I bought this vintage dresser at a thrift store for a mere $20.00 about a year ago. What a steal! I loved the shape of it and the casters on the bottom. I brought it home and placed it in the garage. I painted it white and distressed it and there it stood for months, tucked away under boxes of stuff! Life got in the way I guess you can say.
Well, last week I finally cleaned out my garage, cleaned up the dresser and it made its way into our master bedroom. It has finally found its new home and I Love it. I’ve hung an antique mirror above it and think they compliment each other perfectly.
Sometimes you just have a stroke of luck when out treasure hunting. I am sure whoever priced it at $20 could not see past its pitiful appearance. A simple coat of paint, sand paper and a little elbow grease transformed this piece from an “Ugly Duckling” to a Beautiful White Swan!
Thanks for visiting today!

Amazing what white paint and hard work can do, isn't it?! What a wonderful job you did and your bedroom (what I can see of it) looks so cozy and inviting- a real retreat! Happy VTT and thanks for sharing!
You did a great job – it looks awesome! Oh, and the hydrangeas are a perfect addition.

Don't you just love it when you find treasure shopping in your own house…..it looks wonderful! Happy Friday!!!!
I am traveling over from Transformation Thursday! I love it! It looks really nice in your room. I have an end table that I just bought for $10 and I am trying to figure out how I want to redo it!

Wow! Hard to believe that this was only $20! I love painting just about everything cream or white, and you did a fantastic job!
That's the kind of thrifting luck I need about now. Great job on the makeover!
Oh, I love it! The knick knacks on the top are perfect for the vintage look. Great job!
