Friday's Find: $5 Wicker Dresser!

TGITF Friends! Today's feature is a $5 yard sale find.  I gave it a fresh coat of paint, some new knobs and a little something extra...

$5 Yard Sale Wicker Dresser

The plastic drawer pulls had to go and I found these pretty pastel glass knobs in one of the closets I have been conquering. I had saved them from an old desk I used to have and they created the perfect replacement.  Now for that little something extra...

Just because I needed a neutral white for the outside, didn't mean I couldn't add a little pop of color on the inside! I used floral scrapbook paper left from a previous project, gluing two pieces side by side.  Gerber daisies...

  5. Such a nice piece, great size and so useful. Also, I like that you added some color in the drawers. Like the snapdragons the best. Colored knobs are nice on it too.
    Stay warm.

  6. That is an awesome find! I'm out thrifting now, waiting for my daughter to finish eating her lunch here in the Salvation Army parking lot :-) I hope I find something here ... I have a wall in my hallway that needs a little something. Happy Saturday!
