Storage space! before and after

A few weeks ago, I picked up this old dresser from Craigslist. I paid $20.00 for it (she wanted $40.00) and painted it with Sherwin Williams Jadite in semi-gloss. Now I have a few drawers for storing my art/craft/design supplies, and a surface to rearrange things as I please!

Here it was before (ugly!):


Some sanding, filler, primer and paint action:





And now:



(I think art or a large inspiration board is needed above this to fill in the space, yes?)




Tommorrow I'll show you how I revamped the campaign style hardware. It was super easy and fast!

  8. I absolutely LOVE this. I found your blog through your comment you left over at Centsational Girl today and I can't stop reading it. I adore all that you've done to your beautiful home thus far. I found this post at the perfect time bc for the past few days I've been searching for the perfect mint color for a furniture revamp I'm about to tackle. I think this might be THE color!
