Miriam found this beat up dresser on Craigslist for free (she says, “I love free!”) and without any spending guilt she was able to get really creative and take a risk on this one.

She gave this dresser some Colorado pride!

From Miriam:

I decided to paint the Colorado state flag on this four drawer dresser. Here in Colorado EVERYONE sports the flag in some way: clothing, bumper stickers, hats. I thought a dresser would be cool to do. I sanded & primed this dresser & then picked a blue that had a gray hue to it. I didn’t want a dark blue dresser. I then hand painted the Colorado logo in the center. I changed out the knobs to give it a more modern feel.

Thank you Miriam!
