My Before and After Project

I had been in great need of a dresser for my guest bedroom when I came across this little project on 

Really, can you believe that before?

I had been searching high and low online for a unique dresser and could not find anything out of the ordinary and a typical dresser was over $300 at Ikea or Target. 

I began surfing Craigslist daily when I came across this beauty.

Seriously, it even had the Trellis Print that I swoon over. 

I know what you are thinking, but stay with me. 

I imagined painting it Gray and adding new knobs and BAM this is what we ended up with.

I have right at  $100 in this including the new knobs.

Now I am searching high and low for a china hutch similar to the one above so I can redo it. 


  1. Ahhhh! I'm dying to do this as well with a dresser and china cabinet! Do a post on how you did it!!

  2. She would Classic Annie but Keith would have to write that post!! LOL! Looks great Lu!

  3. That turned out great! I love up-cycling old furniture. It always has so much more charm.

  4. This looks GREAT! We are about to tackle our first project with an old book shelf. I want it to be the "perfect Restoration Hardware" gray. Fingers crossed it turns out super cute like this!

  5. Okay so apparently Lu stays logged in on here. Dee, this is Keith saying thank you for noticing!

  6. Ahh LOVE!!! You're gonna have to give me some good tips next time you're in the vile, or when we see each other!!
