Don’t you just love looking at furniture before and afters? I do. But I’ve noticed that when I look at so many of them, sometimes they all start to look the same.
But once in a while, one stands out.
Vivienne over at The V-Spot recently shared a Craigslist dresser that she transformed. I couldn’t believe the dramatic change!! She purchased it for $25, and it originally looked like this…
Ummmm…yeah. Looks like someone was prepping that dresser to go on a hunting trip or something. Anyway, after stripping off all of the crazy paint and refinishing the wood, Vivienne added a little something special to the drawers.
I know that cowhide is one of those things that people have a pretty strong reaction to…you either love it or hate it. I happen to LOVE it!! What can I say…I’m a Texas girl, and perhaps just a country girl at heart.
I used to office out of a furniture and accessories store here in central Texas that sold what I would call Texas rustic furniture (but not the junk with the stars all over it), and it was pretty pricey. This piece looks like it would fit right in there!
I applaud Vivienne for thinking outside of the box on this one. I think it looks FANTASTIC!! It makes me want to start shopping around for cowhide remnants!!
