My $15 Score!

I found this dresser at the Salvation Army for only $15. While it's not a true campaign style dresser, for $15 it will work!! The top two drawers were missing (hence the price tag), but I wanted to put the television above it and put the DVD player in the area where the drawers would be.

My sweet husband cut a sheet of plywood and secured it to the inside of the piece, making the "shelves" for the DVD player and docking station. The piece of furniture is actually laminate, so I had to prime it with oil based Kilz, and use a few coats of oil based paint. I still want to add the right angle brass thingies to each corner, but for now, I really like how it turned out! (By the way, I'm going to put a chair under each mirror - kinda bugging me in this picture!).

Happy Weekend!!
