An ugly dresser gets a rustic make-over


I scraped all of the sponge-paint off of this $25 craigslist dresser and recovered it with cowhide and upholstery tacks. http://www.thevspotblog.com/2011/02/holy-cow-cowhide-dresser-make-over.html

    I realize it's personal taste but neither one does it for me.

    Love the wood after, love the black pulls on it, and love the cow hide!! I would not want to clean it, but I can appreciate awesome thinking outside the box and hard work! (I know what it takes to put in ALL those tacks!). I love it!
