before and after: thrifted chest of drawers

| before and after makeovers

hi friends! i have another before and after to share with you! i found this fella at a local thrift store for $50 a while back and took him home with some big beachy plans in mind.

here's the before, it has 6 very nice sliding drawers in it- but boy is it heavy. i'm sure you would have loved seeing us trying to get it set up in the lawn- but happy that you didn't!

and here's the after! i was a little uncertain about my choice of sea-green at first, but it has really grown on me. i attached 4 wheels on the bottom since it was so heavy and have paired it with a few pillows on the bed that match perfectly to help the whole room come together.

hanging above is my diy patchwork art and on the table is a little artwork from one of our favorite bicycle artists, chris koelle.

and though i'm not sure where she got it from, my sister recently sent my this birch vase. it looks so pretty with fresh flowers in it, and i think of her every time i see it. :)
