Stenciled Dresser

Traci at Shabby Gal’s Nest found this dresser on the curbside during her town’s annual spring cleanup.  She was able to overlook it’s poor condition and see how pretty those curves could be with some sanding and a fresh coat of paint.

The dresser was missing a few drawers, so before she painted,  Traci made some boxes to fit in the empty drawer spaces.  A few coats of paint, some stencils, and the addition of some pretty glass knobs turned the trashed dresser into a real treasure.  It’s so feminine–I think it would be perfect in a little girl’s nursery.
