70's Trash to Guest Room Chic

I don't know where the time goes...I bought this piece for $50 from a local thrift store back in April and just finished it in the last couple days!  It took me forever to finish the last details, but I think it was worth the wait (well that's how I'm justifying my procrastination)

Aside from the finish I really like the hardware- it has character

After a couple coats of Zinser Primer I painted her with Rust-oleum Blossom White in satin. I sprayed the hardware with Rust-oleum Nickel.

I added a fabric bulletin boards to the inside as well as labels for the drawers.  We have lots and lots of guests (Mom is coming tomorrow) so I wanted to provide extra storage for them as well as guest supplies (more on that soon).

Look closely and you can see Finley on the bed ;-)

I painted the inside of the drawers Martha Stewart Cobblestone (left over from an earlier project)

You might recognize the liner - it's the Allen + Roth Wallpaper from this project.

I think my husband and maybe a few of my friends were really doubtful about this transformation....
