It's a Goodwill Party...or in my case a Craigslist Party...

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick is having a




I have had this little gem in my garage for a few weeks and Sarah's Goodwill Party motivated me to get er done! My son needed a new dresser really bad so of course I went on to craigslist to have a peek at what I could find and I found this...




It had about a 1/4 inch layer of paint on it so I had to sand it down and start over but I turned it into this...




Which I love, it will go perfect with his new furniture. I still need to put contact paper in the drawers because they are still sticky from the 70's version that was in there when I got it. I will show off more pictures later once I have it moved into his room.

I just got a dresser at a yard sale for $5 & can't wait to "fix" it to be more my style.
