Dresser Before and After

A lot has happened since my last blog post of JULY! Where to begin? There was another Old Times Day, the starting of a sunroom addition and so much more.

Today was our annual trek to Monroeville for shopping and to Peterman for the annual craft festival. The festival is held every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We packed so much in and still had a little energy left when we got home. So...we turned on our Christmas music and made some pralines. OMG! To die for!
Earlier in the summer Jacob and I ran across this dresser at a yardsale. It was priced $10.00. I have a special place in my heart for lonely furniture. EVERY piece wants to come home with me. (Smile). This is the before:

The before pictures make the dresser look like it was in better condition than it actually was. I have seen so many nice transformations where people have painted pieces black. So, I was itching to give it a try. This is the result:

I am so pleased with how it turned out! Here it is all decked out for Thanksgiving:

The drawers are a generous size and will be the new home for all my gift wrapping supplies. It will be great to have all my wrapping supplies in one handy place.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
