The Third Installment of the Dresser Upcycle Project

Just finished my third project based on dresser upcycling and I was so excited by the end result that I couldn’t wait to write about it!
I did originally see this idea on Pinterest, showed you the photo in the last blog post. When I saw that photo, I knew I had to make one as well.

Here is my result:

This was truly a labor of love. It combines all the things I love into one thing… upcycling, painting, sewing and fabric and creativity. And it results in a beautiful yet functional piece of furniture. It has spawned a desire to redesign my guest room and take the room from a classic style to something a little more inviting and warm. I think this will be the piece that I build the room around.

So, now I need to plan for the next project!

Happy Crafting Y’All!
