Using Second Hand Furniture in Your Home

I love second hand furniture.  I have a weakness for it especially chairs.  I recently purchased a chest of drawers from my favorite local thrift store and after much debating and a little intimidation I decided to paint it.  If you've never seen Mandie and her amazing work at Altar'd you're missing out.  It's okay go ahead.  I'll wait. 

So I've started on my dresser.  I don't have a before picture of the entire dresser or if I do I can't seem to find it.  So I took this picture so you could see what I started with. 

Excuse the mess please.  This is our guest room.  It is almost finished but not enough for a photo op!  I've started painting the first three drawers.  I even attempted glazing one and boy did I do that wrong.  It just looked dirty but Mandie is helping me along the way with her tips so I'm sure I'll be painting like a pro before long.  I cannot wait to finish this project and share it with the rest of blogland! 

Back to painting.....

  1. Hi! You did an incredible job on your dresser!! Thanks for the compliment, I love what I get to do every day, and it all started with a pair of nightstands. I can't wait to see what you do next!
    Blessings!
