Vintage Dresser Reveal: B's Room Part IV

Okay ya'll!!  Here is the BEFORE pics of B's dresser...I unfortunately did not get a true before {with the drawers actually in the dresser!}, but this will have to do!!  Take in her natural get ready for steps to my version of vintage/shabby chic....:))

Here are the steps to re-doing an antique dresser....1st-don't get frustrated. 2nd-you will get frustrated, but try not to let that totally ruin your experience.  3rd-take your time and DO IT RIGHT.  4th-think it through before you will be so much happier!

5th-when you discover that the drawers WON'T GO BACK IN, don't get SO ANGRY that your family fears you...and if that does happen, you might want to just go ahead and put yourself in timeout!!

6th-borrow your dad's (neighbor's, uncle's, girlfriend's) electric sander and GET TO WORK!!

7th-pretend you know what you're doing, when inside you feel like this....

8th-stare at the mess you've just made, and add that to the 2 million OTHER things you will have to do during "clean up!"  Gawh!!

9th-clean up the drawers...and maybe crack a teeny, tiny smile!!!

10th-now throw something on top for an "official" AFTER photo!!!  11th-smile BIG, laugh out loud with pure giddinessMaybe.even.squeal!!




 ....yeah, that's right....I'm in love!!"

I'm almost ready to reveal the entire room!!  EEEK!  Ya ready?!
