Finished Product:

So I've downsized my living space recently and have been looking for a way to condense my stuff into a smaller area. I found this scratched-up, crappy little dresser covered in stickers at a thrift store for $7.

I pulled off the back panels (to show off my pretty blue walls) and removed the door (which I'm saving for another project). After a good scrub down, paint job and change of hardware this is what it looks like.

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to paint a design on the side later on (I'm leaning towards no because the colors are already pretty vibrant) but for now I'm happy with how it turned out Smiley

It does look pretty vibrant there, you've done a great job in turning it into a useful and unique piece of furniture.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Looks great. I vote for no design on the side.

That dresser had nowhere to go but up, lol.  You did a great job on it. Love the colours you chose.  I too vote for plain sides, the colours are vibrant enough on their own.
