Free Dresser Fix Up - Paint It White!

Last October I saw this free Dresser posted on Facebook marketplace. I threw Dylan in the car and we ran to get it! 

When I picked it up I noticed that the previous owner had started spray painting it white, but did not get very far. Now normally I would never have thought to paint this dresser at all! The wicker crevices and the bamboo details would cause too much of a challenge for my typical quick flip! But the project had already been started and I was determined to finish it. It sat in my garage all winter and then finally on the first nice day of spring I pulled it out. 

With the help of a gravity fed compressor powered spray painter, I painted this bad boy White. Of course I forgot to take a before photo but here she is in her luminous white washed glory!

I actually think I’m going to keep this one for now. 

Wood Tray Upcycle - Thrifty Rustic Beach Style

The spring season always inspires me! I find myself hunting for furniture to fix up and flip. This little quickie was my first project of the season. It was a perfect little launching off point! 

I went to a nearby rummage sale - hooray for rummage sales! - and they had to fill a garbage bag for a dollar deal! I shuffled through their clothes and home goods, kitchen wares and filled my bag with miscellaneous items I definitely did not need. I found a few cute onesies for my one year old and yet another green shirtfor the two year old. 

Then I spotted this simple wood tray! Yes! And the flipwas on. Here is what I did to it!

I love how it came out! I got that twine at the dollar store last year and have had that paint for a while so this cost me about $1 and 30 minutes! 

Wishing you all a wonderful spring!
