Dresser Re-do

I had this in my shed forever.
It was in pretty bad shape.

The top has some problems 

and the sides......

I don't have before pictures.
Of course I started painting then thought of it!!!
Bad before and after blogger!! 
 Bad, Bad

As you can see it is a really nice piece.
Painting it white gave it a whole new life!
Leaving it wood and repairing all that needed to be done
would have taken way to long for me!
As I said before 
I hate sanding!!!!

Found this lamp in a salvage yard.
The cord was very old and I didn't want to plug it in and 
have it blow out my electric so
I stuck a candle in it!

And these letters are my Grandparents love letters!
Everybody had such nice penmanship back then.

  1. What a pretty white corner. Love the lamp turn candlestick holder idea, so gonna have to borrow that one ;))


  2. I love all the white. I definitely want to start adding more around here.

  3. Thanks for the kinds words. An yes IN-N-OUT is the best!!

  4. What a darling dresser! You brought life back in this piece! Great idea to repurpose the old lamp. You have a one of a kind candlestick. Penmanship is dying breed. I think because so many people text and email. Love your dresser and the cozy corner!


  5. I hate sanding too. Love the white. Thanks so much for joining in this week.

  6. Your dresser turned out lovely it had some great details already. What a great idea for the old lamp. Your little corner looks so romantic.

  7. it looks so pretty and sweet in white! you can glue down the veneer on the sides if you are worried about it chipping any more. that's what i do when i have veneer like that. just a thought- it's so perfect in that space!

  8. I love the candle stick. That is thrifty and cute!!

  9. Not only do I love the dresser Jane, but I love the whole corner you have this in....Just perfect....

    Take care,

  10. The dresser is great! Thanks for sharing over at WW.

  11. Your dresser turned out beautiful, Jane!
    Have a great weekend!
    ~ Jo :)

  12. I think the 'issues' just add all the more charm! Love the white, too. Perfect!

    Would love for you to drop by and link up to Passion for Paint this weekend.

  13. Hi, I found you on Melissa's Inspired Room site. Wow, what a difference a little paint makes! If you didn't have a close up on all the defects, I doubt anyone would even notice. Love the mirror and the chair. The total look is just lovely!

  14. What a great white dresser so shabby chic. Love that look. It is perfect in that corner. Next piece for me will be white. Cute idea for a candle holder too. Thanks for popping by my blog!
