New Life for an Old Dresser

To date, this is my favorite makeover.  I purchased this piece for $7.49, that makes me so happy!  

Here is what it looked like Before

I created an inspiration board to help me get a feel for what this piece was destined to be.  

The above pictures were taken from the following sites, from left to right:

Here is the finished piece.

This piece has been sold and will go to its new home tonight.  I hate see it go, but am looking forward to may next makeover.
