Welcome back my Beauties!
Can you even believe it? I have another makeover for you! 
I have been blasting through projects this last week as we get ready to head west for a few weeks for our annual hiking trip.
Today I am going to show you how I easily made over this vintage little dresser.
I picked it up at a garage sale for $15
I know it looks like it isn't in that bad of shape, but the bottom two drawers were missing there bottoms, and the piece had been stripped at one point but they gave up on certain parts and then did an  antiquing  treatment over it.
So we used some LAUAN wood we had in the garage and made new drawer bottoms.
For the fronts I just cleaned them up and set them aside.

For the base I picked General Finishes Basil Milk Paint
to keep that vintage feel

I used it on my other small dresser makeover and just loved it. You can see that makeover HERE --> Vintage chest of drawers makeover

So after prepping the base by sanding and wiping down,
I gave it two coats and let it dry.

Once it was dry, I put the drawers back in and used my 
Deco art Winterberry Wreath Stencil and placed it where I wanted it.

I used my General Finishes Milk Paint in Alabaster because I loved how the white played off the wood finish.

I also added these simple white knobs to play off the wreath.
I just loved how it came together and it was so simple.

is now ready for it's new home.
