old now New dresser

Jed and I got down to business the other night and finally finished our bedroom dresser. After selling our yellow one we decided to go for a more neutral color. I love this dresser because we got it for FREE out of someones trash.. gross? Well that's our favorite type of furniture.. it was pretty dirty/dusty, but with some sandpaper, stain, and paint we now love it. 

dresser: FREE strangers trash 
paint: $5
knobs/pulls: $12
stain: on hand
total: $17

Love it! You should ask your clients for some dumpster diving tips! ....inappropriate?

Beautiful! I just finished a dresser too, and I know how much work it is!

I love how it turned out! Salvaged furniture is the best, even if the refinishing is a lot of work.

This rocked, you should have been nominated for crafting with the stars, (i didn't make the cut, either. ) would you want to "craft from the sidelines??"
