A sneak peek...

Found this little gem on CL for $10. This is the original before picture from CL. It also came with a huge trifold mirror, super cool but not part of the original dresser. Needs some TLC, which I've already started by sanding it down and pulling off the "rubber" deco piece lining the front. You can't see it in the picture because they painted over the whole thing. I can't wait to finish this one up!

This will be my second dresser to refinish. I just refinished mine that I found last weekend for $35 at an Estate Sale. An awesome estate sale I might say. Nanny and I happened to stumble across it and hit the jackpot. And again, she talked them down a bit, thanks Nanny, Love you!

Sorry, I didn't take any before pics, but you can picture the old stained wood look. The minute I finished it and put it in place, hubby was all over it and wanted a new dresser for himself. Stay tuned to see how his turns out. This one, is MINE!


  1. This is a gorgeous piece of furniture! It'll be interesting to see how your first one turns out!

  2. This is sooo cute. I love the black legs and little castor wheels. What a bargain too! If you like furniture refurbs, feel free to check out my new blog cause I love them!

  3. I had one exactly like that that I redid! It looks great.

  4. Beautiful!! I just started my own business refinishing furniture, and it's all I do now! :) I've got a dresser similar to yours and can't wait to get my hands on it! good job and nice to meet you! -shaunna :)

  5. Oh my gosh! I'm so excited to meet you all! Shaunna, Renee, Kristine and Shanna! My first "real" comments. (hubby doesn't count. : ) ) I'm also excited to go check out all of your wonderful blogs and become a fan! The second dresser is almost completely sanded down. I can't wait to get on to the painting, I have so many ideas floating around in my head!

    Thanks again for the wonderful comments, they really started a fire under the behind to get more projects done and posted!
