Thanks to a good morning of yard sales, I was able to make over this area for only $33. The picture below is before. The white dresser was just too large and bulky for this space.
The after: I got the large gold frame for $5, the cake stand for $5, the milk bottle for $3 and the dresser for $20.
The dresser is pine and had been painted white, and then stripped. Bits of white paint were remaining, which I loved. I would have liked to have just waxed it as was, but there were a few water spots on top. And, the wood tones in my dining room were much darker than the pine. I white washed it and then wiped that off. Then I waxed with the Annie Sloan clear wax, and followed with a heavy brushing of the dark wax.
