Inspiration/Interpretation: Grand Chiffonier by Aria

We found this wonderful Grand Chiffonier when browsing Aria's website and fell instantly in love. Handmade to order by French craftsmen, this solid cherry dresser can be completely customized with the colors of your choice. Unfortunately, the £2350 price tag and the fact that the dresser is across the ocean mean we are unlikely to be adding this piece to our collection...

We do however think this is an excellent inspiration for a DIY project. A quick search of Craigslist produced the gem at the left for only $25; add in the price of paint and you've got a truly beautiful dresser at a small fraction of the price of the original. We have no space right now for another dresser, but are keeping this project in reserve for a possible January Jumpstart...

Do you have a DIY that was inspired by a particular piece that was either out of your price range or simply unavailable? If so, mail pictures (of both the inspiration and your interpretation if possible) to colleen@apartmenttherapy.com and we'll highlight them in future Inspiration/Interpretation posts.
