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!!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
