Show Me the Money

So, I picked this up at the flea market. 

And I find this stashed away in a yellowed envelope behind one of the drawers.
What would you do???

We'll get back to the money in a little while.

I painted her in a mix of ASCP Louis Blue and Paris Gray with accents of Old White. Distressed quite a bit and applied clear wax.

French Provincial pieces are my favorites especially when there's a wad of cash hiding in them.

Dry brushed the hardware with Old White. Yeah, I'm getting to the money.

      So, I pull out the money. Honestly a million thoughts are running through my head....cha cha cha ching! This is what I found.....


30 Two dollar bills.........60 bucks.....exactly what I paid for the dresser! So the dresser was free for me. Got me thinking though, if I really did find a significant amount of money what would I do with it. What would you do? Finders keepers, pay it forward, try to find the original owner?

Happy Weekend, Happy Finds!!!

So pretty! I love buffets and that is one of my favorite color combinations! ... And as for the money, it would depend on how I acquired the piece. It may be very difficult to find the rightful owner even if you tried. And really, once you buy it, it's yours!

I would have made an attempt to find the owner,

Beautiful job. I would have checked with the flea market vendor to see if they owned the piece or if they knew who did. Returned the money. You bought a dresser - they were not selling money.


So happy to have found your blog today. I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll stop by and visit with me too.
