dresser it up

my michael is the best at finding free things alongside the road. or at getting great steals at garage sales. one of his most recent finds - for free - was a dresser that malacai was in great need of. all it needed was a little paint and some new hardware. total cost for us: about $30.

i didn't get a great "before" shot because mike was so anxious to get this project done for me. i walked out onto the porch one morning and there it was, done. i just happened to have this one that i took with my phone while we were trying to figure out whether to paint it or strip it & stain it. (lately i've wanted everything painted, so paint we did).

the bottom drawers weren't in when i took this, they had ugly plastic hardware on them. the top drawers actually had nice white old porcelain knobs, but we couldn't find any to match. plus i don't think the white on white would have worked.
