Lori blogs at The Velvet Glove, and loves transforming furniture. She found this chest of drawers behind a building.
It was in pretty bad shape, but Lori could see the possibilities. She gave it a completely new look with a stained top, striped sides, and a stunning vintage French advertisement on the front. Pretty rhinestone drawer pulls completed the makeover.

Lizzie from The Overbrook says, “I rescued this dresser after seeing a curb alert on Craigslist. Right away, I knew it would be perfect for my boyfriend’s apartment, since he doesn’t have a lot of furniture.”
Jennifer had her little sister help her with some basic repairs to the dresser before she gave it a new coat of glossy black paint. She also switched out the boring wood knobs that were original to the dresser for something a little more decorative. I like how Jennifer actually used a different set of knobs for the top two drawers, which definitely adds a lot of visual interest to this piece.
