Way back in July, I posted about a dresser I found at a garage sale. I paid $13 for this little beauty--a wood Bassett dresser. It was love at first sight, even if the dresser did need a bit of work!
Then in early September I posted about sanding and painting the dresser. And then subsequently needing to repaint the fronts of the drawers after Handsome decided to "paint" with a comb and scratched them up.
And then I left you hanging and never posted an "after" picture! Whoops!! So, here you have it--my $13 dresser in her spray-painted black finish with new shiny silver knobs from Target. The finish on it isn't perfect, but I really like it. I have it behind my family room sectional and it works well as a sofa table. It fronts onto the eating nook in my kitchen and is filled with crayons and other art supplies for my children. Love it! (Remember, you can click on the picture to make it bigger...and to see the sticky fingerprints I need to clean off the drawer fronts!)
Excuse the glare--the light was coming in from the sliding door on the left side of the picture and I don't have wood blinds there (yet--it's a gradual process!) to close. Still, doesn't it look pretty?! $13!! Right now it is decorated for Valentine's Day--I'll post pictures of my Valentine decorations in the next week or so.
