Shabby to Chic

...Or at least I think so! I had this dresser in my room and have always thought it was butt ugly! So, I have been checking out some other blogs where they take old, busted crap and turn it into the new hotness and I figured I could try my hand at it.
Before:


After:

I love the "distressed" look of it! I love the turqouise color! I just freakin love it! I added some new brushed nickel handles, and got the lamp at Target on sale for $12 and I love the fuschia with the turquoise.
Now I am looking at my ugly desk and thinking...the next time we have some sunny weather I've got some painting to do!!!

You did a great job on your dresser redo. Love the color and the handles really finished it off.
