    Great Job and beautiful color combinations. I’m sure it will sell fast. I’m so glad you save these poor things from the dump. Its amazing what could be kept out of the landfill if more people thought the same way. Please keep up the good work, it really does make a difference.

    What a great job on this dresser. You have transformed her into such a beautiful piece. She will be snatched up really quick at the Paris Market for sure. It is so beautiful. I am going to start to call you the furniture whisper!!!!! You put such wonderful life back into abandoned furniture. Great job.

    Excellent rescue!


  7. Karen, what a great transformation! Love the re-purposing of it, the baskets, the color choices… Absolutely gorgeous! sharing!!

  8. You are a furniture Goddess for saving the dresser without drawers!!
    I love her she turned out, colors are gorgeous and the baskets really completes her 🙂

    I’m currently working on a dumpster dresser too, when I found her,she was upside down with drawers all over the place. My first thought was “I’d take her if she had all the drawers…”
    And she did so I brought her home. I always hesitate if there’s something missing.

    Please keep up the good work!!!

  9. Your dumped dresser turned out PERFECT. Love the blend, the baskets and the cute tags!:) You are Furniture Lady of Liberty with Mallet in hand saving the planet one dumped dresser at a time!

    You funny girl~well I now know someone caught my tip on filling holes!
    I have picked up sO mAny tips through my years in construction/cabinet design.

    I l-o-v-e those colors you chose, and the whole piece looks fAb!
    I have a dresser much like yours I’ve been toying with making a bookcase, I guess I will go forward now! You’re always so inspiring!

  12. Nicely done! I’ve done this myself with some roadside rescues. I know how satisfying it can be to take something someone obviously saw as trash and fix it up. No drawers? Doesn’t bother me at all!

  13. Susan says:

    I love it! And thanks for the tutorial too 🙂

  14. I am in love with those colors — blended perfectly! I’m gonna have to try this technique, Karen!
