Dresser Repurpose


I traded dressers with my sister-in-law and got this way cool one. She's the one who put chalkboard paint on the drawer fronts (using spraypaint - sounds easy!) - genius idea. Functional and fun. This is now in my entryway and has solved the problem of piles of shoes and gloves. Chalkboard paint has endless possiblities.

This piece is so cute. I love how the chalkboard paint makes it functional and unique.

Wow.... I am totally thinking I may have to copy that! Copying is the best form of flattery, right?????? I repaint furniture to sell.... and that WOULD sell!

Stop by my painting blog and say hello sometime!
