I found this beat-up old dresser on Craigslist and brought it home for $15.00. I loved the little details and I saw some potential. The yellow was a fun color, but not my style and it really needed a fresh coat of paint.
I also found this little bird at the local thrift store and decided to give it a make over as well.
I spray painted the bird an antique white and I sanded, primed, painted and distressed the dresser. It really adds a shabby chic/cottage feel to the room.
You can find this and other great frugal ideas at The Shabby Nest.
