A Phantastic Way to Phind a Deal

A little TLC goes a long way... scoring the best deal may take a little love.

This French Provincial Maple Triple Dresser, has major potential. The drawers are strong, they work perfectly and the whole piece is solid, however, it needs some sprucing up.

Several options come to mind when I look at this piece. The easiest solution would be to paint the dresser for an instant face-lift. Clearing any extra clutter is effortless with this nine- drawer dresser since it has such ample storage space. I found this example of a similar dresser and I love the pop of color against the muted gray walls. The existing handles can be kept on and painted the same color as the dresser or changed out with new ones. The addition of a glass top provides more durability and makes it easy to clean.

Another option would be to transform it into a bathroom vanity. It would be stunning in a simple, more contemporary setting. Its romantic shape and detailed
drawers would be a nice contrast to clean lines and modern finishes. You could insert two sinks for maximum usage or just one to limit the amount of modifications to the drawers. Detailed instructions for modifying a dresser can be found here.
A third option is to add some surely needed storage space to a baby or child's room. We all know how much stuff comes with a baby! Paint it soft cream and switch out the handles for crystal knobs to create the perfect addition to a little

girl's room. You could even use it as the changing table to start out. If you're really gung-ho I would love to see the inside of the drawers painted a complimentary color (there are nine drawers so this is only for the super ambitious).

We hope this has given you the inspiration to start a Phantastic new project!
