I absolutely love when a DIY project takes someone else’s trash and turns it into a beautiful new treasure. Larissa from the DIY blog Prodigal Pieces found a double waterfall Art Deco dresser at a friend’s garage sale, old and broken with knobs missing and the veneer peeling off.
Because her friend thought it was just useless junk, she was selling it for only $5 — and Larissa saw the potential for a great DIY project.
Just like the time she turned an old desk into a beautiful French vanity, Larissa proves that with a little bit of love and a lot of vision, an old piece of furniture can become something truly stunning!
Larissa found this Art Deco dresser at a friend’s garage sale, marked for a measly $5. But since her friend thought it was junk, she ended up giving it to Larissa for free.
It’s clear the old dresser had seen better days. The veneer on the front of the dresser was cracked and falling off.
She painted the rest of the dresser, following the pencil-drawn design.
The windshield wipers and turn signals for the van are both made from drawer knobs.
She named the dresser Beep, how cute!
