Before you dump that dresser...

There are so many great ways to rehabilitate old dressers. Paint it, distress it, stencil it or spruce it up with some fresh hardware. I've got one lying around and while the wood is beautiful, the piece needs a lift. Here are some oldie but goodie "after" shots from Design Sponge and also some DIY dressers that I found on Flickr.

Thanks for this!

that last one is my favorite for sure. so understated and powerful all at once.
