I found this beauty in the trash and decided I absolutely HAD to have it.

{Please note mandatory cat in photo}



Now my 1st idea was to paint it cream and decoupage this really pretty wrapping paper onto the top but I was limited with my supplies ..... grey primer spray paint and glossy almond spray paint. So I tested it with 1 drawer and to my amazement it made this beautiful crackle and looked totally shabby chic. I also spray painted the hardware with a metallic black paint and now I have an awesome dresser I have no idea what to do with.








Thank you for looking! C&C always welcome.

Thank you for the love.

No sanding just grey primer spray paint and the cream colored spray paint.  Grin

I can't believe someone threw this gem out!  I love the "shabbiness" you added to it.  I think it would look great in a hall entry way if you have one.  I'd love to myself.
