A few years ago, I was leaving my brother's house when I saw this baby on the curb. It had an antique mirror attached to it in perfect condition! I was so excited (my brother was mortified) I could hardly contain myself. I've thought about painting, but can't really decide on the color and I kind of like the wood on the front too. Well, I love it for my TV and my videos fit inside. The only problem is my satellite and DVD player sits under there on the floor. Well, the 7-month-old has discovered that! So time to change it out.About 7 years ago, I found this bad boy on the curb, too! It wasn't so pretty, but I painted it tan and redid the top, and my husband put up with it for awhile. When I found the small one, Mr. Right couldn't wait to take it to the basement for me (OK - it weighs a ton and he wasn't that happy about it. Really, Mr. Right wanted to put it on the curb!) I got it with all but one of the drawers was there. The front of the drawer was all that was left of the middle drawer. I had a plan, though, and I'll tell you about that in a minute.
Mr. Right's workplace ripped out some bathroom tile that was beautiful and he had brought a bucket of it home for craft projects. I used it to make a Mosaic on the top of the dresser. It's not the perfect solution, but it was free at the time.
Well, this bigger dresser had to come out to get the TV out of reach of the the baby, so I had more plans for this dresser. (It's been sitting in retirement in the basement.) I got out my white paint to redo it and because of the shape of the dresser, it wasn't going on very smoothly. Then I took some sand paper to it and added a touch of stain too.
Here's what I came up with. It's great, because those drawers can hold all the videos and cords for the TV.
Here's a closer look at the top. There are some gaps in it, but I may change the whole thing out soon. Mr. Right re-attached the trim that we had all the way around the top edge.
