Get Ready for a Whole Bunch of Ugly

I have a client (Hey Shelby!!!) who saw a dresser turned into a TV stand that she fell in love with and she wanted one for herself. After weeks of Craigslist stalking I finally found one that she loved.

This was Shelby's inspiration. Who doesn't love Sausha from Sweet Pickins (formerly Show & Tell)?

Please prepare yourself for some ugly furniture!
This is the dresser I found.

Here's a close up in case you didn't see that amazing fruit motif. Don't be jealous!

 Oh, this poor top. I predict there will be a lot of sanding in my future.

I looking forward to working on this piece and I hope I meet all of Shelby's expectations!!


  1. Looks like you have an amazing before and after here. I think the uglier the "before" the more gorgeous the "after."

    Can't wait to see how it turns out!


  2. Yay!! I am so excited to work with you!! It's going to be awesome!!

  3. I can't wait to see what you do with it:0)

  4. You're teasing us.... can't wait to see what you do and how the fruit turns out.


  5. Can't wait to see final product!!!!

  6. I love the idea of leaving those two drawers out to make shelves!!!!

  7. No joke, my inlaws gave us a dresser identical to this and I've been meaning to redo it for about a year now. I love your inspiration picture. I may have to see if I can pull that off!
