Andrea picked up this dresser at a garage sale for a mere $10. Though it obviously needed some TLC, she appreciated its sturdiness and had a vision of its potential to take center stage in her living room.

Andrea was able to skip sanding the piece because she painted the entire dresser with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence. She then waxed it, first with a clear wax, then with a dark wax to give it the color variation and shine she desired. The top two drawers were removed and disassembled; Andrea used the drawer bottoms to create the shelves that hold the media equipment and baskets. The last step was replacing the hardware with two simpler drawer pulls. For a grand total of $86 for the dresser and supplies, Andrea created a much needed media storage stand for her living space.
