Simplicity

I totally forgot to show you guys this dresser.  It sold a while ago but it is so darn cute I thought I should share.  

One of the perks of working at The Barn once a week is that people bring you awesome stuff.  People are always coming in asking if anyone wants to buy their old crap.  Well, most of the time it is just that, crap, but once in a while you get a little gem.  A lady came in and my friend Pat was working.  She brought a picture of a really plain dresser.  Pat, the wise woman she is, looked past its simplicity and gave her my phone number.  Believe it or not this dresser was turned down by quite a few other vendors.  Yay for me right?!  She texted me a picture and dropped it off the next day.  I loaded it up, with the assistance of my friend Amanda... once again, she saves the day, and took it strait home. 

The dresser was literally just white with little tiny white knobs.  I liked the clean lines and planked top and sides.  I took it home and sanded the CR&* out of it.  Seriously my arms were numb by the end of all that sanding.  Then I popped out all of the little white knobs, drilled new holes and put these adorable cup knobs on.  After just a few hours of work I think it is one of my favorite dressers ever.  It lasted less then a week at The Barn and found a new home with an expecting mommy.  I was not surprised it left so quickly:)





See, sometimes simple is best.

  1. Wonderful! I would have been happy to take it off your hands too. Love the style and six drawers is perfect. I'm sure it will make a great dresser for the new baby's room.
