Before & After

.
.
So I mentioned last week that I got this dresser (and a matching shelf) at a thrift store for $10.



.
This is what the dresser looks like today.

.

I wish all I had to do was buy an $8 can of paint and a $4 can of spray paint to improve my look.

You should be on HGTV!! Nice, I like it! BTW the song is awesome! I might memorize it so I can sing it in public:)

I am Lorinda W- you can call me LoW said...

Ani- You know you like it.

Beth- You are so kind! And you SO could pull off singing that song anywhere!

Ma- the shelf is on the other side of my bed. Not much to a shelf though.... so I didn't bother with photographing it. Just know it matches the dresser, and you've got an idea of it.

I have about 20 of those same handles if you want more. I redid my bedroom suit and painted it black with destressed edges. I bought new knobs from Lowes. I will send you some pics.

You did a great job!

Ani- tell Jud yes. The gold in the mouth drives us nuts.

Sherena- The handles we used are the ones that came with it, which worked because I liked them. :)
