Finished - Dresser

I completed refinishing this dresser back in April, but didn't get around to taking the "after" photos until recently.

Here's the before:

Solid wood dresser found at the Goodwill for $45. Definitely within my budget, but the dark stain wasn't doing much for me. It was well made and could easily be spruced up.

Here's the after:

A fresh coat of paint (Valspar "Silver Leaf") and a set of vinyl stickers (special order from Lowes) and it's right at home in my sewing room! I really wanted glass knobs for the drawers, but I couldn't justify paying $48 plus tax for them. So, we opted to just repaint the existing knobs, which kept the total cost of refinishing at around $75.

Best of all, my sewing supplies are all tucked away in the drawers and easily accessible.
Hooray for good organization!
