I am sooooo excited! I finally finished. It's my first furniture re-do. I took this old, pukey green dresser, and transformed it into something that I absolutely love.

While I know it has flaws, quite a few actually, I did it. I used spray paint and modge podge and . . . voila!

How about that color huh? I really liked the furniture but NOT the color. I know, I know, there was a time when this was the in thing, right?

This is my finished project, (I really did just finish, that's why it's still in the basement) My only regret is that you can't really see the material that I put behind the baskets. But don't worry, I am going to show you, because I love it! (The material is where the modge podge came in.) I wish you could see it better, but hey, this is my first time so be gentle.


  1. OH. MY. WORD. IT LOOKS GREAT!!!!! Love it!!! You did a great job!! I think the baskets look great, but, we can take them back and switch them for some shorter ones so you can see that material if you want to!!!!

    Sherry will love this!!

  2. love it too! looks great now where are you going to put it?

  3. oh and another thing, if this is your basement then i'm severely jealous! i've lots of junk in mine and i think there is one of those yucky green dressers down there.
