DIY: My $20 Dresser Gets A Makeover

I found this dresser at a garage sale last month and immediately knew I had to have it! Our new bedroom is pretty small and doesn’t have space for the lowboy dresser we had in our old room so I knew I’d eventually have to replace it with something more practical for our setup.  I’ve always loved the look of campaign dressers, but buying them brand new was never an option (tbh, buying anything brand new is rarely an option for me cause I’m forever #ballinonabudget).  After a couple weeks of searching, my appetite for a bargain was satiated when a couple in our neighborhood was selling this dresser for only $20! I knew it would need a little TLC (I’m referring to both tender love and care AND tboz lefteye chilli cause that was blasting on the spotify when I spent my Saturday doing this), but with all of the remodeling we’ve done on our home I already had all of the supplies to give this thing a quick makeover!

DIY Marble Tray

Total Cost: $12 // Total Project Time: 15 minutes
Few materials evoke high-end living as simply and effectively as marble.  I’m a huge fan of the sophisticated stone and find myself buying everything from lamps to stationary in its’ lavish pattern.  A few weeks ago I was eyeing this marble tray from Macy’s but couldn’t justify spending the $79.99 asking price.  I decided it would be more economical (and fun) for me to replicate it so this past weekend I gave it a go and absolutely loved the end result!
