Ikat Mid Century Modern Dresser

My heart and eye are always drawn to the cast-offs. I think I even do the same people. I was always befriending the kids in school that no one wanted to play with. Yes, I was made fun of and assumptions were made, but I didn’t care. That’s how I felt about this worn out Mid Century Modern dresser I found online. It needs some attention, but that’s easy-peasy. Check out how I’m going to turn this into an Ikat Mid Century Modern dresser. Let’s have some fun! (new video tutorial!)

I’ll never deny I’m a sucker for mirrors in all shapes and sizes. They add light and depth to a room, but can be reworked in many ways. The size of this one kinda limited its repurposing capabilities, but you know I’m game to try.

My first thought was to find a dresser suitable and if that didn’t work out, I’d find a new use for it. Well, within 5 minutes of looking online, I found this antique gem right in my Read more

Boho Mid Century Modern Dresser

What’s a mom supposed to do when her kids ask to go to the thrift store? Take a deep breath and reply, “Sure, but you know, I just may find something there that I can’t leave and that means hauling it home, etc., etc.” They bat an eyelash, but I’m like…I want my storage space open just for a while! haha. Well, as I walked out to our vehicle I bid farewell to the open spaces and continued on my journey. Last week I showed you what I did with the farmhouse drop-leaf table I found that day.

Industrial Chest of Drawers Redo ~ Rustic Style

When you’re out shopping do you sometimes buy two of something simply because it’s a good deal? I do! Especially when it comes to furniture. A local seller was offering two chests of drawers that were relatively the same size, but differed in appearance. This one below is my subject for today’s makeover.
