This dresser was by a dumpster near my mom's apartment yesterday so I scooped it up, had my man♥servant cut and fit new drawer bottoms, spraybombed it with a thin coat of brown paint (to even out the flaws a bit), and then modpodged some cute pink and white houndstooth scrapbook paper to the sides. I left the top unpainted to make it contrast better. This was seriously the junkyest piece of junk I've ever picked up but it was one of my quickest, easiest, and cutest rescues. I like it for it's petite form, long legs, and tongue-and-groove surface.

I love it!  It's fancy with the paper but rustic with the 'wornness'.  Awesome!!

You really have vision because I would have seen this and turned it into firewood!  You took trash and made it a treasure!!  I'm impressed  Smiley
