So, what did you do this weekend? Did you hit up the thrift stores and find any treasures?Amanda from Heart Tree Home found this amazing campaign style dresser at a thrift store for 25 bones! I can see how the untrained eye would skip right over it. That greenish wood tone is rather nasty. If ‘queasy’ was a stain color, this dresser would be on the label. And it doesn’t do much for the aging hardware either. But with a new backdrop of glossy white, the weathered bronze now looks ultra-hip. Me likey. Thanks for sharing Amanda!

    My son has a very similar dresser in his bedroom-yes, stained in “queasy”. I’m so excited to see it painted. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll consider this instead of buying new.

    The dresser turned out great, but I’d love to know where the tree jewelry thingy came from. Love it!
