Dresser Gone Beach Cottage

I received this FREE dresser. That is right FREE. How do you turn down FREE??? Nothing about it went with the beach cottage theme I am after, so it needed some help. I love painted furniture. I do not love the price tag on most painted furniture.  The makeover for this dresser was really easy.  I removed the decorative wood slats around the top row of drawers because I didn't really care for them. I sanded down the top, painted the drawers with The Freshaire Choice paint in Healing Waters, the feet were left alone, and then polyurethaned the maple wood top.

This picture is more true to the actual color of the dresser now. 

I really love this dresser now!! Happy Friday EVERYONE!!
