Whenever one door closes, another one opens, you know that saying? Well, whenever your car breaks down, and you have to walk home, you might walk right past a house with a bunch of free furniture in the yard and come home with a dresser. It’s basically the same thing.
That was Better After reader Marilynn’s experience with this cute little dresser that she dragged home and cleaned up. And she gave a much more logical paint job, which included painting the inside of the carved design to really show it off. You couldn’t even see it before!
This next dresser had a long way to go for redemption, but Reeves was patient and brought it back to life. All but that puzzling damaged top … what to do, what to do? Then it dawned on her … mom! (Moms are the best). Paintable wallpaper: a perfect inexpensive fix to hide the damage and add a little extra oomph. Almost looks like a carved design too! Love.
