Foiled! Literally!

Foiled! Literally!
I got an email from a gal today laughing about the “Better Befores” and she thought we should start another series about the unsalvageable crap that should have never made it onto your property in the first place. I said we could call it “Better … that you keep your money.” And this dresser from Kristy at 4 the love of wood looks like the perfect candidate to start us off. There is no saving this thing, right?


I mean, right?

Drats! Foiled again! Beautiful job Kristy! I can’t even believe my eyes.

    Shucks, it looks fab! I thought that it was going to be one of those things where it is crap, dh asks why you took it to add to the other crap…..then you eventually agree, but do not want to admit it! ;0)
    Nicely done!

    Such a beautiful job! I can’t believe it’s the same piece. Amazing what some sand paper, paint and some TLC can do!

    Wow, great transformation! I would have taken that “before” to the dump for sure! So glad Kristy turned it in to something so pretty!
