$50.00 quick fix
mod podge, drawer liners, new hardware
|finished dresser looks great against the fabric wall covering|
I inherited my grandparents 2 bedroom sets that they bought in the early 1950s, they are solid oak and were of pickled wood, light beige, or yellow cream stain with sleek design and quality made.
Once again started with my trusty mod podge!
|small rolls of animal print drawer liners|
|they certtainly needed help|
The drawers are solid wood and put together with dove tails interlocking. they rarely make furniture like this any more. both my younger daughters got a set. However they positively smelled of tobacco , were very worn and many of the hardware pulls were broken or missing . For my daughters 15 th Bday I deiced to give them a face-lift!

We had preivously lined her bedroom walls with zebra fabric, another quick fix for a fast re decorating. I wanted to do this very affordable and I did. when shopping a TJ MaXX I found more paper goodies (this has been a good source for me lately) I found papers that were meant for lining drawers (yes on sale) in animal prints. I figured they are paper and should work. they sure did! In fact they were a pleasure to work with, while applying the room was filled with lavender. My Husband did all the cutting, being a builder he does a great job!

|Brunt Umber was the prefect choice|
|as always I paint the edges and scuffed the sides to bring it all||together|
