Last Saturday the wards that meet at our church building had a combined "Swap Meet." It was a true swap meet in the sense that NO money was exchanged. You brought your junk for others to take and you got to take whatever you wanted! I so totally wanted a wingback chair to reupholster, but I don't have anywhere to put it. :o( Instead, my Dear Brother-In-Law showed this to me. A real wood little dresser that would be perfect for the kids art supplies and the rest of our office supplies and paper. (My Dear Brother-In-Law also told my DS3 that all the toys were free and to take whatever he wanted after I told him no! (needless to say, my Brother-In-Law will be getting the Christmas Tazmanian Devil that my son picked up for his Christmas this year!)
When my potty-training daughter woke me up at 3 in the morning, I couldn't get back to sleep for a while because I was thinking of what I could do to make this dresser special. This design came to mind. I sketched it out to see if it would look right and I LOVED it. Don't you love it when half asleep ideas turn out great!
Then I got my silver paint pen out and traced the design I made.
And removed the tape.
And fell in love.
I added clear knobs *swoon* to the drawers, and I couldn't be happier!
That's my kind of makeover!
