Craigslist dresser makeover

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Remember my awesome craigslist find I wrote about here? Well, I was finally able to finish the makeover. I love how it turned out and it has completely transformed our bedroom, providing lots of storage. Here’s the Before.
It was in pretty good shape, but the  color made it look dated and tired. Some primer, and a few coats of paint later, I have the dresser of my dreams.
I know there are a lot of things on top of the dresser, but I couldn’t wait to show you until I figured out the best way to use the space. Here are a few more shots.
What do you think?
