It was the very first piece I purchased with the purpose to flip. My husband challenged me to do a quick makeover and see if I could sell it on Craigslist. Within a few days of posting, I received this email.
She bought the dresser and became my new friend. We laugh and joke about how we met on Craigslist. :)
I couldn't find the before pictures of this dresser. To be honest, I am not sure if I took any. It was the generic wood stain with brassy pulls.
The goal was to give the dresser a facelift that would appeal to the Craigslist shopper. Black, white and cream are always good sellers but they are very popular so I went with a dark grey with black pulls.
It now lives in my friend's guest room.
This dresser and friendship also brought on my first custom job. My friend had a desk for the room and she wanted me to paint it to match the dresser. I don't have any pictures of it. Before or after. None. We are talking about 2 years ago y'all. Me making extra money with a hobby while teaching. Not turning the hobby into my passion and full time job. I was not thinking about taking tons of pictures back then. It really is amazing how much has changed in 2 years. :)
Here is the desk now living in the guest room with the dresser.
So pretty! I can't wait to be in New Orleans in a few months to refinish a dresser for her nursery!!!!
