This was sanded, painted and drawers were wallpapered with a nautical border.
Solid wood dresser from storage unit.
this is painted finished tall dresser and repainted headboard.
this was a skanky horrible, dirty, and extremely nasty (get the picture) dresser found in storage unit. I sanded the top, lined the drawers inside and then gave it a makeover.
this plain jane headboard was on the side of the curb for trashday. I gave it a pop of turquoise and put it with the other dressers.

I took different pieces from the trash and from a storage unit I won for 30 dollars that had two dressers in them. I transformed it all into a beachy style bedroom set that included a mirror I painted white (also found in storage unit with dressers), added a 6.00 nighstand I painted in matching white/turquoise and sold the 5 piece set for $360 dollars in 8 hours on Craigslist.
