Thursday Repost: Craigslist Dresser Makeover

SAVE MONEY.  DIY.

I think it is probably safe to say any makeover deserves a repost, am I right?

We got this dresser off of Craigslist for just $40.  She’s a beaut, right?  Well, maybe not when we got her, but after a bit of work, she’s as good as new.

When we showed up to look at it, I was ecstatic but it is solid wood and heavy duty.  The drawers were also in good working order.  Here’s what we did to give it a new life.

Game Plan:

1.  Dust off the dresser.

2.  Fill in the nicks and scratches with wood putty.
