True story: we thought Jen might be pulling a fast one with this submission. We almost couldn't believe that this beast of a dresser could turn out like it did. Want to see what we mean? Check it out.

After inheriting it from her aunt, this dresser sat in the garage for months. Jen began experimenting with paint color, but nothing looked right. She even dismantled it, only to discover particle board. Yuck! Then, as Jen puts it, "this project got a little more interesting."

From Jen:

We had some old pine that we had picked up somewhere, but it looked way too new. We aged it using steel wool and vinegar. Look what a difference that made!

See more details on Jen's blog on a post appropriately titled, Who doesn't love a good makeover? We sure do.

Thank you Jen!
