Flea Market Dresser

My second project for the living room was the entertainment center (which are completely over-priced, in my opinion). After deciding that I didn't want to buy (can't afford) a new entertainment center, I settled on re-doing some kind of dresser for storage.

Surprisingly, it really didn't take too long to find a good deal with lots of drawers.
I found this dresser at a local flea market for only 50 bucks!

All I did was sand it down, repaint, and distress!

I got the cute knobs at World Market, and the pulls at Target.

It's not a huge transformation, but I like it and it has tons of storage!

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

I've decided to focus my attention to one room at a time in the new house, so I've only gotten to the living room (I'm really slow). I guess if I'm averaging 6 months on each room it'll be 2016 before this place is completely lived-in. Yikes...

My first project for this room was the coffee tables. My mom had all three just sitting around begging to be loved! So they were FREE!!! I don't have any before pictures of the exact tables, but they looked a little something like this

and this.

After a little sanding, painting, distressing. They now look like this! (sorry for the bad quality pictures)

I love them! Let me know what you think!!
