Teenage Wasteland: Chest of Drawers Redo

Like the mirror I mentioned yesterday, this chest of drawers has been around for a while. If it's not already there, it's rounding the corner to 40. At some point, it ended up in William's room, and though it was somewhat beaten up, we found love for it in our heart.

We fixed a broken leg and some drawer guides, sanded off the old paint, gave it a new coat of chocolate love, and changed out drawer pulls. All in all, we think this is an amazing face lift for less than $15.

Look at this wicked fun drawer liner we found under all his clothes. It's at least early-70s. I wanted to keep it and put it back in. But he said no.

Ooh, I wish you could have kept the liner. Too cute! It came out great. I have an old dresser that I'm dying to re-do too. :)

Oh I love it! That came out really nicely, so modern and sleek. (and I liked the liner too! - frame it?)

Thanks for the sweet words on my blog! I hope you like the pasta!

Well that is no longer a waseland. You know have chic and modernland. You did a great job, thanks for sharing what paint can do.
