my date night outfit with something borrowed and something used. These $5.00 XCVI pants (new they sell for over $100) are from Goodwill, while the shirt was borrowed from my sister-in-law.
