True Trash to Treasure

A picker of mine, someone who shops for goods for other dealers, came across this awful dresser in the trash. He sent me a picture and I said "bring it over". Now it truly belonged in the trash in it's present condition. Filthy, ugly and full of leaves. I thought the lines were cute. After a good scrubbing and a little creativity a charming dresser was born.

I don't know how I missed this post before. I guess I was just too distracted by that tassle!

But now I have seen it and I must say I love it! Great lines! I love what you did with it and love the accessories on top. Gorgeous! Can't believe it was in the trash!

And also, I found one of those quilted throws today that you mentioned. I really like it. Thanks for the idea!
