It’s time for our monthly “Thrifty Style” series where I team up with some blog friends to share thrifted (or secondhand, hand-me-down, etc.) items in our homes. The item I’m sharing this month is something you’ve seen on the blog but I haven’t featured it since several years ago when I found it on Craigslist. It didn’t receive the feature it really deserves, since it was actually my first furniture makeover and the first thing I ever stained. I found this old dresser on Craigslist, and now use it as a dining room sideboard. (This post contains affiliate links.)
Here’s what it looked like when I got it. (This photo is ancient, so please excuse the quality and giant watermark.)
And here it is now.
I stained the top with a Minwax Ebony stain, and painted the rest with Benjamin Moore White Diamond. I lightly distressed the edges, and I kept the original hardware (just cleaned it up a bit). I don’t think I’ll keep it in the dining room forever, but for now it serves the purpose we need it to. I store tons of craft supplies in it, so it comes in handy.
