“We purchased a cool dresser from Second Use on Black Friday. I had been looking for a campaign style dresser to repaint for my 5 month old daughter, Murphy’s room. I trolled craigslist every day but couldn’t find what I was looking for at the price point I wanted. Then I went to your website and boom there this was! The pulls on the dresser are what got me.”

Materials Used: We went and purchased a navy blue ‘Admiralty’ paint at Home Depot and went to Michael’s to get the gold spray paint for the pulls.

Creation Process: I wanted navy and then I did a quick pinterest search and decided that gold would look perfect.

Inspiration: Cindy Espinoza is someone I used to work with and I see the amazing pieces of furniture she re-purposes and I knew I couldn’t buy another new piece of furniture. Just like baby clothes, dressers are something that should always be purchased second hand and then given a new and refreshed life!”
