Finally got the pulls and label holders to put the finishing touches on our dresser re-do. A $39 Thomasville Dresser Goodwill find turned into a treasure. Our first attempt at distressing/repurposing a piece of furniture, and we're very happy with the project. Entire project, including dresser, paint, label holders, pulls, etc., under $100.

Metal label holders, ordered from These are scrapbooking label holders, and the labels were made on my computer and printed on card stock to go in them. We only had to purchase small brass brads to attach them.
The before. Great quality Thomasville Dresser, but someone had spray painted it black.
