Sarah took her chances on a very typical dresser at Goodwill — you know, the ones that are a dime a dozen and often get passed up by everyone. Follow me after the jump to see the incredible transformation that turned this sad little piece into a unique gem…

She first sanded down all the old paint (always test for lead first) and then stained it with a lovely Mahogany Gloss Stain. She then purchased drawer pulls and tapered legs and worked them in the same fashion before moving on to the final touch. The painted stripe treatment on the side of the dresser really makes in stand out and gives it a quirky, vibrant personality. Nice job, Sarah!
