Black and Silver Mid Century Dresser Makeover – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

I hope you’re having a great week! We have had quite the week. ;) Nothing is 100% until all the paperwork is signed and a closing has happened, but so far it looks like we’ll be moving. Not the FunCycled store, our home! I’ll share more details as everything comes together, but man am I excited about what’s to come. Why am I telling you this before it’s all done? Well, we are going to have a barn sale to sell much of the furniture that I’ve had for a couple years but haven’t had a chance to re-purpose yet. Mostly because if I haven’t gotten to it in two years, I probably never will and because I REALLY don’t want to move it, ;) The prices will be amazing! I may have some personal items and I will definitely have lots of left over paint so plan to come by! We’ll be having it on October 9th and 10th from 9am-2pm! Please plan to swing by and tell all of your friends, ok?

This week’s transformation is pretty cool if I do say so myself. We bought this dresser at a barn sale that raises money to help orphans in need.  It’s my favorite reason to buy furniture… to help others. Here it is before:

Here’s a quick before and after for Pinterest!
