So once again I was chomping at the bit to get started so there is no before pic!!! Seriously, not thinking here! But... the twin to this dresser is in the process of a redo so there will be a before pic to that one, promise!!   I love love love grey right now, it's been the new white for a while now and here to stay.  The dresser is solid mahogany so the bones are great! Dovetail joints, eek!   But, just too outdated.  I styled this a little Old World and it kind of added that masculine feel to it.  Totally love it and I didn't want to return it back to it's owner!!    Here is a pic before pic of the matching night stand so you can get a feel of "what was."

    Beauty on a Budget!  Former teacher turned furniture painter extraordinaire, who would have thought :) I live in sunny San Diego but more specifically on Coronado island, my fairytale home.  I love being a mom, wife, friend and entrepreneur.  Besides "Garage 36" I have been fortunate enough to own a business with Rodan + Fields Dermatologists. Helping people get the best skin of their lives and helping them grow their own business.  I really enjoy working from home on my terms and create my own lifestyle.
