if you paint it, it will come

Well it snowed for about 3 minutes here this winter and I have decided that if I paint a spring dresser spring will come. 
     Im tired of the gloom so here is my farm style spring dresser.  
This started out as a cheap sad yard sale find but with all furniture I saw its potential.  

This the before picture with an odd formica top that just had to go!

And after- I built a new top for it using old weathered barn wood

  1. Seriously?? Wow...nice makeover. Sweet little dresser. Someone is going to love it.:)

  2. SPRING COME (but not too quickly because I wanna see MORE pieces from Emily, trying to tempt you!)

    Adorable redo, Gal!

  3. As soon as I saw this thumbnail, I knew this was your! Love it, as usual. Aren't you a clever cookie for removing the table top??!!?? I'll have to remember that.

    Sorry I have been MIA, need to get caught up on your blog post.


  4. that was a very strange top choice, you are right. i LOVE the two tone colors you painted it, that's a great look!

  5. You nailed it! The colors rock and that top you built is just amazing! I would love for you to come link up at my party going on till Monday night:)

  6. I love those colors. I also have decided that since winter doesn't seem to be coming this year I'm going to skip right to spring!! :)

  7. This is so great! I love the two colors!! That yellow is fabulous! I'm featuring this later tonight!!
