Curbside Creation

After finishing the birdie dresser I was a bit addicted to the "before&after". So off I went to Goodwill to find something else to work on. On the way there I found this little dresser at the end of someones driveway. It's a bit on the ugly side and made of MDF and veneer. And take special notice of the lovely shiny brass handles!

After a nice paint job (and this time I used my husband's paint sprayer!) and some new drop pull handles, this dresser is beautiful.


  1. I love what you did with this, the drop handles are a nice touch. I almost used those type of handles on my dresser I just refinished.

  2. Oh my goodness, your story is exactly like mine! Yesterday I was on my way to Goodwill when I spotted an old green dresser at the curb. I have been posting on Craigslist for an old wood dresser but no bites. This find was a delightful surprise. BTW great site!
