Free Dresser Makeover

One of my favorite signs of spring, actually, favorite sign ever, is seeing signs like this: FREE. Especially when they are on such a gorgeous piece of furniture that also included the original wheels! It needed some work, replacement of a few knobs and replacement of the little thingies that keep the drawers from pushing all the way back, rework the paint job, but nothing major.

My neighbor and fellow booth owner drooled over it with me and suggested just sanding it down for a more distressed look. Sure beats stripping and repainting!


Glad I followed her advice, it turned out BEAUTIFULLY!






Sanded and sanded and sanded then sealed with FAT Paint clear wax. Looks wonderful in the sunlight! Had to stop and take pics while loading it up.








This is my favorite shot. 



And here she is set up in my booth. The dresser wasn't even situated yet before someone came by and started gushing over it. She literally couldn't keep her hands off it and kept stroking the top and sides while talking to me. Can't blame her.

Peek a boo, you can see my reflection in the mirror. 


The quote in the frame reads: Beauty is Ageless.



And a quick peek at what is hanging around in the booth. 


I'll be sad to see this one go. 



Off to find more FREE signs. :)

  8. What a difference a little distressing can make. It looks so much better now, and is full of character.
