DIY Sister Entry #2

So my sister is totally getting ahead of me with the DIY projects 🙂 I figure she has two large advantages:

1. She has access to my mom’s attic- endless supply of potential and fun to hack furniture.

2. She is not pregnant 😛 (lol, seriously my motivation at this time is trying to get all the laundry done before the baby enters our lives).

This is her lastest project that I am trying to attempt her to give to me as a gift! She found an old night table in the attic, removed the drawers, sanded it for hours, and then primed it. She was debating what color to paint it, and finally decided on a colder white with very light blue undertones. She then put the original handles back on the dresser.

Almost finished!
Almost finished!

 

Still not 100% satisfied with her project, she spray painted the handles a brassy gold color! The result is awesome! Dresser still looks vintage but with a nice modern and clean vibe.

Now I just need to persuade her to ship it to me! 🙂
