Dresser Upcycled to a French Country Buffet

$20
Easy
Before: It was an old built-in dresser in a kids room in an old log cabin that someone was sending to the dump. The top was ruined and was thrown away. The sides were just made from plywood. I was told to just let it go to the dump because there was nothing I could do to it to make it pretty or usable.
Plywood sides
I took the drawers out and took the drawer hardware out.
I cut the slats out to add two cabinet doors on the front for more storage.
The doors are from the salvage store for $1.99 each. They were painted the same color as the rest of the cabinet and I decoupaged a couple of pencil drawings I had onto the door fronts and framed them with some scraps of trim lying around.
Added legs from on old twin head board I got for $5 and made the top from a broken all wood door display from Lowe’s that I got from $5…. I made a stencil from my printer of an old hotel sign in Paris and then stained the door and sealed it so that the top could be used for serving. Painted the whole thing, added some new hardware for $4.
Total cost of about $20. Finished!
