Curbside Dresser

Don't cha just love a freebee on the side of the road???  They're my fav!!  :)
Speaking of favorites...One of my AWESOME girl friends is always finding things for me...She is a long distance runner and I swear she's everywhere.  :)  She's probably running right now as I sit at the computer with my cup of coffee typing...well at least my fingers are in shape!?!?

Anyway, she called me up one evening saying she found a dresser and I might want to take a look at it.....
Needles to say I grabbed my husband and off we went.

It was missing it drawer pulls and a bottom of one drawer, but other than that it was in great home it went.  :)

I mixed up some homemade chalk paint  (i use plaster of paris in mine) and painted it white....It had been a lovely green, so after the paint was dry I distressed it so some of the green showed through.
The cute drawer pulls came from World Market

For a bit of whimsy....I painted the sides of the drawers with random yellow dots to match the pulls.

I still need a little some thing so I headed over to The Graphics Fairy and downloaded this darling french bee design ...

Printed it out and used Mod Podge to transfer it.... You can find my tutorial on how to transfer on my side bar.  :)  Don't you think it was the perfect touch?

Here it is down in my little space...Needless to say it wasn't there for long.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side bar...Do check them out!

  5. Beautiful, I always think this is why God didn't want me driving , I'd be bringing home all kinds of stuff. The other day while on the bus, we passed a beautiful secretary on the side of the road, I'm sick about leaving it there still... God blessed you with a great friend.
