You may remember that I picked up this little mini dresser while garage saling recently.
I knew it would be a fun one to restyle.
I started by sanding it lightly, cleaning it and then painting the outside in Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth. Then I added some bits and pieces from I.O.D.’s Label Ephemera transfer to the top and front.
I really wish someone would come out with another typography transfer. I just love this one, but I am getting a little tired of re-using the same wording over and over. And of course, it also is retired so eventually retailers are going to run out of their inventory. It would be fun to have something new, wouldn’t it?
I gave it a pop of color on the inside by painting it with Fusion’s Laurentien. I wanted to use an all in one style paint, like Fusion or Dixie Belle’s Silk for durability. After choosing some October Afternoon scrapbook paper to line the drawers, I decided that the Laurentien was the perfect color to go with the paper.
Rather than flipping up on hinges, or having a top drawer, this little dresser has a lid that comes off.
This piece would be fantastic as a jewelry box, but I chose to style it with crafting supplies.
I mean seriously, how cute would this be for keeping some of your crafting supplies organized?
But using it as a jewelry box would be a valid option as well.
I definitely prefer the ‘after’ version, how about you?
