Dresser Up

Here's the before picture of a dresser David picked up this summer at a benefit garage sale. Twenty bucks and it was ours. I didn't know where I was going to put it, so I let it sit in the garage for a while. I took off the knobs before I thought to take the picture, so for history sake, I put one of each back on.

Because I just had so much time on my hands -- really not true (should have been preparing more for my Stake Primary Appreciation Dinner at my house last night -- pictures of some darling cupcakes coming soon) I hurried to try to get this done prior to my get-together, but we didn't have time to put on the hardware and drill holes. Anyway, it's done. Who knows if it will stay in the living room or not. I am always rearranging.

Next project. My card catalog that has been a garage resident for many years longer than this piece. That ought to take some time. I'll keep you posted.
