I wrapped some trim around a $10 Goodwill Dresser, Added a shelf top and some hand-cut diamonds and viola!
The stores beg me to build dressers but I just can't. I can build a bench in the time it takes to build a drawer!
So, every once in a while I will pick up a dresser at a sale or at Goodwill and repurpose it. This was a pretty simple dresser with no trims or decorations. The shelves were all of my left-over end cuts and pieces of trim that I had laying around. Overall this piece cost almost nothing to make since it was all scraps or the $10 dresser itself.
Leafy Dresser: Goodwill dresser, Victorian house trims, Hand-cut diamond appliques, Vintage Plaster picture frame moulding, Miller Latex Paint, Spar Varnish.
