A different kind of post today

Once upon a time, I wanted to start a blog where I would show my crafty and cheap home decor items. I think it lasted one whole month before I just got too busy. And I never returned to it. You can see it here:

Fast forward 18 months and the bug bit me again. So I started perusing Craigslist. I found this solid wood dresser on Craigslist for $50. Kind of pricey, but I liked the design and really needed the drawers to help organize my home. So I grabbed it up!



After a few coats of white paint and some primer it is transformed. I spray painted the handles a nice blue. I know it's kind of different looking, but I need to put blue in my house any way I can get since dh won't let me paint any walls blue. ;-)

I am super happy with it and it's so much nicer than what has been in the foyer for years.
(This boring Ikea sofa table.)
Our dog has a balloon in his mouth, by the way. And the girls were chasing him. Fun times.

Thanks for stopping by!

I will have a new card on here this weekend. I missed stamping!!!


  1. awesome job!! i love blue...i painted my bedroom blue and my craft room:)

  2. Wow, that looks sooo great! Way better than the original :) I'm going to go check out the other blog now!

  3. How fun! I admire anyone who can find old junk and turn it into something cool. I'll bet those drawers will come in very handy, too.

  4. WOW Susan, I am totally impressed. This turned out just ab fab. Infact I like the blue handles with the white cabinets. Really neat.

  5. Great job! It looks wonderful!

  6. This looks so good! GREAT job!

    And I love the dresser in the foyer...
    I have a buffet!
    But I love having the drawers...

    Though admittedly...
    I do need to organize! ;(
