I picked up a little wooden dresser on Freecycle a while back.  A very dark blue with a smattering of  mismatched drawer pulls.  It wouldn't really match where I wanted to put it.



Soooo.....4 coats of primer later....


I invested in some new drawer pulls too.  So for about $15 (paint, primer, pulls) I got a new place to store some extra fabric from all my sewing!

Really good job! That's really cute.
I have a wooden book shelf I've been meaning to paint, but somehow I haven't made it to the store yet. I don't have the $$$ to spend $15 on it, tho.

You can always check the "Oops" paint section for cheap paint.  I've gotten alot of great stuff there, but it's hit or miss, so you should always check it when you're in the store.
