Up-cycling old furniture is my favorite new hobby. Have I mentioned that? I don't share every piece I work on, but thought this was a big enough transformation that it was worth sharing.
A friend gave me first dibs on this beat up old dresser that she no longer wanted.
With a little silver paint and a lot of elbow grease, I give you this:
Unfortunately it wasn't the exact silver look I was hoping for...and it's not my best work. But it's pretty cool, huh? I need to invest in some knobs and maybe some new knick-knacks...I'm not crazy about the way it's styled right now. Even still, it's a nice addition to my humble abode.
P.S. The birdcage is also an up-cycling project from like two years ago. It still had the $84 price tag on it and I got it for free off some ones curb. Then spray painted it.
