When life deals you a sponge painted dresser there's only one thing to do — anything! This dresser was a hot mess before it received a beautiful makeover with a rather unusual material. Moo-ve over sponge painting it's hide, er high time this chest of drawers had a fresh look instead of being put out to pasture.

Over at The V Spot, Vivienne has recently been hard at work on this drastic dresser makeover. She found this beauty of a dresser on Craigslist for $25 and was able to look past it's past paint job. After a few weeks of tracking down cow hide on the internet she had enough to cover the drawers and set to work.

The transformation is dramatic and might not be for some, but it really goes to show that you really can make something out of nothing. This is a great way to incorporate hide into your home for those that love the look but aren't too into the price that rugs usually have attached to them. Plus, there's no worry about pets ruining things. Check out the full transformation over at The V Spot.
