Another Craigslist Find - 5 Drawer Vintage dresser

Most of my weekends are pretty hectic, but last Sunday was an exception. I stayed home pretty much as I was little under the weather. After a nice festive lunch, was going thru the craigslist casually when I spotted this vintage beauty. It was love at first sight :)

It's little difficult to get an yes from hubby for craigslist purchases, unless I tell my design and execution plan. He is worried that the garage will again turn into junkyard, lol!! I was able to convince him to come along and bring home this beauty for 35$.

I have been looking for the wide dresser for a long time now. This dresser was perfect match for what I had in mind, but tad bit tall.

Before buying I had noticed that the top portion is little smaller than the bottom three drawers. I was so excited to check if I can remove the top part, I started working on this as soon as we hit home. Top part was held using few screws.

Yay!! I was able to take top part off.

Only problem, there is no top :)

Here is a before and after.

Stay tuned to know more about this dresser's makeover.
