How I took the Bachelor out of the dresser..Furniture Makeover

This is a story of a guy, a girl........ and a dresser . 

Once upon a time when the girl first met guy he was a hunky, hot, eligible bachelor. She.... a creative, smart, DIY bachelorette and not so bad to look at her self.
And although the guy was really hunky, his furniture ....well not so hot,but the girl fell in love anyways and since she was creative, she saw the possibilities in him and his furniture. 
 
And so the years passed, dating, marriage, kids and that same ole bachelor dresser.
 Their life was abundantly blissful and full of so much love for each other but unfortunately not so much for the dresser.... But all that was about to change.

 See, that's where the creative girl who saw the possibilities years ago transformed that dresser and gave it a new life and purpose.... as a credenza in her office.


In the end, the hunky guy was still smitten and very much in love with the creative, smart, DIY and not so bad to look at girl, and she with him. 
And the couple and credenza lived happily ever after.
The end.

Its as though the "dresser" was just waiting to be a piece of office furniture all along ... it seems perfect for that function with those drawers in the middle. Lovely paint job. Robin

I never would have guessed from the "after" how that piece began. You made a great choice, and I think your hubby did too. The piece is beautiful, just like you.
