Each month I team up with some blog friends for our “Thrifty Style Series,” where we share thrifted (or second-hand, hand me down, etc.) items styled in our home. I thought now that we are making over our boys’ bedroom (I shared the moodboard here if you missed it the other day), now would be as good a time as any to share their lime green dresser that we will soon be getting rid of! Ha.
I actually love the dresser, but there are a few reasons we are getting rid of it. First of all, it doesn’t go with the new color scheme, but more importantly, I told myself a few years ago when I bought it that I would repair the broken drawer slides, and I haven’t. The drawers are heavy and I’m just not sure I want to put the effort into repairing them when we probably won’t use it anyway. A handle totally broke off (after this photo was taken), and ultimately, we just want something different. I paid about $50 for this dresser which I found on Craigslist, and it was a good deal. It’s solid wood and very large, it just needed some repairs and a makeover. Here’s what it looked like when we got it.
For the makeover, I used the same exact color and method found here via Sarah of The Yellow Cape Cod.
