Project Dresser

My husband's family has passed this dresser down through 3 generations now.. Luckily, I was able to snag it- shab it - and use it!

Before.....










& The After.....
















Here is what I used...



50% off chipped glass knobs from Hobby Lobby




total cost $9.00




Martha Stewart Interior Flat Paint


Color: Sisal




I sanded the entire piece, painted it with all of my brush strokes going the same direction, then put it together and VIOLA! It was so fun!!

  2. You made a great choice on the knobs...one of my favorites from Hobby Lobby. They have the best hardware. Love the height and baskets. Very useable and pretty!

  5. Nicole,
    This is an adorable dresser! You really made it into a very sweet piece! I just picked up one like it last week at the Salvation Army and can't wait to fix it up!

  6. Very sweet transformation! I can't quite make out what you did in place with the top drawer though.. I'd also love to see bigger pics. :)
