My Latest Craigslist Find

Last Updated on December 28, 2015 by Kristi Linauer

Last night, my mom and I went and picked up a little dresser that I found on Craigslist. It’s solid wood, and was only $55. What a bargain!

So where is this little dresser going? Right here…

Now comes the hard part…deciding how to refinish it.  Oh, I’ve got some ideas bumping around in my head.  Perhaps something like this (but maybe not quite this chippy)…

found on The Hunt For Vintage

Or maybe something along these lines…

So, who knows what I’ll end up doing with this dresser.  But I’m excited about the possibilities!!

Psstt…If this is your first time seeing this room, rest assured that the picture above is the “before” picture.  This room tranformation is just getting underway, and there’s a long, long way to go!!

    Interested to see what you end up doing. I pass up so many pieces like this because I don't think I could ever refinish it. I've seen so many awesome furniture pieces get completely transformed, though, I want to try it every time I see another fun piece.

    You can still use it, if you will just renovate it put some new designs that will help it to look new. Imagination is a big help. Those things are nice and i know it will be a good design inside your house.
