Gang Tagged Dresser Gets a New Look

Well, I have to say, I think this is the first gang-related rescue I’ve ever featured.  Ha!  Candice of The ReFab Diaries found this gang-tagged dresser outside her Chicago apartment building.  In need of an inexpensive storage solution for the craft room she was making, she brought it in from off the street.


“I was oddly thrilled by the idea of painting over those tags,” Candice admits.  Using heavy duty latex paint left over from painting laminate cabinets, she completely covered all the scars, marks, and tags with fresh white.  She upcycled a leather strap into new drawer pulls for the three existing drawers.  Since the other drawers were missing, Candice made a colorful curtain out of some old fabric samples.  The result is the perfect solution for her craft room storage!
