Chippy Blue Chest

Have you ever pulled up to a garage sale and immediately spotted something that makes you giddy? It happened to me earlier this summer.  I found myself walking quickly towards the piece and thinking, "Please don't let it be sold already" and "Please don't let it be super expensive."
It wasn't sold and it was only $20!  This beautiful chippy chest was coming home with me. 
Now, I realize some people don't see the beauty in this.  Obviously, at some point this chest started to be refinished.  Did the person change their mind?  Just run out of steam? Eventually, it just got pushed to the back of the shed and forgotten?  I don't know the story, but I do know that I love it just the way it is!
 The wonderful hand-carved pulls.....
....the little extra details....the perfect blue color.
I really do love everything about it.  This chest is a wonderful addition to the master bedroom.

Do you have a favorite furniture find from this summer?
