Before: Four-drawer dresser, white & ugly!
During: It got a chocolate brown base coat.
And, VOILA, the finished product:
Here is a breakdown of the cost:
Dresser: $10 / CraigsList
New Knobs: $17.52 (8 @ 2.19 each) / Target
Paint: found quart I already had / garage
Paper: $5.40 (18 sheets @ $0.30/sheet) / on Sale at Hobby Lobby
Mod Podge matte finish: $5.99 / Hobby Lobby
Shelf Liner: $5.99 / Target
Total Cost: $44.90
Potential Savings: could have found cheaper or bulk knobs. Hobby Lobby paper savings was spectacular but I could have waited until the Mod Podge went on sale. And I could have opted for a different shelf liner, purchased it from Wal-Mart and maybe saved $1-2.
