    My Dresser "upcycle" :) Before & After pics!!

    Advertisements
    I found this idea on Pinterest and finally completed the project. I am really happy with how it turned out!

    Before...I found this dresser at a thrift store for $85




    After!!!





    I am really happy with how it turned out. It took a lot of work but it was such a fun project!

    Thanks! Yeah I had an entire board of dresser redos It took me awhile to finally find a dresser that I actually liked and thought would be a good project. It was a lot easier than I expected it to be. But I would def recommend a power sander...trying to sand an entire dresser by hand would be miserable!!

    I love that!!
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    I hand sanded one of the drawers and DH walked outside to see what I was doing and almost started laughing. He came back with the power sander and pretty much sanded down the entire dresser in the time that it took me to do that one drawer I wish I had known about that hand sander from the beginning!
