Not very often do I get amazing free finds anymore, since everyone in town has realized how awesome upcycling is. I'm not complaining at all, because I've been crazy busy, and don't have as much time as I'd like, so I'm glad more people are helping keep these beauties out of the landfills. But sometimes, I still hit a goldmine.
Look at this poor dresser:
This was actually taken after I took the worst of the warped veneer off. But underneath that ravaged and rain-worn exterior, were adorable little keyholes and gorgeous wood details. First step though, was tearing off that irreparable side and replacing it.
So, we went through a few phases before I declared this little ray of sunshine 'done'.
So much better! But the green crystal looked off... even though the inside of the drawers were turquoise, it just looked weird. So, we upgraded.
All white and crystal! This looked so much better. Almost perfect, except...
There we go! That flourish at the back needed the white border.
This lovely bit of cheer is in my bedroom, now.
