Coastal Chic Dresser/Night Stand Makeover

$25.00
2 Days
Medium

I hit the jackpot last week at an estate sale where I purchased this dresser and night stand for $10 & $2 respectively. The dresser had some damage to the front "kick plate" and legs, but a little wood putty and a new wrap-around base, along with some paint details and new drawer pulls made this a really fun project to complete. It's going to be hard to let these go - I want to keep them!!
After some TLC, paint, new pulls and base.

"Before" (ugh!- but only $10)
A mid-century "colonial" style, ho-hum dresser.

Just the right amount of distressing and some tinted wax to finish it off.

So happy with the results.  I'd love to keep this one!  What do you think?
