I picked-up this dresser this summer at Goodwill…
It was missing the top drawer & was only $3.99 (don’t let that red color fool you – it was spray painted brick red – not stained with a cherry finish).
I decided to remove the next drawer as well and turn that space into a bookshelf.
We sanded it down and painted it Nester Blue. I want new hardware, but I still haven’t found the perfect pulls (I just spray painted the old ones black).
It now holds my cookbooks on the shelf and my platters and serving dishes in the drawers.
Paint, $23.99 (after rebate)
And we threw some coasters on that third drawer ($3.98) and turned it into under the bed storage for the boys’ coloring books…
