Turquoise Dresser Reveal

Earlier this month we purchased a pretty beat up dresser from a lady on Craigslist. It had been passed around their family and eventually found a home in her teenage daughters room. This old guy had seen better days but had great bones - solid wood, drawer pulls and slides in great condition and it was on casters! Always be sure to open and close all the drawers before buying a dresser -- sellers can be sneaky and rig up their broken drawer slides so they appear to be straight. Always better to be safe than sorry.
 
I fell in love with this old guy and his cheap price tag! After a good scrub down, some patching of the damage spots, a few coats of paint, a little dristressing and a new top... we had a beautiful dresser again!
 

 
 
 







 
Unfortunatly this guy was swooped up within the hour of posting it For Sale! But, I had such great feedback from the turquoise color, that I'll definitely be on the lookout for more dressers.
 
Have you found any treasures lately? Let us know how your projects are coming along!
 
Happy Treasure Hunting,
Ashley
