Which Way Did This Dresser Makeover Go?

Well, it’s easy to figure that out, because this dresser is full of maps!  Karen from The Salvaged Boutique rescued this dresser from the curbside on garbage day.  Although it had sustained some minor damage, she knew that it could be repaired and restyled.


After repairing one dresser drawer, Karen applied a couple coats of chalk paint and distressed the paint a bit.  She lined the drawers and decoupaged street maps onto the sides of the drawers. “In order to save on hardware, which can get expensive, I decoupaged wooden knobs with street maps too!” Karen tells us.  I love that shade of turquoise!

Sewing Table Redo

At Homeroad, Susan found this table on the roadside.  The top was somewhat damaged and needed a really good sanding, but she thought it wouldn’t be too hard to give it an upgrade.

When Susan upgrades, she really upgrades!  The table now sports a new finish, pretty paper lined drawers, and new handles.  It’s ready for a new life as a sewing table.  Can it come live at my house, please?
