Dresser From Patties Surplus

This dresser came from a thrift store in South Carolina,  I really liked it, Mr. Sensible was having a hard time with my "vision"  I convinced him to go ahead and get it anyway.  Love it when he says "well if you think it will work, I can make it"  YES!!

My thought was since it only had ONE top drawer could we possible cut it in half and make two out of it?  Why yes we could do that.  It was a really big drawer.  So Mr. Sensible took the front off of the drawer and cut it in half.  Then he remade that drawer to fit and made another drawer for the other half of the front piece.  Redesigned the whole top of the dresser to hold two drawers and have an open middle with a flat bottom to hold your TV components.

Then we painted it black and distressed it.  As you can see the drawer we cut in half was rounded with lots of grooves in it so distressing was really distinct. 

We took it to Treasures Resale Consignment Store and it SOLD  Yay!!

Have a great weekend we are off to Florida on a Picking Trip!
