Trash to Treasure Tuesday~


Here is a little dresser that I pulled off of a curbside pile of trash. It is an old-old dresser fully made out of oak. It is only 26 inches high, and is basically the same height as the twin bed it sits next to. There was one handle missing, so I replaced all of them.... and added a couple of coats of white paint. (love that shabby chic look) The top of the dresser has burn marks where someone had placed cigarettes around the edge-- bunch of uncouth sorts who owned it previously I imagine~

Hi Cheryl
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog - I'm so glad you did so that I could find yours :-)
Your dresser find is fabulous. Once a year in our town we hold a "scrappers day" were curbside treasures like your dresser can be found! It's my daughter and my favourite part of summer :-)
Happy New Year!
