See that dresser? The one above, with the big blue arrow. Yeah, that dresser. Would you guess it's second hand and that it didn't always look like this? This is one DIY project I had to stand up and applaud as this piece was transformed with materials from the plumbing aisle. Want to see it up close?

We stopped in over at Vintage Revivals to check in on the room makeover that this stripe and chevron hallway was part of. The budget friendly transformation is a great one, but the star of the show (in my opinion... that's all that matters right?) is this dresser.

There are so many dressers out there from thrift stores and estate sales that are great solid finds with less than awesome looks. Sure you can paint it, but that doesn't really change what the piece feels like.

Mandi trimmed thin pieces of PVC pipe into skinny rings and attached them to the drawer fronts of this piece. She then used inexpensive trim pieces to surround the look, giving it a Mid-Century feel without the insane price tag. Check out the full makeover reveal at Vintage Revivals.

*Editor's Note: Mandi has shared the tutorial for this project over at Vintage Revivals and it doesn't take as long to create as you might think!
