Stay at Home Crafter

I love my job, but I dream every day about being a stay at home crafter. Thanks to a break at the end of June I got to pretend to be a stay at home crafter for the week. I loved it!

I found this dresser on craigslist for $35 and that included delivery. I went to look at it at a somewhat questionable place on the westside. I was a little afraid I was buying stolen goods, but it was exactly what I was looking for and decided it wasn't my problem.
10 trips to Home Depot later my dresser is functional and in use


  1. Nice job! How much did your 10 trips to Home Depot cost? Haha! That was always my problem with re-doing furniture!

  2. Turned out cute! You need to take a picture of your whole room.

  3. OH yay! It looks great...
    After all that hard work it turned out amazing. :)

  4. Love it! Great job fixing it up. I actually have the same project that I need to get started on. I found my dresser next to our garbage bin. Ha ha! Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. AND I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. It looks so great! It looks like you used the original drawer pulls. Did you re-finish them somehow?

  7. Awesome! Well done! My sister and I used to do that kind of stuff all the time. That was back when DI and Savers actually sold great used furniture that simply needed a little tlc!
