My FREE dresser!

So a lady Shaun works with had a dresser she wanted to get rid of. HELLO FREE! So here is the before:
I think I see why she wanted to get rid of it.
So I started sanding while watching 'Up All Night'.
Then LAYERED on white paint. The husband hates it when I paint stuff white (which is everything) but pff, what do men know anyway.
I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a few knobs for 1.50 each and here is the finished project!
It only cost me $9! I don't know what to do with it now though.. thought?


I linked up with Chic on a Shoestring Decorating for Flaunt it Friday!


  1. Wow the after looks great!
    We've been here for 4 years. Funny my exhusband is stationed at Ft hood (well right now in Afghanistan) It truly is a small world!
    Well if you're ever this way we should get together and go shopping or something LOL

  2. Oh my gosh! I LOVE this!!! It looks completely different!!! I love how unique it is! Hmm....what to do with it...It has such potential! Some fun decor (obviously :P) and maybe use it as extra storage around the kitchen or living room or even just as an accent piece if you don't need the storage...
    I'd love to see a picture of what you do end up using it for!

  3. you should give it to me LOL. I have an old dresser that was my great grandmas. It is in HORRIBLE shape, and we don't even use it....but I have been wanting to sand and paint it for years so that it can be used...but just have not gotten around to it. lol this inspires me!

  4. Wow It looks really great, What kind of paint would you use to paint a dresser?

  5. That looks great. Yes, hubby's don't know too much about decor ideas.

  6. Wow, this would make a lovely dressing table! You did great with the refinishing.

  7. Hello terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a great deal

  8. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm
    not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it
