I bought this Tiger Oak Dresser, a chest of drawers and a chest in 1985. I loved it then I love it now... and most of all I love the morning sun painting stripes on it.
And Pardon Me, but my dresser is not ugly...
On an episode of Flea Market Flip on HGTV, the contestants were told to find something Old and Ugly and make it pretty...
Guess what they picked? MY DRESSER... She pointed and said Well that is UGLY..they painted it and covered the drawers with decoupaged old love letters over the beautiful grain of the wood.
I could not find the photo from the show, but did find the above which is what they did to the one on the show. I found this one at Forever Decorating, click the link if you want to know how.
I love the show because I am all about Up Cycling anything that can be saved. I like both of these light fixtures created from old things..
Photo's from this sight.. Before and After Images from Flea Market Flip. There are 90 and I have seen all of these created..
