You may remember me telling you a while back that I was On A Mission to find the perfect dresser for one of my rooms. Because I enjoy thrifting so much and have ran across some really nice items, my husband and I decided we wanted to start a DIY (Do It Yourself) project! We wanted something nice with a vintage/contemporary vibe. It’s hard to find nice quality furniture these days. Everything is made of cheap material and lacks that durability that was produced decades ago. The first dresser that I fell in love with…I was heartbroken over because I allowed it to get away. It was a rustic, oak dresser with an unfinished look. I learned my lesson that day. If you see something you want…get it right then! I decided to keep looking around town and I lucked up and found this beauty (below), which had just been brought in. It was $54.99 (including its mirrors). IF you found something like this today, it’ll be close to, if not over, $1000. The quality of this dresser was without a doubt one of the best I’d seen since the 80′s! That thing was so heavy — I knew it was worth all 5, 499 pennies! We also decided we wanted to paint it black and that’s just what we did.
Here are some pics of our project!
Here is the finished product!!!
Look what else I found thrifting! It’s a wine rack…How cute is this?! Notice it’s shaped like a wine bottle! I paid $5.00 for it. It may have been closer to $4.00, I can’t remember. I don’t know about you…but I love finding things like this! It may be a little cheesy, but I love it! lol
Have a great weekend and Happy Thrifting!!!!!!!!!!!
