hubs & i had been looking for a large 9 or more drawer dresser for our master bedroom- we'd struck out repeatedly on craigslist for anything in our price range. then, lo & behold, as we randomly wandered the flea market one weekend, we came across the perfect thing! here's my terrible-basement-before shot:
while we were at the beach over labor day, hubs's mom mentioned that she had a chest she'd always wanted painted... it sat between the living room & dining room holding all the magazines, crayons, cards, etc. that we usually use at the dining room table at their beach house.
so when she came home with a bag full of cans of white spray paint, hubs & i got to work!
