Before & After: Garden Center

Here is the before photo....

& here is the after...


 
 
A close up on the handles

 Dresser - free from friends
Paint - left-over
Hardware - $24 from Hobby Lobby
Total cost for the dresser - $24 
If you are looking for Anthropologie-style hardware without the Anthropologie price, check out Hobby Lobby! Not only is it less expensive, it's usually 50% off! And they have some of the exact same hardware as Anthropologie!

it looks awesome! i am so loving that mirror you did and need to do one- it all works so well together and it is good to have red by tour door, according to feng shui i think. it just look sso cheerful! and it will be so nice at christmas all decorated as the colors will work well. you can do so much with white and red! LOVE it!

I love everything thing you do.

What I'd like to know is.....where do you find the time for these projects????

The dresser looks lovely!

How do you do all of this?!? I swear you should have your own TV show on HGTV or something -- I never even watch that channel, but I'm pretty sure you'd fit in and be a super star!!!!

Mandi Miller said...

Wow Wow Wow!!! That looks awesome!

Jennae said...

This is really a beautiful transformation. I wonder, though, how it will hold up outdoors. Is it solid wood, and did you use exterior paint? Either way, beautiful job, and your styling of it is awesome!

Wow! I love it! You definitely are taking the idea of "outdoor living space" to a new level! And I love the mirror that hangs above. I'm definitely bookmarking that tutorial! And I'm a new follower :)
