$8 garage sale Harlequin dresser makeover

Welcome Back my Beauties!
Sorry I have been neglecting you lately
but as you know I am working on my art studio.
I have LITERALLY been working night and day on it.
So much that I have not had much time to post furniture 
I finally had a little while to sit and edit some pictures
so I would put up a makeover for you!.

This is what it started like.
The pictures actually make it look better than it did.
It was terribly beat up on the sides and the top.
This was the piece that I picked up when we were camping this summer
and my Hubby was oh so THRILLED to help me pack
in the suburban.
We had hit a church garage sale and there was NO WAY I was passing up
an $8 dresser.
He knew it was a lost cause so he just kept his mouth shut while we
crammed it in the truck. (my brother in law did not and actually sat laughing
and ribbing my hubby about us jamming a dresser into our truck)
Thanks GARY! :)
Anyway, I let this baby sit for a while in the garage and finally got motivated to work on it.

I had no idea what I was going to do with it,
just that I needed to fill some booth space so I had to get to work. 
I started by painting the whole thing a simple creamy yellow. 
Very light and very simple.
Well, You know me.
It wasn't ME... So I got to thinking.
What could I do to Beautify this??
I saw my harlequin stencil sitting on the workbench and the rest is history.
I grabbed some gold craft paint and got to work on the stencil.
I didn't want to overdo it and I also made sure that the stencil lined up all the way down the 
drawers as to not get to much of a dizzying effect.
When it was all dry I actually put the original hardware back on.
I loved the look of the classic hardware with the
classic harlequin pattern.
I waxed and buffed the whole thing and she was ready for her closeup!

I couldn't be HAPPIER with how she turned out.
Its not my normal style but it was fun to do something
I hope you enjoyed this latest makeover.
I am soooooo close to being finished with my 
art studio but I don't want to do the full reveal 
until we get the lights up
and I can take PROPER pictures.
You can see the BEFORE Here!
and since I love ya 
I will show you a little Sneak Peek of 
the progression. :)

Hopefully I will be able to get the REAL photographs of the full reveal next week!
Until next time,
go make someones day BEAUTIFUL!!!!
