Transformation Tuesdays #1 Chest of Drawers

There are so many reasons to celebrate
Over the past few months I have learned to celebrate the little things in life
Whether it's a new haircut
New outfit
Shed poundage
New job
New boyfriend
 let's find a reason to say "hurray"
I have created Transformation Tuesdays
just for this purpose
You can link up anything you wish to share
with us and we'll celebrate with you!
It can be a much needed
room rearrangement
repurposing an old something or other
or something I've listed or not listed above.
Here's my Transformation Tuesday

 sanded down

This is an old chest of drawers that was literally
tossed to the curb
My hubby saw quite a potential in it
and we are now using it in our big guy's room
total cost $60  for paint, knobs and fabric

 Paint is Behr brand "beluga" in semi gloss. He used less than a quart. It's a brownish black. It looks a little glare-y because the paint was not fully dry.

Love the detail on this piece!

In the big guy's room :)

I lined the drawers in the same fabric as the lamp I did for his room. This is quite the task, btw, I only did one because I couldn't stand the 101 degrees heat outside.
But I couldn't wait to show you! It looks so much better in person.

my husband used his spray gun to paint it after
sanding it thoroughly
he then put on these snazzy new drawer knobs
and we saved ourselves about $139
 for a new dresser at Ikea.
Best part of all--this is REAL wood.

So now it's your turn.

  1. Wow! That is awesome! I just "transformed" a white wicker planter. But I didn't take any pictures!

  2. It looks beautiful! I love the idea of lining the drawers with fabric. However I can only imagine how difficult that was. You've done a great job.

  3. Thanks for linking up! Love the details on the dresser, you did a beautiful job!
