Winter White perks up sad little dresser

I love this  dresser with the little mirror panel.  I think there was at one time a wood panel with a hinge, but it’s gone. Now there’s just the little mirror that lifts up to reveal the contents of the drawer. This would be a great place for jewelry, huh.



She was a sad looking thing sitting in the thrift shop but I saw her potential. The guy who helped me load her up said she had only been on the floor about 5 minutes. Lucky me, came in at just the right time!


I painted her and her original hardware an off-white and used my handy-dandy electric sander for some heavy duty distressing.




She looks so fresh and clean now.
Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think of the makeover.

    Really like the white against that mirror. Bright and cheerful, great for a wintry wet and gloomy season.
