My First Trash 2 Treasure

I've been inspired by a few blogs to not only try to revamp an old and nearly unusable piece of furniture and turn it into a gorgeous piece of stunning furniture, but to also try to find a piece of furniture in need of this make-over for free (or nearly free.)

Look what I found at the side of the road:

Now, some may say "go put that nasty piece of garbage back and wash your hands, quick!"

but I see... dead furniture something. I don't want to give it away, but I really think I can do something kickin' awesome with it! I hope to have it completed Memorial Day Weekend, but don't hold me to that date. It really depends on how much rain we get this month so I can get this project sanded and painted outside.

  1. I would not say that! I would say quick, run, grab it!! I love the legs and the little wheels. I have had an infatuation lately with furniture with little wheels. I hope I find something great with wheels soon!

  2. i LOVE it! i am so glad you rescued it! you could easily cut some mdf shelves or plywood shelves and repaint the dresser, then paint the inside shelves a fun color, and put some baskets there, or use as a tv stand and put cable boxes there. it has such potential! great find!

  3. What a great piece you found. Much potential there. Super find.

  4. Very nice bones. Can't wait to see what you create with it! Great find.

    I'd love for you to check out my blog for a CSN give away! Have a wonderful day!

  5. COOL...curbside find! Thank for sharing her at NTT!


  6. From one who's family has been yelling, "Put that junk back"! No mom, "I'm not helping you do that"! "Don't bring that piece of junk into the house"!!!
    I've been listening to this for years!
    I'm proud of you!
    Keep up the good work!

  7. Super cool - love the little wheels, such a little touch with a big punch! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  8. Oh my word, I was driving down Olson Road the other day and there was this dresser missing two drawers and I said "What a shame. That cute dresser is missing two drawers!" My husband said, "Don't even think about it!"

    And home I came and could not believe my eyes when visiting your blog........Someone rescued that little dresser missing two drawers! It was you!!! Small, small world.... Good luck with your project.
