When we first had our daughter, we were so broke.
I mean, it, it was hard. But we managed to make ends meet and live the simple life.
I remember we didn't have any money that first year at all. My sister gave us her old 80's faux wood veneer dresser. (complete with the fan design) lol!!
I really wish I had a before photo (and I did at one point until my old computer crashed).
Anyway, it was peeling veneer, brown faux wood. I knew what I wanted right away, I painted it bright white in semi gloss kilz paint from wal mart.
It sat for years on end in her room that way.
Recently I purchased faux crystal pink knobs and just screwed them into the old pull holes. As of right now they are center..but I am contemplating removing them, putting wood putty in them and sanding and painting and adding the crystal dresser knobs to the ends of the dresser. I am still undecided.
Either way it's come a looong way, and i'm so mad at myself for not having before photos:(
And here is the shabby chic dresser re do, it's perfect for her room!!
